St Pete Beach

An Award Winning Beach!

In the last fifty years, St. Pete Beach, Florida has developed its own identity and become a vastly popular vacation destination, but years ago, that wasn’t the case. In fact, at one time, the islands that made up Tampa Bay’s Beaches were known as four different keys rather than a cluster of beaches: Long Key, Treasure Island, Sand Key and Clearwater Beach Key.

Long Key, the most southern island, was originally made up of four areas:
​St. Petersburg Beach, Pass-A-Grille Beach, Don CeSar Place, and Belle Vista Beach. In 1957, the four communities merged and formed the City of St Petersburg Beach. Later, in efforts to achieve its own identity, the City voted to shorten its name to St. Pete Beach, not to be mistaken with “St. Pete’s Beach,” which some travelers have been known to do.

Pass-A-Grille Beach, the most southern tip of St. Pete Beach, is thought to have gotten its name from the Cuban fishermen, known as "Grillers", who camped along the waters edge of the island and would smoke their fish before returning home. Traveling thru the pass, you could see the fires on the beaches, hence Pass-A-Grille. Soon residents began to make Pass-A-Grille their home and in 1902, the first store was built on Long Key Island in Pass-A-Grille. 

​In 1905, Pass-A-Grille opened a Post Office and in 1911, State Legislation declared Pass-A-Grille a town and twenty-one residents voted at the first election. In 1914, electricity came to Long Key Island (St. Pete Beach) and in 1922, the island's first fire station was established - Pass-A-Grille Engine Company Number One.
 
St. Pete Beach and Pass-a-Grille Beach are both filled with great stories, wonderful restaurants, beautiful sunsets and picture perfect weather. If shopping interests you, visit the "Historic Corey Avenue Shopping District" or any of the other great shops located on Gulf Blvd.
