At the southern tip of St. Pete Beach (past the Don Cesar), this is the epitome of Old Florida. One of the most popular beaches in the area, it skirts the west end of charming, historic Pass-a-Grille, a neighborhood that draws tourists and locals alike with its stylish yet low-key mom-and-pop motels and restaurants. On weekends, check out the Art Mart, an open-air market off the boulevard between 9th and 10th avenues that showcases the work of local artisans. Amenities:
food and drink; parking; showers; toilets. Best for: sunset; windsurfing.

we love love love Pass-a-Grille. It is not commercialized. There is literally nothing built up on the beach. We've stayed at a great little place there facing the beach that actually has free bicycles for the guests to use so you never have to use your car.

Arguably the best beach in Pinellas County, in a pleasant residential area. Great to walk or just lie out and sun. Parking is not free, but it's comparatively easy to find.
