The beaches in St. Petersburg are similar to those of Clearwater, but are less crowded in general. In Clearwater, you will find a lot of resorts and hotels. In St. Pete, there are more condos and private residences that line the beach. Beaches are less crowded in these areas, since they are mostly private. The public areas can get crowded on the weekends, and local area hangouts like Caddy's on the Water are packed on the weekends with partygoers.
