Pass-A-Grille is a small-scale beach community at the southern end of St. Pete Beach, Florida. If you are used to a place like Clearwater Beach, Pass-A-Grille may seem "quaint." If you are used to a place like Anna Maria Island, Pass-A-Grille will seem somewhat familiar, but not exactly the same.
Pass-A-Grille locals are easily overwhelmed by the population of visitors on almost any day. It's such a small community--only 22 short blocks long and one block wide from bay to Gulf. The entire length of Pass-A-Grille offers metered beach parking and boardwalks across the dunes to the beach.
A snack bar and local restaurants keep the visitors from getting hungry or thirsty and wandering back north to St. Pete Beach and all its commercial glory. There's a rock fishing jetty on the Gulf, a fishing pier on the bay, and stand-up paddleboard and bike rentals for anyone interested.
There are no big resorts or chain hotels in Pass-A-Grille; only mom & pop style one or two-level hotels. There are no buildings directly on the beach; all are across the narrow street and have a great view of the dunes and Gulf.
