We basically sat and watched the boats go by. The beach is beautiful and there is plenty to do close by. The is paddle boarding, and jet skiing along with other water sports available. You can also get yours.

If you want to swim in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Maderia Beach is the place to do it. Beautiful white sand with tons of area to lay out in.

If you don't like the crowds and noise of St. Pete or Clearwater beaches, Mad Beach is for you! Beautiful, clean and close to restaurants, water sports, entertainment and shopping. John's Pass has everything from great dining to ice cream shops to Hooters! I'd suggest a condo via Resort Rentals. If you can afford something on the beach with a... More

Actually found parking right at the beach change building. It was a nice hot day, but the beach did not get overly packed.

When I first came back to America coupla years back, the first place I hit was Mad Beach, where I stayed on the beach for a week. Great atmosphere, both for drinkers, foodies and families on vacation.

The beach is very clean. We did some shelling, the most impressive thing is the beauty of the sunset. Don't miss it.
