Madeira Beach, Florida: Family-Friendly Beaches Along the Gulf of Mexico
Legend has it that a pirate named John LeVique was the first European to set foot on the barrier island now known as Madeira Beach—a family-friendly spot southwest of Tampa. The town pays homage to that first swashbuckler with John’s Pass, a historic fishing village and boardwalk lined with waterfront restaurants and shops. Madeira Beach’s location along the Gulf of Mexico means you can swim in warm, calm waters for much of the year. Just a few miles to the south, you’ll find the sandy shores of St. Pete Beach, dubbed one of the Top 10 Beach Towns for Families by Parents magazine in 2013.
