Treasure Island to Pass-a-Grille
Via Electric Scooter
It's 2019. We are packing more power into smaller spaces, and the lithium ion battery in the Xiaomi Mi Scooter will power you up to a speed 15.5 mph and take you a distance of 18 miles, on a single charge. It weighs about 25 pounds and it easily folds in half.
Sunset Beach is at the South end of Treasure Island. You will pass by Caddy's On The Beach. It's a great little restaurant right on the sand. Order some food and dine on the top deck, or reserve some chairs and an umbrella on the beach. Work on your tan for a bit, then hop back on your E Scooter.
Scoot over the bridge to Mastry's. It's a little local brewery located on Blind Pass. Food trucks often park outside so you can grab a bite here too.
Get off of Gulf Blvd. and scoot the side roads toward Upham Beach. Relax in a chair under an umbrella, get in a game of beach volleyball, or cool off in the Gulf. There are restrooms and refreshments at The Paradise Grille.
The Trade Winds Resort in St. Pete Beach is another potential stop on the route. Have you watched the show 'Tanked' on The Discovery Channel? They built an aquarium in Rumfish Grill, one of the resort's restaurants. Check out the YouTube video here. Then check it out in person after you stop by on your E Scooter.
The Undertow provides beach access to a few volleyball courts. If you couldn't find a game at Upham, you can probably find one here.
The iconic hotel is at the North end of Pass-a-Grille. Stop in for a cone of Working Cow ice cream.
Pass a Grille is beautiful. About one mile long and one block wide, it's at the southern end of St. Pete Beach. There are plenty of shops and restaurants, and of course, beautiful beaches. Catch a great view from the rooftop of The Hurricane. Just don't get any food there. You've been warned.
You're at the end of PAG. You can see Shell Key, a small island in the nature preserve. Sign up for a paddleboard or kayak tour with Mad Beach Paddle Sports and we will take you to the private island. Or reserve a boat from Treasure Island Boat Renatls and venture out on your own. They are under new ownership and the new guys are great. Ask for Cameron.
If you haven't had anything to eat yet, or you are determined to be a glutton and order something from every place along the route, Sea Critters is your next stop. With a relaxing atmosphere and outdoor seating along the bay, it's a good place to order an 'almond crusted grouper sandwich.' When you're not traveling on a scooter you can arrive by boat.
You left PAG and now you're in the bike lane traveling North on the East side of Gulf Blvd. Stop at the Polynesian Putter to play some mini golf.
