St Pete Beach
The City of St. Pete Beach is a barrier island community located just off the Pinellas County mainland of Saint Petersburg, just south of Treasure Island, and 20 miles from Clearwater Beach. With miles of pristine, white sandy beaches, year-round sunshine, an abundance of recreational opportunities, restaurants, and shopping, St. Pete Beach is one of the most enjoyable places to live and vacation, in the world.
The City of St. Pete Beach has a permanent population of about 10,000 residents but is also a popular winter residence for people living in other parts of the United States, Canada and Europe. Nearly 45 percent of the total residential homes and condominiums in St. Pete Beach are owned by people claiming primary residence elsewhere, reflecting a high volume of seasonal visitors.
St Pete Beach is within 30 miles of both St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport and Tampa International Airport. The Suncoast Beach Trolley, taxi and Uber & Lift allow for easy accessibility throughout the area.
St Pete Beach was incorporated in 1957 with the consolidation of the towns of Pass-a-Grille, Don CeSar, Belle Vista, St. Petersburg Beach and unincorporated Pinellas County to become the “City of St. Petersburg Beach.” (Located downtown St Pete Beach at 155 Corey Avenue St. Pete Beach, FL 33706) In 1994, the citizens voted to shorten the name to “St. Pete Beach” to lessen the confusion with the City of St. Petersburg, located on the mainland to the east.
Even with the name change in 1994, the city of St. Pete Beach is still frequently misspelled “St. Petes Beach,” “Saint Petersburg Beach” and “St. Petersburgh Beach.” Despite the confusion, the vibrant beach community – a collection of families, businesses, and tourist attractions – continues to thrive socially and economically, thanks to year-round gorgeous weather, entertainment, attractions, and public safety.
