This is a nice beach. Cabanas available, food on property. Great place to go if you are into beach volleyball. Although there are a lot of people playing from club’s in organized competitions. Still a cool place to go even if you only watch!

The beach was great! It has a beach bar with good food and drinks. It also has cabanas and umbrellas and chair available to rent. There does seem to be some construction going on but no noise the days we were there.

Great public beach. We LOVED this beach. I can't imagine a beach any better anywhere. Cute snack shack, awesome Gulf Views, walking distance to beach bars and restaurants. Plenty of locals to get recommendation from. St. Pete Beach is permanently on my #1 vacation spot.

I recently returned from my 3rd visit to Upham Beach. Nice area- beach area is nice and wide, soft sand, nice water. Umbrellas and chair rentals available. Not too crowded.

This stunning beach is a gem! It's clean and the days we went, not crowded. Plenty of showers to wash the sand of your feet.

They've been building a rock jetty for months, so there's lots of fences and construction as obstacles. The beach is crowded. There are much nicer beaches nearby.

The beach was great but obstructed by construction which was an eye sore but we managed to get a great view of the sunset despite it. Other than that the water was great and the kids loved it!

Hi, The yellow tubes are gone since they did the beach restoration. Upham is just one area of St Pete Beach and it is beautiful but there are other places on the beach better for weddings. Try Pass-a-Grill, or the beach... More
