Far enough from St Petersburg and Tampa to savor a slow-paced stay, yet within reach of the downtown nightlife, Treasure Island is a gem of a holiday destination. With the bay on one side and the white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico on the other, the barrier island city delivers water views in every direction. Get away from the nine-to-five grind and into the perfect tanning position at these hotels in Treasure Island, all bookable with Culture Trip.

Switch your office chair for a lounger at this beachfront hotel. With white sands and clear waters right outside your suite, you’ll forget all about your to-do list. Free breakfasts, full kitchens in each suite and a grocery shopping service mean you’ll have no reason to venture off property for food – except to sneak next door for an ice cream at Shake Shop.

Treasure Bay Resort and Marina, for literary inspiration

You don’t need an oversized room to make the most of your stay at Treasure Bay Resort and Marina, but they’re going to give it to you anyway. Between the water-view rooms and Hemingway-inspired furnishings, you’ll be inspired to sip scotch and sodas at the Sunset Cabana Bar until you pen the next Great American Novel. Charter a boat from the marina in the morning to clear your head in the sea breeze.

Thunderbird Beach Resort, for muscles on the beach

Don’t want your exercise routine to take a holiday? With complimentary access to the Treasure Island Athletic Club, it doesn’t have to. Wake up and stretch on your pool-view balcony, as you plan your after-workout cool down. On your return, whip up a light and healthy breakfast in your kitchenette. Spend the rest of the day relaxing your muscles on the white sands in front of the resort.

Island Inn Beach Resort, for minimal exertion

A laid-back vibe makes for a relaxing holiday at Island Inn, where the beach begins 20 steps from the elevators and the water is only 260ft (80m) farther. The seconds saved moving between your penthouse suite and the ocean can be spent topping up your memory bank at the resort’s volleyball court, corn hole boards, private docks and Tiki Bar.

Bilmar Beach Resort, for activities galore

All you need to pack for your stay at Bilmar is a pair of flip flops, your favorite shades and plenty of sunscreen. Pay the additional amenities fee and kayaks, paddle boards and bicycles are all yours for the taking; make sure the kids grab their special welcome gift, too! If that all sounds too active, simply tan on the rooftop sundeck or in a beach chair on the shoreline before winding down by the fire pits at sundown.

Bayside Inn and Marina, for resting your sea legs

Those in the know will agree that the best way to vacay is by boat. When you’re yearning for dry land though, you can always cruise into Bayside Inn. Use the deepwater slip to stow your vessel, where it will float gently while you rest in your king suite. Afternoons are yours to savor, whether that be in the heated pool, at the beach or planning your trip from the bay into the Gulf.

Sunset Vistas Beachfront Suites, for the ocean-view penthouses

Don’t expect to venture far from this beachfront resort, though; between the white sand, three-bedroom penthouse suites with ocean-view balconies and the sparkling pool, all you’ll want to do is spend all day under the sun.
