Top Things to Do in Treasure Island
If you can plan your visit to include a Sunday evening, you won't want to miss the sunset drum circle on the beach behind the Bilmar Beach Resort. It draws locals and visitors alike to experience a surreal sound: the blending of waves and drumming. And speaking of surreal, Sanding Ovations, a yearly sand-sculpting competition, brings professional sand-sculptors to the island in November to create massive, otherworldly masterpieces in the sand.
While most of Treasure Island is residential, you’ll find some good souvenir shopping at Sun Coast Surf Shop, Vine ‘n’ Grind and, of course, the legendary Florida Shell Shop. Get all your beach essentials – sunblock, boogie boards, coolers and the like – at Surf Style.
