Nice beach, a bit on the small side and is about to get seriously overcrowded because I hear they will be building 2 new hotels and 2 new condominium complexes across the street. Nothing near by to go for eats. They soon may exceed there limits and ruin a good thing. Sad, its all about $$$.

We really enjoyed our stay in Madeira Beach. Easy access and uncrowded. you could see the para-sails. kite boarders, jet skies and boats in the distance. The sand was kept very clean and perfect for taking walks. Watching the pelicans diving and dolphins just never really gets old. No restaurants or bars but a quick walk back to our room... More

Easy parking, $2./hour. The beach area was clean and it was huge. The water was nice and clear as well. Not very crowded.

We hung out with the family. Played football & threw the frisby. It was not crowded & the water was cold but beautiful. Then we went across the street to eat lunch & shop. What fun!

Just a lovely beach for walking and maybe looking for that 'perfect' seashell! Lots of parking nearby and the beach is always clean!

This is a beautiful beach that doesn't get crowded. It has fine white sand with blue water. The locals and visitors alike keep the place clean.

It was a really nice afternoon for a walk on the beach! Sunny skies and soft white sand. I recommend this beach for an off-season walk.

Spent a Friday morning down there. Not many people and super clean beach. Sand was powdery soft and the water was a little chilly. Quick walk to Johns Pass across the street. Parking at a few of the hotels for a price. Peaceful and gorgeous. Lots of birds to see.
