Madeira Beach & John's Pass
Bus Trips from The Villages
Grouper Capital of the World, Mad Beach, or just Madeira Beach—whatever you call this beautiful Gulf-side getaway, you won’t have any trouble finding sun, fun and delectable seafood.
This barrier island community is what you get when you cross an Old Florida fishing village with a lively (but not rowdy) beach town. In fact, Madeira Beach was named the No. 9 Beach in the U.S. by Tripadvisor for 2021. Known locally as “Mad Beach,” it’s where Florida’s largest grouper catch comes into dock. It’s also home to one of St. Pete/Clearwater’s biggest family attractions, John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk.
Head to the pristine two-mile long stretch of “Mad Beach" - the perfect beach escape. Take the Tom Stuart Causeway, an impressive bridge with great views, to this bustling beach. Discover historic John's Pass Village & Boardwalk, which is buzzing with more than 100 shops and restaurants in an Old Florida-style waterfront atmosphere. Explore the surf shops and art galleries, then enjoy fresh seafood along the boardwalk at the Friendly Fisherman or Sculley’s.
Also available is a dolphin boat ride for an additional $16.00 per person. This Dolphin Watch is an exciting 1.5 hour tour where you watch them swim and jump and entertain you.
