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.

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

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
