Madeira Beach Florida
Madeira Beach Florida is a beach town that is primarily residential with little or no industrial or sizable service businesses. With one exception: its main shopping and activities area, John’s Pass. The sea-themed John’s Pass Village and Boardwalk serves up shops and eateries and a 1,100-foot boardwalk along the Intracoastal.
Madeira Beach’s 2.5-mile beach attracts devotees of sun and sea, and fishing in the primary sport activity. More grouper is brought into John’s Pass than any other place in the state, earning it the nickname “Grouper Capital of Florida.” Every October, Madeira Beach hosts the Seafood Festival at John’s Pass, which attracts as many as 130,000 visitors to its celebration of food, music, and arts and crafts.
Madeira Beach Florida is in Pinellas County, on the highly coveted white sand beaches. It’s south of Clearwater, north of St. Pete Beach and west of St. Petersburg. Madeira Beach has a population of approximately 4,400 residents.
