About Madeira Beach

Madeira Beach Florida

 

 Beach Sunset

Small town living with clean beaches is what this city of 5,000 people is noted for.  Their slogan is “Our Beaches are clean and Seafood is fresh”.  Those living in this small town (2 miles long) are within minutes of the beach if they don’t live right on it already.  The main attraction is the unique John Pass Village for your shopping and charter fishing trips.

Legend holds that a pirate named John LeVique was the first European to "settle" the Madeira Beach area. Today, this Gulf of Mexico beach city, just west of St. Petersburg, 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. Madeira's 2.5-mile beach attracts devotees of sun and sea, and fishing in the primary sport activity. More grouper is brought into John's Pass than any other place in the state. 

In addition, each October, the community 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.
