Located a few minutes south of Madeira Beach is the wonderful Fort De Soto Park. This historical park has something for everyone, and is a virtual playground for the outdoor enthusiast.
For a little outdoor adventure why not rent a kayak and patrol the mangroves of the park while taking in the abundant wildlife in the area. If history is your thing, take a tour of the remnants of the Fort that once stood guard to Tampa Bay. Fort De Soto Park is also home to two of the finest beaches in the area, and has two piers available to the general public for fishing.
