Treasure Island is a small Florida resort city on a barrier island, west of St. Petersburg. Its name is rooted in a 1915 marketing ploy, where several property owners pretended to find buried wooden chests to entice visitors and those bound for a Florida vacation. News of the discovery spread quickly, and people began calling the area Treasure Island. Today, the real treasure is the town’s classic, laid-back beach vibe.
This area has a lot to offer – swimming, shell finding, sunning, snorkeling, parasailing or simply walking the 3 mile stretch of beach. Catch the sunset at the “world’s longest waterfront bar,” Gators Cafe & Saloon. This multi-level entertainment hub has everything from a tasting room to a tiki lounge, not to mention, it’s accessible by boat!
Whether it’s indoor activities such as visiting nearby museums, outdoor activities like kayaking and jet skiing or walking around local art districts – you’re destined to have a good time!
Established in 1945, the picturesque town of Redington Beach is a residential community made up primarily of single-family homes. An eclectic combination of beach bungalows and more modern Florida-style houses alternate throughout the quiet, breezy streets, while low-rise condominiums are sprinkled up and down the gulf’s famous white-sand coast.
Redington Beach offers the best of both worlds: the charm of cozy small-town life along with the convenience of being surrounded by several larger cities including St. Petersburg along with Clearwater to the north, Tampa to the east and Sarasota to the south. The town is located mere miles from the best shopping and dining hubs in the South Florida area, and Tampa International Airport is only a short drive away.
Madeira Beach is located on the Gulf of Mexico, south of Redington Beach, north of Treasure Island and west of downtown St. Petersburg. The area is primarily residential with little or no industrial or sizable service businesses.
Madeira Beach is best known for the sea-themed John’s Pass Village and Boardwalk, which serves up shops and eateries and a 1,100-foot boardwalk along the Intracoastal. The 2.5-mile beach attracts devotees of sun and sea. Fishing is the primary sports activity. More grouper is brought into John’s Pass than any other place in the state. Every October, Madeira Beach hosts the Seafood Festival at John’s Pass, which attracts as many as 130,000 visitors to its celebration of food, music, and arts and crafts.
Madeira Beach creates the perfect escape to paradise! You won’t have any trouble finding sun, fun and delectable seafood.
Indian Rocks Beach
Indian Rocks Beach is part of the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL Metro Area. It offers nearly three miles of beautiful and accessible beaches along the Gulf of Mexico. Indian Rocks Beach contains many waterfront properties facing either the Gulf or the Intracoastal Waterway. At some points along this narrow piece of land, you can even view both bodies of water. It is a quiet town, initially developed in the 1920s as a weekend getaway destination for wealthy inland Florida residents. Today, Indian Rocks Beach is a thriving community that has maintained most of its original character and supports a lively mixture of recreational activities. With gorgeous white-sand beaches, locally-owned eateries and shops, quaint attractions and a warm sense of community among the residents – it’s a top destination to visit or call home!
