Madeira Beach

This barrier island community is what you get when you cross an Old Florida fishing village with a lively (but not rowdy) beach town. In fact, Madeira Beach was named the No. 9 Beach in the U.S. by Tripadvisor for 2021. 

Fun Things to Do

Relax, stroll and swim along 2.5 miles of beautiful beaches, or check out Mad Beach’s rocky southern point, a popular spot for shore fishing.

Save a day or more to explore John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk, a rustic waterfront complex with over 100 shops, restaurants and water recreation businesses. From John’s Pass, catch a dolphin cruise or pirate-themed cruise, rent a boat or jet-ski, or even hop on a floating tiki bar.
