Incorporated on March 16, 1950, much of Belleair Beach's 1 1/2 square miles was build with a "dredge and fill" operation creating fingers of land reaching into the Intracoastal Waterway.

Gulf Boulevard runs North and South through Belleair Beach, connecting Sand Key (Clearwater Beach) and Indian Rocks Beach. 2,200 residents - a mix of Seniors, professionals, and families - call Belleair Beach home.

Belleair Beach is at the West end of West Bay Drive, connected to the mainland via causeway and drawbridge. Belleair Bluffs is directly to the East, accross the Intracoastal, from Belleair Beach.

Residents may take advantage of two city owned tennis courts, a boat ramp, a 20 slip municipal marina, Gulf Beach access easements & parking, as well as several parks on the Intracoastal Waterway

Belleair Shore Florida Sign
Belleair Shores occupies just 18 city blocks (1 block wide) between Gulf Blvd. and Belleair Beach to the East and the Gulf of Mexico to the West. Housing in Belleair Shores consists of Gulf Front single family homes, all in the million dollar plus range.

The only signage indicating the City of Belleair Shores even exists are these "Private" signs at the beach access parking lot gates. There are no public beaches in Belleair Shores ... and therefore the beach restoration project skipped over this area, leaving a "gap" in the new beach.

Tierra Verde
Once envisioned as a huge waterfront housing development, Tierra Verde was to be an island retreat for people escaping from the North. 667 acres were purchased by Louis and Fred Berlanti in 1959 for the original Tierra Verde development. Owners of a construction company in the Northeast, they planned to continue to develop the area over many years.

Tragically, both father and son were killed in a small plane crash in 1963. With only the first of three planned phases of the development finished, the project stalled. Other developers tried to revive the plans, but not succeeded.

Tierra Verde was eventually divided into individual lots, and now includes some of the finest waterfront homes in the Tampa Bay area.

Fort De Soto Park is down the road from Tierra Verde

A Little Bit of Belleair Bluffs History
The land to the North & South of West Bay Drive at the causeway to the islands was purchased in the 1880's by P. J. Bayly, an Englishman who migrated to this area from Australia. He established 20 acres of citrus groves on the bluffs which were protected from severe freeze's in the 1890's by the warming effects of Clearwater Harbor.

A two mile bike path of oyster and coquina shells was built by Mr. Bayly, allowing access for the pioneer families who picnicked on the bluffs. Some slide down the bluffs for fishing and swimming, but they faced the tough climb back up the big hill.
