Two months ago, I shared an article that cast some doubt on the future status of Caddy’s on the Beach, located on Treasure Island, Florida, just north of St. Pete Beach. The article not only brought up the possibility that Caddy’s on the Beach might close but that it might disappear completely, with the state taking over the property, razing the structures and turning it into a park.
Luckily for longtime fans of the largest beach bar in the area that can still allow alcohol on the sand, the beach bar not only isn’t going anywhere in the near future, it has new owners who plan on keeping it just the way it is. Partner Berry O’Connor stated “We’re continuing operations; people keep their jobs; people still have their Caddy’s.”

I just hope the new owners will take responsibility for their patrons’ messes and keep our beach and gulf water clean and free of debris. I would spend many mornings volunteering to search for sea turtle nestings and would spend the majority of the morning picking up mounds of litter outside caddy’s so the surrounding habitat would not be affected.
