St. Petersburg Beaches


If St. Petersburg, Florida is known for just one thing it’s our beaches – nearly 20 miles of sun, sand, and Florida living at its finest!

St. Petersburg’s beaches stretch from Indian Rocks Beach in the north to Pass-a-Grille Beach in the south and contain a diverse mix of residential and retail on barrier islands and the Pinellas peninsula proper. Whether you’re seeking an upscale, five-bedroom single family home with killer sunset views, a one-bedroom get-away condo on the Intracoastal Waterway, or something in between, the nine beaches here surely have something for you.

From north to south these nine beaches are Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores, Reddington Shores, North Reddington Beach, Reddington Beach, Madeira Beach, Treasure Island, St. Pete Beach, and Pass-a-Grille. The north beaches – Indian Rocks through Reddington – are best accessed by traveling west along Park Boulevard North. Madeira Beach is just a hop, skip, and jump from St. Petersburg going out Bay Pines Boulevard and across the Tom Stuart Causeway. And the southern beaches – Treasure Island through Pass-a-Grille – are reached either via Central Avenue West, by driving southeast on Pasadena Avenue, or via a scenic drive across the Pinellas Bayway (portions toll road).

Since so many neighborhoods lie within these roughly ten square miles all types of real estate are on offer: gated enclaves, deed restricted communities, single- and multi-family homes, condominiums, and locations both with and without water access. Because all share immediate access to Pinellas County’s beaches all homes on the beaches, which range in price from about $150,000 to $1.5 million, do require flood insurance. The histories and architectural styles are similarly varied, with Pass-a-Grille dating back to the 1850s and more northern areas containing homes from the 1950s through brand new construction.

Some of Florida’s best attractions share these beaches – places like the fabled Don Cesar Resort, John’s Pass Village, county parks, restaurants and shopping galore, and plenty of hotels and resorts for your out-of-town guests.
