Located in the middle of Boca Ciega Bay, between Saint Petersburg and St. Pete Beach, lies Isla Del Sol. The history of the island began in 1957 when the State of Florida Department of Transportation decided to build the Pinellas Bayway consisting of an 8 mile Roadway system and 3 bridges. One bridge to the west linking Isla Del Sol to the Gulf Beaches, one bridge to the south linking Isla to Tierra Verde and the third linking Isla to Mullet Key or Fort DeSoto. This enabled the developer to create our beautiful Island. After the island was finished the City of St. Petersburg Environmental Development Commission approved a site plan for 600 of the then proposed 4300 condominium units. This was eventually scaled back to the 3200 households that the residents of Isla enjoy today. There are no single family homes on Isla Del Sol and the majority are occupied on a seasonal basis.
There are several condominium communities on Isla Del Sol including:
- Vista Verde North,
- Vista Verde East,
- Vista Verde West,
- Bahia Del Mar,
- La Puerta, and
- Casa Del Sol.
