Treasure Island, nicknamed the “Jewel of the Gulf Beaches,” pleases residents and visitors with its blue waters and white sandy beaches. With five exclusive neighborhoods and active local commerce, Treasure Island is a great place to live and work. There are approximately 5,000 full time residents and 7,500 seasonal occupants.
The tale behind how Treasure Island got its name is amusing. In 1918, frequent historic Coney Island Hotel guest Bill McAdoo and friend, William Brantley, buried “treasure” one night on the nearby beach. The next day they “discovered” the treasure, which stimulated media and public attention. People began referring to the area as the island where treasure was found, and the Treasure Island designation stuck. Four towns, Treasure Island, Boca Ciega, Sunshine Beach, and Sunset Beach, incorporated as the City of Treasure Island in 1955.
Treasure Island residents enjoy the pleasures of these five distinctive neighborhoods:
Sunshine Beach, one of Treasure Island’s original neighborhoods, is on the north central part of island. Home styles are a mixture of classic beach cottages and modern condos. Bordered by the Intracoastal Waterway on the east and the Gulf of Mexico on the west, the views are breathtaking.
