Madeira Beach

Madeira Beach Condos

Madeira Beach, or Mad Beach as it is dubbed by locals, is located on the barrier island beaches half way between Clearwater Beach and St. Petersburg Beach. It offers a broader and quieter beach than most others located in Pinellas County and is known for its stupendous surf. While the west coast of Florida isn’t known for great surfing conditions, Madeira Beach’s unique location and shallow waters provide for an interesting current and tidal flow, making the beach community one of the prime body or board surfing destinations on the Suncoast.

While the beach is less crowded than most others in the county, it is a favorite destination of college students during Spring Break and vacationers alike. The community boasts a healthy population of condominiums, hotels, vacation rentals and seasonal rentals with direct access to the beach. A pedestrian-friendly community, the condos, beach villas and vacation rentals located in Madeira Beach not providing a direct beach access are all within walking distance of the sand and surf.

Madeira Beach’s recreation center offers a myriad of activities for children of both locals and tourists alike. Arts and crafts, games, field trips and more are provided. Basketball, soccer, T Ball, softball, Gulf Beach Little League baseball and cheerleading are but a few of the sports offered by the community. Madeira Beach also offers tennis, shuffleboard and basketball courts, all of which are open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.

Searching for that perfect Florida memory to last a lifetime? Try a picnic by the sea. Catch your own seafood dinner from one of the many seawalls located both on the Gulf and the Intracoastal Waterway then utilize one or both of the barbecue grills located at the pavilion overlooking the sparkling waters of the Gulf to grill your fresh catch. A playground is provided for younger guests.

Searching for an activity less serene, something capable of providing more adrenaline? One of the favorite pastimes of visitors to Madeira Beach is renting a scooter from one of the local scooter dealers. Florida law permits any adult with a regular driver’s license to rent a scooter with an engine displacement of 50cc or less. Averaging 80-100 miles per gallon, the small scooters are an ideal and economic mode of transportation of which to explore the barrier island beaches and communities. The speed limit along Gulf Blvd., the main thoroughfare bisecting the beach communities, rarely exceeds that of 30 mph and Florida has no helmet law, allowing one to fully experience and savor the sight, sounds and smell of the beaches and salty air wafting in off the Gulf of Mexico.

Shopaholics can rejoice as Madeira Beach is close to John’s Pass, a shopping and dining extravaganza perched along the Intracoastal Waterway inlet leading to the Gulf. John’s Pass also offers a Gulf sunset and dinner cruises, dolphin watch cruises, deep-sea fishing excursions and more.

Madeira Beach makes for the perfect vacation destination. Clean streets, friendly people and southern hospitality combined with the beach-side condos, vacation rentals, cottages, waterfront villas and other accommodations make Madeira Beach a prime destination whether for a visit or to call home.
