About Beach Pavilion
An example of Florida Vernacular architecture – the park lies directly of the Gulf of Mexico and features playground equipment, showers, bathrooms, bicycle rack, vending machines, shaded picnic area and protected dunes. There are metered parking spaces. Great sunset viewing area.
At either end of the island, with John’s Pass to the north and Blind Pass to the south, the beaches are narrower yet no less beautiful. These beaches, known as Sunshine Beach and Sunset Beach respectively, are more residential than commercial, and home to everything from quaint beach cottages to Key West-styled three-story homes, although there are some of the smaller “mid-century modern” motels from the 50’s and 60’s in these neighborhoods. Here you will find dunes of sea oats lining the beach with walkovers providing access. At the southern end of Treasure Island, in Sunset Beach, is a 5/10 mile boardwalk which encirles the tip of the island. This is where Blind Pass and the Gulf of Mexico meet, and it’s popular for fishing and just strolling.
