Your guide to Madeira Beach
All About Madeira Beach
The warm, breezy conditions off the coast of Madeira Beach draw in parasailing enthusiasts from near and far. Life here revolves around the water, with marinas teeming with boats of all shapes and sizes and locals heading off into the Gulf of Mexico for a leisurely day of fishing. This buzzing city midway down Florida’s west coast is home to soft white sands, an abundance of golf courses, and galleries showcasing local maritime-inspired artwork. Hop on the vintage-style Jolley Trolley to nearby John’s Pass Boardwalk for a stroll among its colorful surf shops.
Waterfront eateries serve up fresh local seafood, and live music performances add to the laid-back vibe. The fun carries on after dark, with tiki bars providing plenty of places to sip beverages with views of the Intracoastal Waterway. At just two miles wide, Madeira Beach combines easy access to the performing arts centers and museums of Tampa, the dense mangroves of Fort De Soto Park, and the crystal waters on its doorstep.
The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Madeira Beach
The best time to visit Madeira Beach rentals is from October until March, when temperatures are pleasant, remaining in the 80s Fahrenheit, and there is limited rainfall. Summer in Madeira Beach draws lots of people to the beach, but conditions can be quite humid. The area’s biggest event is the annual John’s Pass Seafood Festival in January, which has been going for more than 40 years. Nearby Clearwater hosts a jazz fest in October. Every March, Clearwater hosts car races in the streets of St. Petersburg and Palm Harbor. You can rent go-karts and try racing through the streets on a professional racecourse. April brings a blues festival in nearby St. Petersburg, which also hosts Pride Fest, Florida’s largest LGBTQ celebration, in June.

Additionally, every night at sunset, Pier 60 hosts a festival with street performers and craft vendors.
Late winter and early spring offer baseball fans the prized opportunity to visit some well-known teams holding their spring training in the area. Two teams from the northern states and one from Canada all train within minutes of Madeira Beach. Baseball’s regular season runs from March to October.
