It's Beautiful On Top Of St Pete Pier

Cha Cha Coconuts gives you a view that is unrivaled

On top of St Pete Pier, from Cha Cha Coconuts, you have an unrivaled view of downtown St Pete and Tampa Bay.

After taking a few shots of St Pete Pier from Demens Landing Park, I had a strong urge for a grilled chicken sandwich and a beer up on the rooftop bar...Cha Cha Coconuts.

I love it up there. You get a seagull's eye view of downtown St Petersburg FL and expansive Tampa Bay.

The lunch time crowd is not near as heavy as dinner at Cha Cha Coconuts. You have the opportunity to walk around without interfering in someone's conversation, or obstructing their view.

July, August, and September can be a bit a tough because of the heat. It's much better after the sun goes down in those summer months.

However, the other nine months make you thankful to live here in Paradise. It is cool, sunny, and clear. You can see all the way to Gandy Bridge and the edge of downtown Tampa when you look northeast across the Bay.

As you can see, the covered patio is totally bare during the early lunch hour. There was just one other guy, besides me, on top here.

The ever-popular Pier Bait House looks small and lonely from up here. You can get sandwiches down there...and feed fish to the pelicans at the same time.

When I finally got back to the beginning, I got this nice shot of the Pier Trolly that takes passengers back and forth from the two parking lots about a quarter of mile away.
