St. Pete Beach is a coastal city in Pinellas County , Florida. It is famous for its status as a tourist destination. St. Pete Beach was formed from the towns of Pass-A-Grill, Belle Vista, St. Petersburg Beach and unincorporated Pinellas County. For many years it called St. Petersburg Beach but the name change by voters shorten it to St. Pete Beach. This is a wonderful Gulf Beach area to visit. We love the Morean Art Center which features the Chihula Collection of blown glass.
