Sunny, sandy Madeira Beach, Florida, is widely known for its eclectic mix of eateries, aquatic adventures, and boutiques, many of which are located at John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk. John’s Pass is an extravagant, delightfully touristy destination within walking distance of the adult-only Shoreline Island Resort. Shoreline Island is an attraction in and of itself, thanks largely to its unbeatable beachfront suites, heated pool, shuffleboard courts, and private stretch of sand. That being said, you’ll no doubt want to spend at least one afternoon at John’s Pass, even if just for the sights, sounds, and, of course, fresh-caught seafood.
Shop ‘til You Drop
John’s Pass Village is beloved for its specialty boutiques, including local jewelers, surf-style shops, kite outlets, and Cuban cigar lounges. Couples, in particular, revere Landing Company, Wild Time Caribbean Trading Company, Kilwins, and The Spice & Tea Exchange. Unlike most other like-minded shopping meccas, your dollar goes further here in Madeira Beach.
Local Eats, Ice-Cold Brews, and Fine Wine
Most travelers plan a lengthy pit stop in John’s Pass mainly because of its culinary scene and craft beverage options. Mad Beach Craft Brewing Company slings some of the tastiest beer in Pinellas County, such as the medal-winning Czech Yo Self, the blackberry-infused Little Pucker, and the 10% ABV Peanut Butter Cup Stout (if you dare). The 21+ crowds can also sample award-winning vino at The Florida Winery and Zeno’s Wine Shop. Madeira Beach is also a fresh seafood giant, thanks largely to the likes of The Boardwalk Grill, Dockside Dave’s, and Pirates Pub -N- Grub.
John’s Pass Village also serves as the home base for countless aquatic adventure companies, including fishing charters, parasailing outfitters, jet ski rental outlets, and so many other unique opportunities. We highly recommend the teams at Hubbard’s Marina, Gators Parasail, Dolphin Quest, and MadBeach Watersports. Many of these excursions are geared toward couples and small groups of adults.
The Ultimate Adult-Only Madeira Beach Resort
