Tierra Verde is located on the southernmost tip of Pinellas County. It is the gateway to the famed Fort Desoto Park – Rated America’s Top Beach in both 2008 and 2009 by TripAdvisor and recognized by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman (a.k.a. “Dr. Beach”) as the United States’ number-one beach.
Tierra Verde originally consisted of fifteen mangrove islands ranging in size from a few acres to the largest, Cabbage Key, spanning approximately 289 acres. For centuries, Native Americans used the islands as a ceremonial center and fishing grounds. Today, this archipelago is a vast luxury residential community sprinkled with waterfront condominium complexes, mid-sized single family homes and luxurious multi-million dollar mansions and estates. All of this is surrounded by the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay.
Residents enjoy a variety of on-island restaurants, local shops, small business services, gift shops, banks, beauty salons, convenience stores, world-class marinas, and more. The archipelago is connected to the mainland by an “at will” draw bridge. One can easily reach St. Pete Beach, I-275, Eckerd College, and downtown St. Pete within a matter of minutes. Located just over the bridge is the Isla del Sol Yacht and Country Club. Members enjoy access to world-class tennis, golf, swimming, dining, and marina facilities.
There are a multitude of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers too! Access points along the Pinellas Bayway (the community’s main thoroughfare) provide opportunities for kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, swimming, and fishing in the glittering turquoise waters that surround the islands. From the T.V. Bridge (popular with fishing enthusiasts) one can take in the view of the sparkling Tampa Bay and Gulf waters, the St. Pete Beach skyline, and the Loews Don Cesar Hotel &Resort.
The community also boasts an outdoor public sports complex and fantastic playground for local children. While residents further enjoy bike rides, walking, and rollerblading along the meandering palm-lined sidewalks that span the length of the islands. Throughout Ft. Desoto Park one can access the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay at the public boat launch. Most visitors take a leisurely break at one of the numerous public beaches. Here one can view the Pinellas National Wildlife Refuge and Shell Key Preserve – look out for dolphins, manatees, flying fish and sea birds galore.
