About Tierra Verde
Tierra Verde is a resort-like community located on an island on the southernmost tip in Pinellas County surrounded by Tampa Bay. It is connected to both St Pete Beach and St Petersburg through the bridges of the Pinellas Bayway. Originally, Tierra Verde was comprised of 15 islands of various sizes, the largest one being Cabbage Key. American Indians used the islands for ceremonial and burial grounds. Today, it is a large, beautiful community of luxury condominiums, upscale single family homes, and massive estates.
South of the residential communities is Fort DeSoto, rated by Trip Advisor as America's Top Beach in 2008 and 2009 and ranked as the best beach in the nation in 2005 by Dr Beach. In addition to white, sandy beaches, Fort DeSoto is a 1,136 acre park with hiking trails, campsites, fishing pier and a plethora of wildlife.
