When I stumbled upon Pass-a-Grille, the southernmost, quaint resort town on the St. Pete Beach stretch of white sandy beaches, little did I know that TripAdvisor.com had voted it the #1 attraction in the St. Pete area. But after spending some time at Pass-a-Grille Beach, I’m not surprised. This little piece of paradise is the perfect spot to unwind, relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery. And if you are more the “get-up-and-go” type, there are also plenty of things to do in this vibrant community. There are galleries and shops to explore, a variety of restaurants, fishing, beach combing, peaceful walks, and just about every other type of beach activity you can imagine. It’s also quite common to see dolphins frolicking about; I was told that the area has sightings on a nearly daily basis.
One of the most impressive things about Pass-a-Grille, and something definitely not to be missed, are the spectacular sunsets! One experience of the magnificent colors painting the sky as the sun descends and you’ll know why St. Pete Beach is known as the Sunset Capital of Florida! You can get nice views of the sunset on both the Gulf side and the Intercoastal waterway. If you are on the gulf side, the best vantage point is at Paradise Grill. And while you are there, you should stop in – the food and service are both quite good. Plus a lot of locals eat there, which is usually a good sign!
