Though officially part of St. Pete Beach, Pass-a-Grille begins where Gulf Boulevard passes The Don CeSar. This is where you’ll kick back in the vibe of those groovy, Old Florida beaches.There’s plenty you won’t find here—high-rises, crowds, shopping malls. What you will find is four miles of undeveloped, public Gulf Coast beaches along Gulf Way wrapped around the end of the key to meet Boca Ciega Bay on the harbor side. Go on a shelling or snorkeling excursion to Shell Key, an uninhabited barrier island, or watch the dolphins play and enjoy gentle sea breezes on a sunset cruise.
Eighth Avenue is where you’ll putter around small galleries, boutiques and restaurants, including the rooftop bar at Hurricane Seafood Restaurant, a famous place to savor a drink along with the area’s spectacular sunsets.
