Treasure Island.

Treasure Island is on the Gulf Coast of Florida, west of St. Petersburg and Southwest of Tampa. It is one of the small municipalities on a group of outlying barrier islands that run from the inlet to Tampa Bay northward to Honeymoon Island State Park.

 

The city of Treasure Island has a permanent population of around 7,500 people and a large visitor influx is seen during the winter tourist season. It is bordered on the west by the Gulf of Mexico and on the east by Boca Ciega Bay. On the north it is bordered by John's Pass and Madeira Beach and the south by Blind Pass and St. Pete Beach. It has about 3 miles of gulf beach and relatively large residential waterfront communities dredged from Boca Ciega Bay. 

 

There is good access to the beach for day time visitors, vacationers and residents alike through the beach parks in Treasure Island. The largest of these, the St. Petersburg Municipal Beach in Treasure Island (owned by the City of St. Petersburg and NOT to be confused with the municipality or beach of St. Pete Beach further south) is a very large beach by Florida standards. Parking for the beach is adequate for all but crowded days and the walk from the pavilion area to the water is approximately 1000 feet. Luckily it is not all sugar sand to traverse - just the last 200' or so - and walking is not a terrible chore. If you're in the mood for morning power walks or evening strolls there is a sidewalk spanning the width of the beach. Volleyball pits and other sports areas can be located on the beach. Grassy dunes pop up everywhere on the huge expanse of sand.

 

While the jewels in Treasure Island's crown are its beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, it is hard to overlook the great waterfront property of the island. Broad canals spilling into Boca Ciega Bay within a few minutes of the ocean through Blind Pass or John's Pass to the north make this a boater and fisherman's paradise. The Intracoastal Waterway channels through Boca Ciega Bay, also and day sailing trips to the exotic ports of Clearwater, Tampa and Sarasota are easily achieved.

 

Visitors to Treasure Island, Florida can tour many west and south Florida cities by car.  The Sarasota area can be reached in about 30 minutes. All of the little beach cities along Gulf Boulevard north and south of Treasure Island can be visited with a leisurely drive. The cultural center of the area - St. Petersburg - is about 15 minutes away and Tampa about 20. This area can be accessed best from the Tampa International Airport (20 minutes) or The Bradenton Sarasota Airport (30 minutes).
