Travelling to Madeira Beach, Florida
Located on Central Florida’s West coast between Clearwater and St. Petersburg, Madeira Beach is a quaint, turn-of-the-century fishing village with vacation rentals to suit every style and budget.
The Gulf of Mexico waterfront city is home to over four kilometres of white sand beaches, warm turquoise waters, and shaded picnic areas, which appeal to swimmers, sunbathers, and beachcombers. Pier and deep-sea fishing are popular here, as are boating, parasailing, and jet skiing. The community is also home to the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary—the largest non-profit wild bird hospital and sanctuary in the country, and one of the world’s top avian rehabilitation centres.
Madeira Beach is best known for its sea-themed John’s Pass Village and Boardwalk, a bustling 335-metre walkway along the Intracoastal Waterway that features eateries, shops, the local fishing fleet, boat rentals, and dolphin watching and shelling tours. The city hosts annual events that appeal to locals and visitors alike, including the Seafood Festival and the John Levique Pirate Days Festival, a celebration of Madeira Beach’s founder, the pirate John Levique.
Madeira Beach offers a vast array of natural, outdoors, and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is less than a thirty minutes’ drive from St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport.
