Home to 2 Superior Small Lodging™ —
Madeira Beach has two extraordinary options, one of which is for the over 21 crowd:
— Shoreline Island Resort (21+ only)
Madeira Beach – known as the beach city that is “two miles long and a smile wide” – is a laid-back island community, best known for Johns Pass and Johns Pass Village. “The Pass’ is a waterway that leads to the Gulf of Mexico from Boca Ciega Bay. It is used by boaters up and down the barrier islands as well as commercial boats. And, for all who visit, they should know that “The Pass” is home to about 250 friendly dolphins, according to local marine biologists!
Johns Pass Village, named for the pirate – John Leveque – was a fishing village in earlier days. It now is home to restaurants, shopping and water-related adventures for locals and visitors alike.
- Dining choices are many and most offer a water view.
- A craft brewery has just opened, offering a new ‘taste’ to the area.
- If you are a shopper, you’ll find shops galore. There is everything from jewelry, and clothing, to cigars, and kites, to homemade ice cream.
For those who like to be on the water, choices include boat rentals, deep sea fishing, a pirate cruise, para-sailing, dolphin watch cruises, shelling cruises, and more. And, for boat owners new to the area, fuels, snacks and assistance are available right in “The Pass” itself.
