A Holiday in the Sun

Florida’s west coast is famous for cooler weather and world-class sunsets this time of year, making it the perfect setting for a holiday in the sun. Award-winning St. Pete Beach is an especially enticing location to ditch the colder weather, as it’s been named one of TripAdvisor’s Top 10 Beaches in the U.S. for the last 5 years and counting. Located right on St. Pete Beach, TradeWinds Island Resorts plays host to plenty of action-packed celebrations. Discover all of the excitement taking place this season!


You don’t have to just dream about a white Christmas at TradeWinds, substitute sand for snow and get ready to Just Let Go! Guests can enjoy a wide array of activities to get in the Christmas spirit like ornament decorating or mason jar snow globes. Take in a Christmas flick from the comfort of a heated pool with a dive-in movie. Who knows, the big guy in red may even appear in person to spread a little holiday cheer! 

The highlight of any Christmas stay is the incredible Christmas Buffet held annually in the Grand Palm Colonnade and Ballroom. Enjoy a brunch of delicious seafood items like gulf shrimp, crab claws, black mussels, poached salmon and more. Customize your omelet or French toast with plenty of tasty toppings or dig into luxurious protein with a full carvery station. It wouldn’t be Christmas without plenty of sweets, either and we’ve got the dessert bar to prove it. Load your plate with pumpkin cheesecake, caramel apple pie, red current torte, cheesecakes, assorted pastries and a chocolate fountain! Don’t worry about over-indulging, you have the whole afternoon to sleep away in a hammock or beachfront cabana!

New Year’s Eve

Resolve to recharge, relax and ring in 2018 on one of the top beaches in the U.S. with the perfect New Year’s Eve plans. Ditch the ordinary New Year’s Eve event and get away for a toast by the coast on December 31st. Spend the day in sun-soaked splendor on the beach and then dance, dine and drink the night away at the annual New Year’s Eve celebration.

The New Year’s Eve party kicks off with live music from crowd-pleasers Motel Funk and the Railway Kings. Motel Funk is a local band whose set list covers a wide array of favorites in the pop and funk genres whereas The Railway Kings are all country, soul and rock n’ roll. There’s no shortage of delicacies featured in the extensive buffet to help keep everyone fueled through the night, either. Merrymakers will be able to make trips to the full open bar all night long for their favorite cocktail, beer and wine. The perfect end to the evening is the champagne toast and balloon drop at midnight!

Toast by the Coast two night stay packages are available at TradeWinds Island Resorts and include discounted rates and two tickets to the big bash.
