Treasure Island Beach

Three miles of sparkling sand lines the Gulf with an array of lodging, from luxury resorts to kitschy hotels and small inns. The beach here is uncommonly wide in most parts, which means you’ll find plenty of space to spread out. Old-school mom ‘n’ pop hotels lend T.I. (as locals call it) a ton of Old Florida charm, as does a quaint neighborhood on its southern tip, Sunset Beach. 

There are three different beach neighborhoods. The first area is mid-island. It is a very wide beach and it is here that you will find most of our gulf-front motels, hotels and condo-hotels. It is a commercial area with many restaurants, shops and conveniences all within a short walking distance. It is along the mid-island stretch of Treasure Island that you'll find our .85 mile Treasure Island Beach Trail, perfect for walking, skateboarding, dog-walking and bicycling. The trail meanders the beach through sea oats dunes between 104th and 119th Avenues, parallel to the shoreline.

At either end of the island, with John's Pass to the north and Blind Pass to the south, the beaches are narrower yet no less beautiful. These beaches, known as Sunshine Beach and Sunset Beach respectively, are more residential than commercial, and home to everything from quaint beach cottages to Key West-style three-story homes, although there are some of the smaller "mid-century modern" motels from the '50s and '60s in these neighborhoods. Here you will find dunes of sea oats lining the beach with walkovers providing access. At the southern end of Treasure Island, in Sunset Beach, there is a 5/10 mile boardwalk encircling the tip of the island. This is where Blind Pass and the Gulf of Mexico meet, and it's popular for fishing and just strolling.

The city of Treasure Island has installed an ADA beach access mat called a MobiMat, which is the first of its kind in Pinellas County. The mat was installed at Gulf Front Park, 10400 Gulf Boulevard, the busiest beach access location in Treasure Island. The MobiMat is a removable access pathway made out of recycled materials. It extends approximately 400 ft. towards the gulf and is 6.5 ft. wide. It provides improved accessibility for those with mobility impairments and for pedestrians and users of strollers and beach carts.
