Treasure Island Real Estate Information

Sandwiched between Madeira Beach and St. Pete Beach on a barrier island that separates the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway. Hosting just over 8,000 residents, the majority of Treasure Island’s people live either directly on the waterfront or within a few walking minutes from the beach. With little or no industrial activity or commercial operations in the area, Treasure Island is primarily a residential area. Accordingly, residents rely on neighboring communities to support their commercial needs. However, a relatively small business district provides essential amenities close to home. A palm tree-line drive is anchored by the community’s famous clock tower and provides a number of dining and shopping options.

Treasure Island was originally settled in small communities by Native American tribes and was first recorded in 1528 when Spanish explorer Panfilo de Narvaez arrived in te region. Treasure Island got its name by several property owners who attempting to boost their real estate values by faking the discovery of several wooden chests on the beach. A number of neighborhoods comprise the present-day Treasure Island, including Sunshine Beach, Isle of Capri, Isle of Palms, Paradise Island, and Sunset Beach. East neighborhoods brings its own personality and flair to the already dynamic Treasure Island cultural fabric.
