Drone Video Shows Off St. Pete Beach From A Bird’s Eye View

Our drone video of St. Pete Beach probably won’t tell you what you don’t already know about this slice of paradise situated on a sliver of land on the Gulf coast of Florida. This prime vacation destination is already known for its top ranked beaches, silky smooth sand, family activities to keep everyone happy and a row of beach bars and resorts to satisfy everyone’s desire. And let’s not forget about the sunsets that seem to expose the temporary and permanent residents to an evening full of colors we never thought the sky could reflect.


What our drone video does reflect about St. Pete Beach isn’t new – it’s just a different view and even through the eye of a drone, it doesn’t cease to amaze.

Droning Around The Postcard Inn, St. Pete Beach, Florida

When I found out one of my friends was heading down to the St. Pete Beach area to shoot some drone videos, I immediately set about contacting resorts and beach bars to see if there was any interest in letting him shoot drone video around their property. The response from the Postcard Inn was immediate – I had already worked with them on a set of articles for their Islamorada property and they were more than thrilled to help us build our portfolio.


The resulting drone video was more than I could have ever hoped for. It takes you on a journey around the Postcard Inn’s property that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to enjoy while highlighting the natural beauty that surrounds it in St. Pete Beach. From the white sand and rolling waves that front the property on its beachfront to the cooling blue waters of the pool that functions as the centerpiece of its courtyard, the Postcard Inn gets to show off what makes it a longtime favorite of visitors to St. Pete Beach. The video even pauses for a moment at their beach bar, taking a few seconds to salute the beach bar bum in all of the readers of this blog and making me salivate like Pavlov’s dog (see beach bar, start salivating). The video fittingly starts with a sunset and ends with a sunset, wrapping us in the warmth of the sun’s glow that the inhabitants of St. Pete Beach get to enjoy every day. Some people just have it good.

If the video doesn’t appear on your screen, you can view it here on YouTube.

Did you enjoy this video? If so and you would like your property featured, email us at info@beachbarbums.com. Years of hanging out at beach bars have made us excellent storytellers and we’d love to tell your story.

It’s a St. Pete Beach Kind of Week

Anyone who has followed this blog for any length of time (anyone?) knows that I’m a big fan of St. Pete Beach, Florida even though I’ve never visited. Everything I’ve heard, read and seen has done nothing to dissuade me from the opinion that its spot near the top of my wish list is warranted. From the beach bars to the powdery white sand and spectacular sunsets, St. Pete Beach has grabbed a hold of my wandering soul and yelled “Go south, young man!” In celebration of my far away obsession with St. Pete Beach, I’ve decided to dedicate this week’s posts to everything St. Pete Beach from the resorts to the beach bars to the people that call it home. We’re celebrating St. Pete Beach this week and I hope you come along for the ride!

The highlight of the week will be the release of our first ever drone videos. Completed with the cooperation of the Postcard Inn and Caddy’s on the Beach and produced by Chris Sanchez from Warsaw, Indiana, the videos are just the beginning of our foray into helping beach bars, resorts and other travel and tourism related business tell their story. From video to photography to writing to social media management, they all have a story and we want to help tell it.

So sit back and enjoy this virtual tour of St. Pete Beach. We think you’ll like the story it has to tell.

Reality is merely an illusion, albiet a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
