Sea Towers is a very large complex with 778 separate residences. It consists primarily of nine medium and high-rise buildings (5 & 12 stories) situated on the edge of Boca Ciega Bay. Although it carries a St. Petersburg postal address, Sea Towers is actually located in an unincorporated area ten miles from downtown St Pete. Sea Towers is situated just over the northeast boundary of the city of Madeira Beach. Its especially appealing to those who always wanted to live close to a beautiful, warm, white sandy beach as Sea Towers is within easy bicycling or even walking distance to the Archibald Beach Park in Madeira Beach.

Sea Towers also features an extraordinary number of its own recreational facilities. The high-rise buildings provide many of the condominiums with spectacular marine views that include both the inter-coastal and the Gulf of Mexico beyond. What some may consider a somewhat stark and urban appearance of the buildings is mitigated by the green well-kept grounds, lagoon, and beautiful waterfront setting. It is within walking distance to a beautiful new Publix supermarket, a waterfront smokehouse restaurant and tavern, a Japanese steak house, and a Walgreen's pharmacy. Sea Towers is also just a mile or so from many other restaurants, the post office at Madeira Beach, a large new Wal-Mart, and the large Bill Young Veteran's Administration hospital complex.

The governance structure of Sea Towers actually consists of a federation encompassing eleven different buildings, each of which has its own budget and rules. Nonetheless, all Sea Towers buildings the complex share many amenities such as swimming pools, a lagoon circled by a running trail, tennis courts, an impressive central club house that includes a performance auditorium, and even a fishing pier. The landscaping, roads, and common areas of the complex are exceptionally well-kept. Sea Towers affords quite a secure living environment as a gated community with a 24-hour guard service at its only entrance.
November 2016 list resale prices for individual units range from about $70,000 for a one bedroom without a view to $210,000 for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath renovated unit with spectacular water views located on the 9th floor of the Columbia Building.
