Gulf Boulevard is the main drag from Clearwater to St Petersburg. Motorcycles love to roar up and down it all night long! There are also lots of firestations in the area and they also seemed to have runs all day and night. Personally I prefer a much quieter beach!!

I have not been to this beach in years. It was a great surprise to see how clean the beach itself was. The restaurant snack shack had many options. The service itself was not good but the set up was nice with plenty of seating with umbrellas. They rent chairs and umbrellas from a great employee who is extremely nice... More

We loved this beach! We came here two days in a row. There are places more populated that have the umbrella rental stuff or you can go off in a less crowded area. There are some beach areas that don't allow alcohol so beware! This location allowed alcohol. Some parking lots charge to park, pay attention to the signs. Enjoy!

This is such a lovely, well maintained beach that my husband and I longed to visit it again and again. Easy parking lots make access to the beach easy, but arrive early (before 11am) to get a spot or you may be waiting a bit or walking further than you hoped.

Great efficiency condo and great ocean view. Place was not cleaned well at all. My wife cleaned thoroughly on the second day of the trip. Very disappointed in cleanliness, especially at a nice condo resort. Everything else was great. Instructions for check-in were spot on. We were not so impressed with the office gal, she was just matter-of-fact attitude. She... More

This beach is wonderful! Wonderful, warm, gulf waters. Shells are fun to find. We stayed right in the middle of Madeira Beach and it was not too crowded. We stayed at the Sea Breeze and could walk to John's Pass easily. We weren't so impressed with the southern end of the beach (down by John's Pass). It was more crowded... More
