Oor arr me hearties, Treasure Island is a dream vacation

Treasure Island got its name after a local hotelier buried (and then 'discovered') several treasure chests on the island. But the real treasure is the beach town's 3 miles of palm-lined, white sandy beaches, each lapped by the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. A Treasure Island vacation rental makes a great base for family fun and adventures. Go swimming, snorkeling or sailing, or try parasailing and see Florida from a gull's perspective. After a busy day on the beach, kick back with a cool cocktail from Gator's Cafe and Saloon, the world's longest waterfront bar.

It's all hands to the deck on Treasure Island

Life is pretty beachy on Treasure Island. A vacation in this classic Floridian beach town has swimming, sunbathing and snorkeling all pretty high on the daily agenda. The community's main beach is dotted with water sports centers, where you can try parasailing, waterskiing, and sailing. In typical Treasure Island style, why not book a fun pirate cruise and spot dolphins from the nearby Clearwater Municipal Marina. If you're looking for more cultural attractions, head to St. Petersburg where you'll find a host of museums and art galleries.

Mutiny on the bounty? Only when they run out of ice cream

From your Treasure Island vacation rental it's only a 17-mile drive north to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Opened in 1972, it's been a popular hit with families visiting the Gulf for decades. Its most famous resident is Winter, the bottlenose dolphin with a prosthetic tail who featured in the children's movies, Dolphin Tale and Dolphin Tale 2. Aside from winter, it's also home to a variety of sharks, sea turtles, and pelicans. Closer to home is John's Pass Village and Boardwalk, a buzzy historic fishing village with quirky shops, bars, and restaurants.

There's no need to shiver your timbers on Treasure Island

Like much of Florida, Treasure Island benefits from a subtropical climate, which means long, hot summers and short, mild winters. The blistering summer months, between June and September, see temperatures as high as 90s and there's an increased threat of hurricanes and tropical storms. WInter is peak season in southern Florida when temperatures are a pleasant 70-80 degrees. It's a premium time for Treasure Island vacation rentals, so for the best choice visit in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall. The sun still shines daily, but the temperatures are cooler and there's less rainfall.
