Lay of the Land: Nestled on Long Key, St. Pete Beach offers accommodations ranging from world-renowned resorts to mom-and-pop motels, to quaint bed and breakfasts. Upham Beach, located on the northern tip of St. Pete Beach, is one of the few spots along the Gulf of Mexico known for surfing. Playground and showers available.

Little Known Facts: St. Pete Beach was originally made up of four areas: Pass-A-Grille Beach, Don CeSar Place, Belle Vista Beach and St. Petersburg Beach. In 1957, the four communities merged into the City of St. Petersburg Beach. Later the City voted to shorten its name to St. Pete Beach.

Why You Should Go: Voted TripAdvisor's number 1 Beach in the U.S. and number 5 in the world in 2012, based on millions of reviews and opinion from travelers around the world, St. Pete Beach has so many activities that you may never leave the island! Spend the day shopping on historic Corey Avenue, dine at a waterfront restaurant, or spend the day skim boarding. No visit would be complete without visiting the Don CeSar Beach Resort. Built during the Jazz Age, the Don has hosted many famous celebrities and has been a beacon of the beach for more than 80 years.

“Our favorite beach!”

The beach is gorgeous. We love the white sand and the blue waters! Several seafood restaurants in the area to choose from. The direct beach access at our hotel was accommodating and convenient.
