There are many things to do in St Pete Beach and a day at the beach should be #1. Take advantage of Upham Beach’s prime sand and build a sandcastle, play a friendly game of sand volleyball, and visit the local favorite Paradise Grille.

Build an Admirable Sandcastle

There are dozens of methods for building a sandcastle. Here are some sandcastle-building basics for those new to the craft:

  1. Always use moist sand. You’ll find damp sand below the tide line.
  2. Work from top to bottom, this lessens the chance of a collapse.
  3. Shave and carve sand away in thin layers. It’s always easier to take then add sand.
  4. Bring the right tools: mini shovel, funnel, putty knife, and five-gallon buckets
  5. Use a lot of water. Add water to the castle early and often.
  6. Dig a self-replenishing waterhole.

Ace! Upham Beach Sand Volleyball

Upham Beach is home to, arguably, the best sand volleyball courts in St Pete Beach. With four top-of-the-line nets, this sandy beach is ideal for groups, reunions, and families looking for a friendly (or perhaps intense) game of sand volleyball. The nets are sturdy, the views are spectacular, and you’re always within steps of Caprice Resort and our breathtaking pool. In-between matches, splash in the Gulf of Mexico or slip over the Paradise Grille, the area’s premier sandbar. There’s no shortage of things to do in St Pete Beach!

Paradise Grille: Tasty Grub and Cold Beer

The recipes are simple, the beer is cheap, the shade is plentiful, and the Gulf of Mexico vistas are stupendous. Paradise Grille is an unpretentious sandbar with friendly waitstaff, unbeatable prices, juicy burgers, and surprisingly scrumptious omelets. Don’t expect a five-star experience–Paradise Grille offers tasty back-to-the-basics meals on styrofoam plates. Wait until you try their blackened shrimp omelet, crab cake sandwich, and half-pound burgers. A bucket of cold beer is just the icing on the cake.
