St. Pete Beach is a Florida resort city set on a barrier island, west of St. Petersburg.
It is best known for its beaches. St. Pete Beach’s shores include the longest undeveloped stretch of public beach in the St. Pete/Clearwater area at Pass-a-Grille Beach. It offers a variety of watersports, from parasailing and stand-up paddle boarding to windsurfing and kiteboarding.
It is home to the iconic “Pink Hotel.”...........
Welcome to Pass-A-Grille, the southernmost end of St. Pete Beach.
Pass-a-Grille is officially a part of St. Pete Beach, but it begins where Gulf Boulevard passes The Don CeSar. Local legend states that it was named from the French phrase Passe Aux Grilleurs (the passageway of the grillers) in honor of the fisherman who used to camp there.
Funny thing about Florida...
Places that you thought just existed in books—like Treasure Island—really do exist here.
Treasure Island, Florida got its name from an early hotel owner who buried and then "discovered" a couple of wooden chests on the beach. The hotelier claimed that the chests were filled with "treasure." News of the discovery spread quickly and people began calling the area Treasure Island. The name stuck.
