For years, it was affectionately dubbed “Beer Can Island,” but since 2017, new owners have transformed this once untamed terrain into a haven for families. Now, it boasts a vibrant atmosphere complete with a tiki bar serving delicious food and drinks, a giant waterslide for the kids, beachside games, camping, and a delightful food truck.

Looking ahead, the island’s future is brimming with ambitious plans. Breakwaters will be strategically installed along the western and southern shores to safeguard against erosion. Extensive efforts will also involve augmenting the island’s size by adding several acres of sand, aiming to restore it to its expansive 1995 dimensions of over 26 acres. Alongside, meticulous landscaping and the introduction of supplementary amenities will enhance the island’s allure.

Collaborating closely with county officials, legal experts, engineers, and designers, we are dedicated to crafting a reimagined island experience that surpasses all past iterations.

Seven years ago, a visionary collaboration transformed this island into a sought-after, membership-based paradise. Partnerships with esteemed charter companies not only elevated its value within the Tampa Bay community but also turned it into a vibrant destination for residents and visitors alike.

Currently unzoned, Pine Key offers a unique opportunity for innovation. With the right vision and willingness to collaborate with Hillsborough County, opportunities for development could be explored and expanded upon.
In Hillsborough, there are currently four other islands with residential zoning. Notably, one spans 2.58 acres with ‘residential 20’ zoning, emphasizing spacious residential possibilities, and another, 1.41 acres, is zoned ‘residential 4,’ showcasing potential for more concentrated yet appealing layouts. These instances provide valuable insights into the diverse residential zoning options already enjoyed within the county, offering precedents for the island’s prospective development pending proper zoning and regulatory considerations.
Beyond its allure for private buyers, corporations, and international investors, Beer Can Island has become an integral part of the local community, weaving economic and social threads that enrich its surroundings. This isn’t just a property; it’s a narrative, an evolving story of transformation and untapped possibilities. With historical recognition for hosting events, the island seamlessly transitions into an exclusive VIP property, tailored for both private and corporate ownership.
