Nestled along the shore line of Madeira beach is the cozy little village of John’s pass. There’s plenty to do here and lots to see. From walking along the boardwalk to taking a cruise on a pirate ship, this place has it all. There are over 100 merchants along the strip selling all kinds of unique items. You can rent boats, jet skis and even parasail here. There’s also a wide variety of restaurants available and you can find some very fresh seafood options.

We especially enjoyed the Alligator & Wildlife Discovery Center as we both love animals. They have a wide variety of them here. There’s plenty of bars as well along the strip as well as hotels if you want to spend the night or longer. My old phone died giving us directions to get here so my wife took most of the pictures you see here. I really need to return here to photograph the place. You can spend the whole day at this place and not be bored. They advertise plenty of parking but we had difficulty finding a spot.
