The pirate named John LeVique was the first European to "settle" the Madeira Beach area, or so it is said. Madeira Beach FL, just west of St. Petersburg, is best known for the sea-themed John's Pass Village and Boardwalk, hosting a variety of shops, restaurants and a 1,100-foot boardwalk along the Intracoastal. Madeira's 2.5-mile beach attracts beach goers, boaters and fishing as the primary pastimes. More grouper is brought into John's Pass than any other place in the state- great fishing! Each October, Madeira Beach hosts the Seafood Festival at John's Pass, which attracts as many as 150,000 visitors to its celebration of food, music, and arts and crafts. There is plenty to see and do and seasonal visitors often turn into city residents and property owners once they explore and take in the area, its friendly people and real estate for sale there.
