Created by a hurricane on September 27, 1848 a pirate, John Levique, 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. Over one hundred merchants inhabit the Village with unique retail shopping, a variety of restaurants, the local fishing fleet, dolphin watching and shelling tours, boat rentals, parasailing and jet skiing.

In the evening, John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk keeps the energy up with numerous bars, including The Hut Bar & Grill, a waterfront tiki-turned-sports bar serving up all of the favorites in a tropical vibe. Then, head to the Bamboo Bar on Village Boulevard for live music and a cool tiki-style patio, or sip a frosty cocktail from a waterfront dock on the Boardwalk.
