St. Pete Beach

St. Petersburg  is home to pristine white sand beaches, clear gulf waters, warm sunshine, and plenty of hospitality.  It attracts visitors with the famous Salvador Dali Museum, award winning Fort De Soto Park and the St. Petersburg Pier. There are a wide range of museums, art galleries, natural attractions and entertainment. The neighboring beach communities offers unique shopping experiences such as Johns Pass historic fishing Village and Boardwalk.

Up and down the Pinellas County coastline you will find everything you need for the most memorable vacation. Whether your style is to stretch out in the sun or investigate an old fort we have it all! The city, located close to Clearwater, is known for its warm weather and breezes that blow off Tampa Bay.

Saint Pete Beach is located on a barrier island just off of the mainland of Florida. It’s close to Treasure Island and the city of Saint Petersburg. It has a population of just over 10,000, but almost one third of its residents are seasonal.

There’s plenty to do in Saint Pete Beach. You can go para-sailing, dolphin watching, skim boarding, snorkling, shelling, or just relax on the beach. There’s plenty of shopping on the island too. The Pass-a-Grille neighborhood has shops and an outdoor market near the beach. If you think you’d enjoy catching a movie, check out the Beach Theater. Built in 1939, the theater shows a wide variety of films and serves beer and wine. Fishermen will want to head to the Merry Pier for fishing charters or bait and tackle.

This classically beautiful beach is in a highly developed area with high-rise hotels, restaurants and shops. Laze on the beach or shop ‘til you drop or both.

The city accompanying St Pete Beach is, of course, St Petersburg, Florida, affectionately called, The City by the Sea. The historic and heart of the city is called ‘The Quarter’ so ask anyone and they will direct you to this famous area.
