Madeira Beach, Florida was first settled by the Timucan Indians around 300 A.D. The Timucan established small communities and traded with other Indian Nations until the arrival of Spaniard Panfilio de Narvaez in 1528.

The area slowly became populated by Europeans and their descendants who primarily lived in beach shacks and eeked out a living by fishing and harvesting turtles.

The "Great Gale" of 1848 created John's Pass on the Island's south end which is now home to the world famous John's Pass Village.

Hubbard's Marina was established in 1935 and John's Pass Village was established in the 1980's. In 1971 a new bridge was built over John's Pass connecting Treasure Island to Madeira Beach. Today that bridge is in the process of being replaced.

Today Madeira Beach is a combination of old Florida charm and up to date hotels and condo hotels.
