On the Gulf Coast of Florida sits a stretch of pristine white sand and warm ocean water. The jewel of this oyster, known as Clearwater Beach, is the Sandpearl Resort.
With luxury accommodations and the only AAA Four-Diamond restaurant in Clearwater, guests can expect a distinct experience. This property provides the duplicity of upscale and casual, making it a top choice for destination nuptials in Florida. It’s also the only property in Clearwater with private beach access, so the options for saying “I do” with your feet in the sand are seemingly limitless.
Sandpearl Resort’s dining options range from high-end and poolside to make-your-own s’mores on the sand. Caretta on the Gulf provides both indoor and outdoor dining options, as well as private eating areas for larger parties. Their dinner menu is a medley of steakhouse and sushi with organic pairings. This award-winning restaurant can provide an unforgettable experience for your guests.
For a more casual or celebratory experience, consider enlisting the Sandpearl staff to book a tour of local area breweries such as Sea Dog Brewing Company, 7venth Sun Brewing or Dunedin Brewery. There are also many casual beach options for dining and drinks within walking distance of Sandpearl Resort.
For the destination couple, the Sandpearl Resort offers a myriad of accommodations that can be transformed into your dream beachfront wedding. Whether it be a handful of guests or up to 600 of your friends and family, venues include beachfront, ballroom or the pool lawn with a waterfall. The only limitation to your special day is your own imagination.
The Sandpearl Resort is one of the premiere wedding destinations in Clearwater, Florida. After having the opportunity to experience this property firsthand and peek into a real-life wedding celebration, the draw is undeniable: cashmere sand, molten sunsets and consummate service.
