Madeira Beach

During a hurricane September 27, 1848, a section of the mainland in Pinellas County along the coastline was flooded and an island was formed. This island became known as Madeira Beach. The section of water between the island and the mainland became known as John's Pass, after the legendary pirate John LeVeque who was said to have discovered it. (See article elsewhere on this site). Madeira Beach is a two mile stretch lying between Clearwater and St. Petersburg Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. It is legendary for it's sandy white beaches and clean streets. Anything one could ask for is there..dining, fishing, shopping, recreation and more. If you like the night life then you will love Madeira Beach with it's many clubs and lounges.
