Excursion Guide Tierra Verde - Sandbar Day

Start the Day at Shell Key Preserve

The perfect start to a day on the water, Shell Key is just a few minute ride from your Tierra Verde Gulfstream club. The island provides the perfect secluded getaway spot close to the busier St Pete beaches, yet far enough away to be in the middle of nature.

Lined with white sand beaches to the west side of the island, boaters can pull right up to this island preserve. But be sure to check local tide charts before navigating the shallow waters that lie to the east of Shell Key. The warm, shallow waters and soft sand beaches of this Tierra Verde sandbar location are ideal for a little wading or relaxed swimming, and of course sea shelling!

Stop by Sea Dogs for Lunch and a Brew

Perfectly positioned on the intracoastal, the waterfront bar and open-air dining area offers a winning combination. This local brew pub is known for their Gulf-inspired scratch-made dishes, beer-infused cocktails, and local craft brews. There is plenty of docking and is located on the Intracoastal right before the bridge from St Pete Beach to Treasure Island.

Soak up the Sun at Johns Pass Sandbar

The Johns Pass sandbar is located just inland from Johns Pass Inlet, roughly between Treasure Island and Madeira Beach. Stormed by hundreds of boats every weekend, local sandbars are like community gathering places.

The shallow waters of Eleanor Island in John’s Pass are truly paradise everyone can enjoy! Pack a cooler, hang with the locals and spend the rest of the day watching the tide change and sun fade.
