As you can see from all the responses it all depends on YOU and your family's needs and wants. Are you looking for a vacation home or a permanent residence? Are Schools a consideration? Work commute time? Price range and size? There are a lot of questions to help find you the right match. Often people start out with one concept of what they want and after talking and looking what they end up wanting and getting may be quite different.
My suggestion would be to interview full time professional realtors to find one you are comfortable with and then have a consultation regarding your wants and needs so that they can customize you search and hone in on the right property.
I feel an informed client makes the best decisions regarding their real estate needs. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

The St. Pete Beach and Pass-A-Grille areas are awesome! Vina Del Mar is just south, and the Isla Del Sol and Tierra Verde areas are great, too. It really depends upon your needs. If you love the beach and want to be near the sand, you will need to decide on condominium vs. single family. If you choose to purchase a single family home, you need to consider its use. Is it a get-away vacation home or will it be a permanent residence? You'll want to consider price, as well. Treasure Island has some wonderful buys right now and going north, Madeira Beach, Redington, and Indian Shores are communities to consider.
Enjoy your search for the perfect place for you!
There are many places that you could live that are close to the beach. Even if you lived on the bay side, you could get to the beach in about 20-25 minutes even at it's widest point. Some of my best pick neighborhoods near the beach but on the mainland side would be Seminole and Belleair. The Old Northeast just north of downtown St Petersburg if you like more urban living. Downtown St Pete is really nice now. Of course you have many communities all along the barrier islands next to the beach up and down Pinellas County along Gulf Blvd. For about a minimum of $450k, you could find a decent house on the water. Tierra Verde would also be a pick for a great neighborhood close to the beach and right near the Don Cesar. Call me, I would love to help you.
