Communities in Treasure Island Beaches
Treasure Island Beach is a beautiful barrier island community in Pinellas County on Florida’s Central Gulf Coast.
Because legend has it that early settlers discovered chests filled with treasure on its white sandy beaches, people began calling this tiny tropical paradise, Treasure Island. Truth be told, those treasure chests were planted by early land developers to boost property sales in the area. Over time, Treasure Island’s peaceful ambience and natural beauty has attracted many residents including baseball slugger, Babe Ruth, who retired there.
Today, Treasure Island is a well-loved vacation and beach home destination, offering beachfront condos, luxury properties and single-family residential communities with boat docks. It boasts nearly 30 miles of Gulf of Mexico and Bay frontage, and close to a thousand acres of land.
There’s so much to do with the wide stretches of pristine beaches, boating, fishing, parks, restaurants and shops on the island. And, the historic fishing village of John’s Pass is just minutes away. Treasure Island, Florida is near famous Clearwater Beach, St. Pete Beach and Madeira Beach, and is about 35 minutes from Tampa International Airport.
