“One of the best-kept secrets on the beach, you will not find a better breakfast place than here. It is located in Pass-a-grille, which physically the same beach as St. Pete, but likes to separate itself with a name change. It is a 10-minute drive south. It is also extremely affordable which is always nice when eating out. ”

Seafood Restaurant

“This is listed as sightseeing because this is my favorite beach "Pass A Grille" to watch the sunset at. You can order drinks in styrofoam cups at the Brass Monkey to take to the beach or you can get there early enough to get a second level seat to watch the sunset. Brass Monkey is dog-friendly on the 2nd-floor patio and has the best crab cakes in Pinellas. ”

Island
“Located in Pass-A-Grille, about 2 miles South on Gulf Blvd, on the Bay Side, you can book a Nice trip with an experienced captain. They were knowledgeable about Shell Key and prompt with departure and arrival to bring our party back. I felt that the value was also good. They provide beach umbrellas and snorkels if you need. You will able to find lots of pretty shells not too far from the drop off/ pick up location. Kids are half price of adults which is a plus for our family.”
