The "Pass", as locals refer to it, was created by a hurricane on September 27, 1848. A pirate, John Levique, made the first passage through the newly created pass. Hence the name, Johns Pass. Located on the waterfront at Johns Pass, this quaint turn-of-the-century fishing village is Pinellas County's #1 tourist attraction. Over one hundred merchants inhabit the Village with unique retail shopping, a variety of restaurants, the local fishing fleet, dolphin watching and shelling tours, boat rentals, parasailing and jet skiing.

Walked around for about an hour. Lots of the normal "cheap" trinket shops. Ate at Hooter's. An OK place. I think time could be better spent at the beach.

If you're at Madeira Beach, this is a great stopover with handy shops for most beach needs from towels and sunscreen to water bottles and souvenirs. You'll find nice spots to eat too, and there's even a pirate ship excursion. You'll find a great view...More

Nice little shopping area to sight see and pick up souvenirs. You do have to pay for parking and just an advice, don't keep circling around the street where the shops are for parking, just round out to the back behind the boardwalk and there's...More
