Although the threat of oil washing ashore has become an imminent reality for those up in the panhandle of the state, our beaches along the Sun Coast are still free and clear of any signs of oil, infact most recent reports position the spill at around 222 miles off our shore.

According the St. Pete / Clearwater Visitor’s Bureau “to date there is no threat that would impact our area beaches in any way,” they go on to assure, “all of our accommodations, restaurants and attractions- as well as our 35 miles of award-winning beaches- remain 100% open for business.”
