St Pete Beach
The City of St. Pete Beach is a barrier island community located just off the Pinellas County mainland of St. 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 10,032, but is also a popular winter residence for people living in other parts of the United States, Canada, and Europe. Nearly 28 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.
The city was incorporated in 1957 with the consolidation of the Town of Pass-a-Grille, Don Cesar, Belle Vista, St. Petersburg Beach and unincorporated Pinellas County to become the “City of St. Petersburg Beach.” 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, our 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.
