Gulf Boulevard… Belleair Beach
Traveling south and just past the stately ‘condo corridor’ of Sand Key is the upscale residential community of Belleair Beach. With a population of approx. 1650 full time residents, Belleair Beach exudes a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere providing all the advantages of waterfront living and the charm of an old-fashioned neighborhood. Belleair Beach’s residents are proud to have preserved one of the last strictly residential beach communities in Pinellas County. The City of Belleair Beach, chartered in 1950 is located in west-central Pinellas County. This lovely town is situated on a barrier island and serves as the home to a variety of families including those with children, empty-nesters, retirees, and seasonal residents.
Within a short distance, residents and visitors can enjoy world class shopping, professional sporting events, dining, entertainment, and easy access to several international air & sea ports. The City’s 4,500 feet of white sandy beach may be accessed through the City’s four (4) beach accesses, and three (3) resident-only beach parking areas, and Morgan Park. For those seeking park experiences, the City maintains eleven public parks including Morgan Park, Bayside Park, and Crossman Park.
