St. Pete Beach

St. Pete Beach is probably the most well known beach in the St. Petersburg area, especially for visitors. Many of the larger hotels and resorts call this beautiful 3+ mile long stretch of white, sandy beach home. If you are looking for action, people watching and plenty to do you and see will find that this beach has it all.

Officially St. Pete Beach is its own beach town and shares the island known as Long Key with another beach town called Pass-a-Grille. Right in the middle of Long Key is the iconic and historic Don Ce Sar hotel. For locals everything on Long Key to the north of the hotel is called St. Pete Beach, and southward from the Don is Pass-a-Grille. The sand and water you’ll find at each are the same, but the vibes are very different.

The more bustling St. Pete Beach can be a bit crowded, and you won’t find a lot of shade. But you will find a multitude of friendly walk-up Gulf-side restaurants usually operated by the hotels as you walk the beach, parasailing and other water sports, and it is easy to find loungers to rent for the day. At the Don Ce Sar and many other hotels, you can even buy a day pass that gives access to various amenities if you are not already a hotel guest.

The sand on St. Pete beach is powdery and white, perfect for building that castle and comfortable to walk and lie on. If you enjoy walking or jogging on the beach, you will find miles of gentle shoreline to explore. And hey, of you get tired of walking, there is a cozy little beachfront bar just about everywhere playing live music and serving up rum to your heart’s content.
