Welcome to Shore Acres

An island oasis close to the amenities of the city.
A large island neighborhood cut through with canals, Shore Acres is home to winding roads, waterfront views, and ample recreation. Many homes have private docks along the waterfront, giving boaters easy access to the Bay. Its luxurious paradise feel is belied by its convenient location — it’s just a short drive from Downtown St. Petersburg. With this mix of atmosphere and location, Shore Acres offers its residents the best of everything.
A pine grove and a marsh made the perfect foundation for what would become one of St. Petersburg’s nicest neighborhoods. It was developed in the mid-20th century as an idyllic island paradise, and it continues to be a luxurious waterfront community beloved by those who live there.
Stunning waterfront homes reign supreme in Shore Acres. With private docks and glorious pools, these residences may range in size and style, but they all glory in their location. There are many beautiful homes along the landlocked streets, but those looking for waterfront property have plenty to choose from both Bayside and on one of Shore Acres’ many canals.

What to Love

  • Gorgeous waterfront estates
  • Boaters’ paradise
  • Close to Downtown St. Petersburg

Local Lifestyle

Boaters and recreationists love Shore Acres for its waterfront convenience, and those who enjoy walking or running through the neighborhood will find plenty of space to do that in this large community. It’s close to some of the most exciting amenities of St. Petersburg while still maintaining its idyllic island charm. Shore Acres is full of vibrant life with a delicious splash of luxury.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

Not far from the quiet residential area that makes up Shore Acres, residents can enjoy the expansive options of 4th Street shopping and dining. 
In Historic Old Northeast, the 4th Street Shrimp Store is a decades-old local favorite with a casual, funky atmosphere and fresh seafood offerings. Enjoy a leisurely dinner on the wraparound porch of the converted farmhouse that houses Three Birds Tavern. Up 4th Street, enjoy handcrafted sangrias and upscale Mexican fare at Red Mesa Restaurant.
While there’s a small neighborhood grocery store on the island, most Shore Acres shopping happens off the island. There are a handful of boutiques along 4th Street, such as Marion’s, but a short drive down the shore will bring you to the exciting shopping of Downtown St. Petersburg. Trendy boutiques like Shoreline Sugars and shopping centers like The Mall at Sundial ensure there’s retail therapy for everyone.

Things to Do

With easy access to the Bay, Shore Acres is a boater’s paradise. Spend a day out on the water or sail up to the lush nature of Weedon Island Preserve. Boaters will also love the St. Petersburg Yacht Club’s marina, located right here in Snell Isle. There are plenty of bike paths for easy outdoor recreation.
There’s also plenty to do on land in this beautiful neighborhood. Shore Acres Recreation Center is home to a six-lane swimming pool, basketball and pickleball courts, and numerous community programs. It also has an outdoor playground and picnic areas scattered across the grounds. For golf enthusiasts, Shore Acres is set between The Vinoy Golf Club and Mangrove Bay and Cypress Links Golf Courses.
Get outdoors in the expansive greenspace of Denver Park. Perfect for picnics or a friendly game of basketball, this is a quintessential neighborhood park. Shore Acres is also home to Arrowhead Park, a small, residential green space full of benches and trees.


Shore Acres is served by Pinellas County Schools, which has one of the highest graduation rates in the state and is home to many nationally recognized arts, music, STEM, and athletic programs.
