This waterway splits around our islands and one leg runs along our canals providing deep save water passage including to families doing the “Great Loop”.
“The Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) is a 3,000-mile (4,800 km) inland waterway along the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coasts of the United States, running from Boston, Massachusetts, southward along the Atlantic Seaboard and around the southern tip of Florida, then following the Gulf Coast to Brownsville, Texas…It provides a navigable route along its length without many of the hazards of travel on the open sea.”

The Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail passes our gate at Bayway Isles. It is used by both amateur and professional bike groups for long distance training as well as more casual use by our residents for walking, jogging, cycling and inline skating,
The trail stretches 50 miles (as of 2018) from Tarpon Springs in the north to Fort Desoto park in the south, passing through the towns of Palm Harbor, Dunedin, Clearwater, Largo, Seminole, South Pasadena, and Gulfport.
Some trail users commute to work using the Pinellas Trail instead of a motor vehicle and some of our residents walk on it to visit the country club or nearby shopping/dining area.
