West of Tampa, between Clearwater and St. Petersburg, Florida, lies gorgeous Madeira Beach. This beautiful beach oasis is the perfect location for a winter getaway or a summer in the sun.
With pristine beaches and an amazing atmosphere, there are tons to do here besides lying out on the beach and working on that tan. One activity that is great for all ages is parasailing! We recommend planning your parasailing adventure through one of these companies: Gators Parasail, Fly-N-High Waverunners and Parasail, or Eagle Parasail. The Alligator Attraction is also a great experience for the whole family. You get to learn all about alligators and even hold a baby alligator! If you’re into fishing and spending the day with nothing but blue water all around you then this definitely is the place for you. There are more than a dozen different charter companies offering amazing fishing experiences for every skill level. Consider contacting these ones to schedule your fishing charter trip: Hubbard’s Marina, Fintastic Fishing Charters, Bent Charters Fishing, Got One Sportfishing, or Merryweather Charters. There are also various gift shops all over town so you can pick up something memorable to remember your vacation. If you’re really feeling brave, Weather Eco will take you on a shark diving expedition!

If you are looking to see more of this corner of the world then take a day trip to explore. Going north to Clearwater (30 minute drive) is a great place to spend the day. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium is a must see! This facility is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation and release of marine animals. It is also home to Winter the Dolphin, star of the Dolphin Tale movies. Aspirations Winery Tour and Tastings is another great part of Clearwater. Of course there are also loads of tours both on land and water for every one of all ages. Another great day trip spot is St. Petersburg to the east (30 minute drive). Here you’ll want to check out the surrealist art at the Salvador Dalí Museum. You should also go to the Sunken Gardens, which is a truly breathtaking historic botanical garden.
