Treasure Island

Bird of Paradise foliage on Treasure Island
Bird of Paradise

When Treasure Island residents cross over one of the three bridges to their barrier island homes, the tropical light, colorful foliage and the sound of seabirds in the air let them know they’ve arrived someplace very special.

The three and a half-mile beach that fronts the Gulf of Mexico makes up the western boundary of Treasure Island. Narrow at both ends and wide in the middle, locals claim that it’s the widest beach on the Gulf Coast. At the north end is John’s Pass, with Madeira Beach on the other side, and at the south end is Blind Pass, both have access to the Gulf of Mexico from inland waters. In fact, Treasure Island is an island.

Hotels, motels and condominiums occupy most of the beach front property while most of the town’s residents live along canals on the landside of the island. The proximity to the Gulf and the canal houses with boat slips make it a great place for boaters.

In addition to its marina and three very busy public boat ramps, the town also provides wonderful land-based recreational facilities. The Treasure Island park system was designed with the goal that every resident would be within walking distance of a park. The Treasure Island Golf & Tennis Center includes a 9-hole golf course, 10 tennis courts, plus facilities for volleyball, basketball, horseshoes and shuffleboard.

Life’s a Beach

treasureisland2According to the 2010 U.S. Census, 6,705 residents enjoy an easygoing, flip-flop lifestyle. They have the advantages of living in a small, but well-serviced community where they essentially are on vacation every day of the week. Treasure Island features a lively restaurant and bar scene along the beach, catering to locals as well as the high number of annual visitors from near and far.

Fun in the Sand

An annual highlight of living in Treasure Island is the Master Sand Sculpting Competition and Music Festival called Sanding Ovations. It is a four day competition of sand sculpting masters from places in North America and Europe, who create astonishing works of art using nothing but sand, water and lots of their own imagination.

“Treasure Island was a really nice place to grow up. As kids we fished, went waterskiing and played on the beach and kids can still do that here. And you’ll not find better neighbors. We stick together and really care about our community.” –Butch Ellsworth, lifelong resident.
