Close your eyes and imagine crystal turquoise water, dolphins, manatees, and fish galore, water as warm as your bathtub, and pristine sugar-white sand. If those things sound fantastic, you’re in the right place. Madeira Beach, Florida is located on the gorgeous Gulf Coast of Florida and if you need a spot for your next beach vacation, this is it.
While there are hotels in Madeira Beach and the surrounding areas, renting vacation condos is how you really get the best beach experience. Finding one right on the beach or within walking distance of the beach is ideal. Read on for 5 benefits of renting a condo in Madeira Beach.
Whether you want to lounge on the 2.5 miles of pristine Gulf beaches, take a jet ski out for a spin, or charter a fishing boat, the weather will most often cooperate. While it’s true that Florida is pretty hot and humid in the summer, January, February, and March are perfect months for visiting.
Florida winters are mild, the water stays relatively warm, and the sun shines a lot (they call Florida the Sunshine State for a reason!). Summer is the rainy season, but even that usually means a quick 10 to 20-minute downpour to cool things off and then the sun comes back out.
Madiera Beach is home to John’s Pass Village, which has over 100 different shops (with everything from cheesy souvenir shops to art galleries), restaurants, and a 1,100 foot boardwalk. Spend some time walking around, wandering in and out of the shops, and stopping for a craft beer at Mad Beach Brewing or a homemade ice cream cone at Haze Ice Cream.
Fishing abounds in Madeira Beach, and fishers in the area bring in more grouper than in any other place in the state of Florida. If you find yourself in Madeira Beach in October, make sure you check out the John’s Pass Seafood Festival for food, arts and crafts, live music, and more.
If being out on the water is your thing, you can take a pirate cruise, a dolphin cruise, or simply rent a boat to head out into the gulf on your own. Or, take a day trip up to Tampa to check out Busch Gardens, the aquarium, Tampa Zoo, or catch a Rays, Bucs, or Lightning game.
There is no shortage of things to do in Mad Beach!
Madeira Beach is a cross between an old fishing town and a more modern family destination. It’s not a party beach town like you might find in Clearwater or St. Pete to the north. Rather, it’s the type of place where you find yourself coming back year after year.
While there’s plenty to do, it’s also a great choice for a quiet, relaxing family vacation.
If we’ve convinced you that Madeira Beach is it for your next vacation, you should consider booking a vacation condo. Renting vacation condos allows you to have plenty of space to enjoy your trip as well as amenities to make it feel like home, such as living space, a kitchen, and beach supplies.
