Located across the bay from Tampa, Madeira Beach is blissfully quiet compared to its bigger neighbors Largo and St. Petersburg. It is a fantastic place to take younger children, as they have plenty of room to run and play and you don’t have to worry about losing them in the crowd. This was our kids first time at the ocean, and having this beach’s fluffy and soft sand to ourselves was absolutely perfect.
I loved watching this sunset. Luke was a little nervous with all the waves, and every time I’d step foot into the water I’d hear a frantic “Mama! No go beach!” So it was great for us to just sit in the sand, listen to the power of the ocean and watch the sky turn beautiful colors for us.
