Loved our stay on Madeira beach. The beach was beautiful with soft sand. We saw dolphins many times during our stay. Would highly recommend a stay or a visit to this wonderful beach.

Relaxing, quieter section of beach, away from all of the Spring Breakers. Nice, wide sandy beach, perfect for a long walk!

Absolutely loved this beach. Parking was reasonable. Beach rentals, like umbrellas, paddle boards, and lounge chairs conveniently located on the beach. Bathroom located within walking distance.

Lots of places to shop and find treasures to take home from your Florida visit to Madeira Beach. Alligator attraction, lots of places to eat, and pick up souvenirs. Worth a stop.

For $15 on 130th Street you can rent a canopy and 2 chairs for the day. Call Eddie. Great convenience. Wonderful Beach and an amazing experience.

Love love coming to Madeira beach. One of our go to places when on vacation. There is something for everyone. Fun restaurant and cool gift shops. Everyone with great attitudes. Unfortunately the lady at kilwins chocolate seem grumpy when I asked her if the chocolates were all made on location. Otherwise great scenic place for everyone!!

Great sunsets! Soft white sugar sand! Love the feel on your feet and between your toes! This is one of the only beaches in the whole area you can bring alcohol to the beach as long as you don't have it in glass containers!
