For a break from the beach, check out John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk in Madeira Beach. With more than 100 retailers, restaurants and attractions. Your visit here can easily turn into a full day of fun. Shop for classic Florida souvenirs in the tin-roofed village. Enjoy seafood and casual fare al fresco, and hit the boardwalk for a view of (or ride on) the water – fishing charters, water sports rentals and cruise boats await.
Explore the Gulf With a Water Sport Rental or Charter!
John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk sits on the pass that connects the Gulf of Mexico with Boca Ciega Bay, and those blue waters call loudly.
The boardwalk is full of ways to get on the water, from boat and personal watercraft rentals to parasailing excursions and deep-sea fishing charters. John’s Pass WaveRunners is one place where you can rent single- and multi-person crafts by the hour. Once you’re equipped with a life jacket and watercraft, seek out quiet coves to practice turning, and keep an eye out for dolphins. Dolphin Quest makes dolphin-spotting its mission.
Dig in at the Boardwalk Restaurants.
Back at the village, scout your lunch or dinner spot. For bar fare, salads and sandwiches with live music and a waterfront view, you can’t beat The Hut – its 70-foot bar sits right on the boardwalk. Upstairs, Sculley’s Restaurant emphasizes fresh seafood and those same stunning views from its rustic deck. Other great options: Walt’z Fish Shak, a driftwood shack sporting reggae colors where you’ll find a perfectly delicious grouper sandwich and outrageous yucca fries. Treat yourself to ice cream at one of the village parlors—Sugar Daddy’s and Kilwin’s. They sell yummy homemade premium scoops. Afterwards, make your way back to the boardwalk for some retail therapy.
