St Pete Beach is a historic place. Its most southern tip is called Pass-A-Grill and was named after the Cuban fishermen because as they were smoking their fish at the beach before they return to Cuba they were heard saying: pass- a- grill which meant: give me the next grill to put more fish!

Slowly the area started to be inhabited, the newcomer residents adapted and used the name Pass-A-Grill. Then in 1905 Pass-A-Grill got its own Post Office. It was officially declared a town by State Legislation in 1911 counting 21 residents and had their first election. Then electricity came to Long Key Island (St Pete Beach) in 1914 and finally in 1922 the first fire station of the area and it was called Pass-A-Grill Engine Number One.

At a time, Long Key Island had four different communities: Pass-A-Grill, Don CeSar, Belle Vista Beach and St Petersburg Beach. Then in 1957 these four communities decided to merge and form a town which they named the City of St Petersburg Beach due to their proximity to the Town of St Petersburg. But a few years down the road they decided that they wanted to have their own identity so the residents voted to shorten the name to St Pete Beach!
