Over 100 merchants populate the Village offering unique retail shopping experiences, multiple places to eat, rent wave runners, book a fishing trip or floating tiki bar and more. History reflects that the Pass was created by a hurricane way back in 1848. On September 27, 1848, a retired pirate, John Levique, now calling this area home made the first passage through the newly created pass. Hence the name, Johns Pass. Located on the waterfront at Johns Pass, this quaint turn-of-the-century fishing village is Pinellas County’s #1 tourist attraction.

Inside Scoop

SEA TURTLES ~
You may see areas marked off with stakes & orange netting that are sea turtle nests that have been identified and contained so they are not disturbed to give the eggs time to hatch. The majority of nesting in Florida occurs between May 1st and October 31st. About 90% of all sea turtle nesting in the United States takes place on Florida's beaches, which means it is critical that residents and visitors alike do their part to ensure that sea turtles have a safe and successful nesting season. If you are staying at the condos along the beaches, please keep your porch lights off during this time of year so as not to confuse the hatching turtles; they head towards the moonlight to find the Gulf of Mexico waters and start their life. It is also important at the end of your beach day that you flatten any sand castles you’ve made or holes dug as they interfere with the turtles track to the water.

MANATEES ~ Sometimes you will see these gentle giants swimming along just off shore. Keep your eyes open "circle" footprints they leave when surfacing for air.

DOLPHINS ~ You'll often see these beautiful creatures playing or feeding not far from shore.

SEA OATS ~ While walking along our beaches some areas boast Sand Dunes & Sea Oats which are not for playing on. The Sea Oats are protected and combined with the dunes help to protect our beautiful beaches from erosion. They are also nesting places for many of our shore birds.

Speaking of birds, Indian Shores is the home of the Seaside Seabird Sanctuary that helps to rescue, rehabilitate injured birds & educate the public. A little south of Park Boulevard Bridge is the 1.5-acre wild bird rehabilitation center with over 100 birds on display including Pelicans, Owls, Hawks, Vultures, song birds, Shore birds, and parrots. Other features include gift shop, education center, observation tower overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, daily pelican hand-feeding, weekly screech owl demonstration, monthly yoga class on the beach, and much more. Located on Gulf Blvd. in front of mile marker #13.
