About Madeira Beach, Tampabay Florida
Yes, another barrier Island in Pinellas County. Right in the middle between Treasure Island and Redington beach
Madeira beach is a little different than the other beach communities
Locals call it “A little fishing town with a drinking problem” The first part is correct the second part is not anymore. A lot of people lovingly also call it “MAD beach”
Madeira beach has changed. Years ago it was all about fishing and drinking, nowadays it is a combination of fishing and tourism.
One of the biggest attractions for visitors to our general area of St. Petersburg Clearwater is John’s Pass in Madeira beach.
It is a long board walk right on the water overlooking John’s Pass Bridge, with lots of shops and restaurants and bars and gift stores. You can spend a whole day and even for locals we feel like we are on vacation when we go to John’s Pass (I do this often since my office is in Madeira beach) It is just wonderful, you can rent a boat or jet ski, or go out on a fishing trip or take a gambling cruise, it is all right there in the Pass.
Madeira beach verses St Pete Beach hardly has any hotel rooms, but lots of condos and houses that you can rent for a couple of days or even months.
When it comes to fish, Madeira beach is it. We have a lot of fishing boats go out of Madeira on one day trip or even 3 week trip, commercial and recreational fishing is the big thing here and this makes Madeira somehow different than the other barrier Islands.
It has the same beautiful beaches, great restaurant, you have to go to the Beach Bistro, wonderful French cuisine or the little mom and pop place called Mario’s, incredible Italian food, prepared right in front of you. If you are in a steak mood try Leatherbacks or for local food go to the Hut. The daiquiri deck offer live music and soon (Jan 2008) we will have a Baba Gump Shrimp restaurant.
Real Estate is still affordable; right now we feature a one bedroom one bath condo hotel unit that sleeps 5 people for $115,000
You can not beat this price. Do the numbers, it is a great investment and rental property and it is located right on Gulf Blvd. just walk across the street and your feet are on the sandy beach.
