Pass-A-Grille Beach is a quiet community at the very south end of St. Pete Beach. It is on the tip of the barrier island that separates the Gulf of Mexico from Boca Ciega Bay.
One story about how it got its name says it comes from the French for “Passe Aux Grilleurs” which means the passageway of the grilles.
This name was used to describe the many fishermen who used the land on the tip of the island as a camp and grilled fish there.
There are plenty of interesting old houses, shops and restaurants in the District. The official count is 97 buildings.
The grand centerpiece of this neighborhood is the magnificent Don CeSar Hotel, also on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
This 277 room hotel was built in 1928, and is operated by Loews Hotels. It is one of the most magnificent of Florida historic hotels.
