Things to Do in Redington Beach
Though only one square mile in size, Redington Beach offers plenty of attractions that transcend its small stature. It boasts four town parks, five public beaches, a community recreation area with basketball courts and a large children’s playground, and a causeway with great fishing and benches for relaxing.
Anglers looking to reel in a trophy tarpon will find several great charter operations with seasoned guides eager to dispense expert advice on the best ways to hook these prized fish. If tarpon isn't quite to your tastes, there's also mackerel, redfish, sea trout, snook, amber jack, and many more native species in the Gulf.
Plenty of nearby kid-centric entertainment options makes Redington Beach a great vacation destination for families, too. Pack the kids in the car and make a nine-mile drive north to the Xtreme Fun Center, where laser tag, indoor batting cages, and arcade games will keep them entertained for hours!
Once the sun goes down, adults can find their own entertainment at local bars that feature nightly live music. Head over to the Daiquiri Shak Raw Bar & Grille, where you can croon along to a spirited cover of "Margaritaville" while sipping on a tropical daiquiri.
