Redington Shores Florida Weather – When to Visit

The best time to visit Redington Shores is between October and December. During these months, you’ll find low humidity, fewer tourists and many holiday events to experience. However, October and November technically fall within the Atlantic hurricane season, and even though they are not peak hurricane months, you should be aware of the possibility of a storm developing. July, August and September’s frequent rainstorms and January, February and March’s high volume of snowbirds (retirees and part-time residents from the northern U.S.) make summer and winter two seasons to avoid. If viewing wildlife is your main objective, consider visiting in April, May or June when migratory birds, stingrays and sea turtles are commonly spotted. While the area is different every season, Redington Shores benefits from warm weather year-round.

    Hey There Leahrae,

    Thank you so much for this great post and i can not wait to visit the US especially Florida. Redington Shores will now definatley be on my list of destinations. I love the sunny weather and the 360 sunny days a year really appeals to me. I also love the beaches with my favourite being North Redington Beach. 

    It has always been my dream to visit the US and i am really looking forward to a trip there. 



    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Glad you enjoyed Lawrence.  You would especially enjoy Florida!  Thanks for visiting beach travel destinations.

  2. Mike

    Hello there! This is an informative post! One of the states that I’ve always wanted to travel to was Florida. Never really planned for it though. Reading through your post, it does seem like a really awesome place to visit. I really enjoy the marine life and seeing sea creatures swimming around. There also seems to be a lot of fun activities too. Going to have to book a flight there one day. Thanks for compiling this!

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Yes you are going to have to book a flight here.  I think you would really enjoy given your interests 🙂  Thanks for visiting beach travel destinations.

  3. Sammy Allen

    Great article! I’ve spent a lot of time in Florida beaches. They are beautiful. Your article inspires me to go back to visit again soon! Would love to be there right now instead of in Los Angeles, lol. Thank you for providing all these options and the great visuals to go along with them. Sam

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Yes Sammy, I used to live close to LA.  I really love Florida and like that laid back feel here over LA.  I think we have great beaches and there are so many here in the Clearwater area that are not crowded.  Thanks for stopping by and I am glad you enjoyed my Redington Shores Florida Hotels guide.

  4. Mimie

    I would love to try jet skiing. And Madeira Beach sounds like a perfect spot. This place is worth a visit. I see Shores Beach has got enough activities to keep you busy all the time. And looks beautiful too. All these places looks wonderful.

    The Clearwater Dolphin-Watching Tour sounds fun too. I think it would be great taking your family for a vacation here and just enjoy as much activities as you can. 

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Jet skiing is a blast!  Best place to rent a jet ski is on St Pete Beach for sure.  Clearwater has rentals but you do have to go in a group like a tour.  Much more fun to go where you want.  The dolphin watching tour is a blast.  You will see them on the jet ski too though.  They love chasing the motor.

  5. Jeelah

    Hello Leahrea! This is a really good post to those who will be exploring Florida. I love how you provided not just the beaches themselves but also the activities you can do, the restaurants, and the hotels. Also, the price ranges are really helpful. This would help travelers budget their money beforehand. Thank you for such an informative article!

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      You are very welcome, thank you for visiting beach travel destinations.

  6. Lennie Blois

    Redington Beach looks like a beautiful place to visit. Over the years I’ve always wanted to visit but never have. Thanks to this page I have changed my mind. Florida looks absolutely stunning. I will definitely book for next June so i can miss the Snowbirds and all the congestion. Thanks beach travel designations. Cheers!

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Yes, you will want to miss the congestion, it does get bad here crowds wise….but mostly in Clearwater Beach and St Pete Beach.  The in-between towns fare much better.  However it is still not super easy to find a place to sleep.  I suggest doing that in advance.  Thanks for visiting Lennie.

  7. Kwidzin

    I love these types of articles.they always make me want to go out and do things and go places. So thanks for that.

    Scotland is pretty far across the pond, but Florida is one place I have wanted to visit in the U.S.  You have given me quite a bit of information, so I will start planning.  Looking forward to the beautiful area beaches.

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      I have always wanted to visit Scotland, but have not yet.  So I am thinking the scenery is vastly different here?  I think you would really enjoy visiting with the different culture, food, and our gorgeous beaches.  There is certainly plenty to do.  Thanks for visiting beach travel

  8. Aparna

    Hi Leahrae, 

    I have a plan to visit that side this year, as we have a wedding to attend later at the end of the year. I wonder if a road trip with a stopover at one of the beautiful resorts you have talked about, would be possible? let’s see. 

    Great information. I am tagging this for my wife and the rest of the gang to approve. 

    Thank u. Love,


    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      I think they will all agree.  Shoot there are so many beaches, great restaurants, the laid back atmosphere, and all the activities here….so hard to beat.  I love it here on the Suncoast.  You will too!  Thanks for stopping by.

  9. Michal Bahno

    Waw, this is a great article. 
    I am glad I have found it – a lot of useful information at one place. 

    Actually, I have been searching for some good hotels in Florida, but wanna go to the Westcoast this year. 

    The Redington Shores Florida Hotels seems like a great place to spend the autumn. 
    I look forwards to the largest speed boat in the world 😉

    Hopefully, my wife will enjoy it as well 🙂 

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      HI Michal, the West coast is definitely better, but then I live here so probably biased.  You will enjoy,. that I know 🙂

  10. bethebest#128

    This is a very beautiful, calm, and serene post! I would definitely like to check out these spots. I appreciate you for listing the prices of these places. Also, I have been dreaming of a vacation do this is making me very optimistic.

    What inspired you to write about Redington Shores?

    Personally, I think that this would be an excellent, affordable shore to visit.  I think that this post is a major win. Very fun, engaging tourist attractions.

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      I live close by and some friends know about my site and wanted me to do the area 🙂  So I did 🙂  Thanks for stopping by.

  11. LineCowley

    Redington Shores seems to perfect place if you want a more calm and serene destination in Florida. The Tiki Bar boat cruise sounds like the perfect way to end a busy day, with encounters with dolphins and manatees, while sipping a glass of wine.

    Would camping be an option in Redington Shores, or would high humidity and mosquitoes make it unpleasant?

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      There is no camping allowed on any of the beaches along the Suncoast.  You can camp at Fort De Soto Park which is great.  It’s close and beautiful.  I have never seen mosquitoes here.  Some beaches have sand fleas which I hate.  So I always take a beach chair.    Let me know if you have any additional questions. 

  12. Paolo

    I like to go to Redington Shores and set up a shade cape and loungers and enjoy the relax. The whole Clearwater (St. Pete Beach) stretch has nice beaches, in my humble opinion. And compared to many other options, Redington has good public beach access. And something I love is it’s good restaurants. I particularly like Seabreeze and Indian Shores Coffee.

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      You’ll find that yes, the whole stretch from St. Pete all the way to Clearwater and up to Honeymoon Island have great beaches.  Restaurants in all areas are wonderful.  Belleair is mostly residential, not much there.  But anywhere else, you can enjoy the beach and enjoy great food!  Thanks for visiting beach travel destinations.

  13. Max

    We are taking a road trip down to the Everglades in a couple weeks, and on our way back up we will be driving along the Gulf Coast of Florida.  Redington Shores sounds like a perfect area for to stop and take in some beautiful sights and to relax after a lot of driving.  And I’m sure the sunsets are unbelievable – the sunset cruise on Clearwater Beach sounds like the perfect way to end a busy day.

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      You will enjoy!  The Everglades are something to see for sure and the drive up the coast is beautiful!  Thanks for visiting my Redington Shores Florida Hotels guide.
