St Pete Beach

St Pete Beach SunsetThe numbers tell the story of St. Pete Beach: of the some 20 square miles that comprise this barrier island community just a little over 2 square miles is land. The rest is water. Needless to say, this is a paradise for anyone who likes to sail, swim, fish or just enjoy the tranquility of waterfront living.

Don Cesar Pink Palace
Don Cesar — The Pink Palace

Three bridges lead to this beautiful island with its soft white sand beaches, beautiful city parks, and an array of retail, restaurants and hotels that serve residents and accommodate the many visitors who are drawn here. The most famous St. Pete Beach icon is The Don Cesar, Florida’s legendary “Pink Palace” luxury resort and an area landmark for nearly a century.

There are 9,346 people that live year-round in St. Pete Beach according to the 2010 U.S. Census, yet the number of residents doubles in the winter, when seasonal residents from other parts of the U.S., Canada and Europe come to stay. About 28 percent of the homes here are in fact second homes.

Activities

st petersburg beachThe warm Gulf waters and 4 ½ miles of beach afford plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities. But St. Pete Beach also has one of the most active parks and recreation programs anywhere. The Family Aquatic Center is a popular destination for locals, and offers classes and swim teams along with the opportunity to just relax around the pool. Residents might partake in a painting class at the Cultural Arts Center or a hip hop class at the Community Center. Sports leagues are popular among adults and kids.

Special Time

Every April people from all over the county come to St. Pete Beach for the Beach Goes Pops  event on Pass-a-Grill Beach. It’s free to the public with jazz on Friday and full orchestra pops on Saturday. In November the city puts on the Annual Fish Broil and Auction which started in the 1930s as a way to raise money for schools.  This popular event features mullet charcoaled over open pits.

“St. Pete Beach is an island, a small place that’s not going to get any bigger. Those of us who live here love it and feel fortunate to be a part of it. Truth be known, I hate leaving the island for anything.”Danny Walker, resident since 1973.
