Located on Treasure Island, Sunset Beach is known for its picturesque sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. Proposing at sunset here, with the sound of the waves and the beautiful sky, can be incredibly romantic.


2. Sunken Gardens

Over 100 years old, the Sunken Gardens are a botanical paradise featuring cascading waterfalls, beautiful flowers, and tropical plants. The lush surroundings make it a serene and picturesque place for a proposal.


3. Clearwater Beach

Just north of St. Petersburg, Clearwater Beach features miles of sugar-white sand and crystal-clear waters. It's busier and more commercial, which could be ideal if you're looking for a lively setting.

4. Vinoy Park

Offering views of Tampa Bay, Vinoy Park is perfect for a scenic, waterfront proposal. It’s also less crowded than some of the more popular beaches, providing a more intimate setting.


5. The Pier

The new St. Pete Pier provides a modern and vibrant setting with plenty to do and see. You could propose with the backdrop of the city skyline, or near the end of the pier overlooking the water.


6. Dali Museum

For art lovers, proposing at the Dali Museum might be perfect. The museum’s stunning architecture and the surreal artwork create a unique and memorable setting. The location of the museum on the waterfront provides beautiful views of the bay, especially at sunset. Proposing as the sun sets over the water can be incredibly romantic.


7. Fort De Soto Park

If you and your partner love nature, consider Fort De Soto Park. It’s a large county park that offers beaches, a historic fort, and kayak rentals. You could propose on a secluded part of the beach or during a kayak trip through the mangroves.


Romantic Destinations in St. Petersburg 

St. Petersburg is full of romantic beaches and hotels. These are some especially romantic locations for a proposal over a glass of wine, at a spectacular hotel, or on a beautiful beach.


8. Don CeSar

Known as the "Pink Palace," this historic hotel on St. Pete Beach offers a luxurious beachfront setting. It's perfect for a sunset proposal on the beach or in one of their elegant dining rooms.
