Southshore Bay

Welcome to Southshore Bay

An exciting, active, and all-inclusive private lagoon
 
Nestled in Wimauma is an upscale community that’s about as close to paradise as you can get. Southshore Bay is a planned community intentionally designed to surround a manmade lagoon. Imagine having five acres of pristine, clear water just outside your front door, and you’ll have an idea of what it’s like to live in Southshore Bay. Residents enjoy swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, and more in posh neighborhoods designed to be all-inclusive of their needs. Afterward, they kick back and relax in the sunshine with a drink from the swim-up bar.
 
Some people go on vacation a couple of weeks a year, but Southshore Bay residents live an exciting vacation-style life every day of the year. Homes are modern and spacious, varying in price for different budgets and lifestyles, and available in single-family dwellings, luxury villas, and posh townhouses. They’re all considered a “smart home” because they’re prewired for smart control automation. Also, the entire community of Southshore Bay is equipped with ULTRAFi, the fastest internet in North America. Residents enjoy tree-lined walking paths and trails, parks, fountains, picnic areas, a fitness center, swimming pools, and a clubhouse.

Local Lifestyle

Golf cart paths wind throughout the community, so residents just hop in a cart and cruise to a friend’s house or a neighborhood event. Live music events, Kid’s Club crafts and fun, bingo, trivia night, movie night, karaoke, and more occur regularly. Members enjoy hanging out at the clubhouse with friends and exercising at the fitness center. Locals enjoy the freshest produce, artisan bread, jewelry, clothing, and more at the MiraBay Market in nearby Apollo Beach.
 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Rumor has it that the capellini in clam sauce at the Bella Cucina Italian Family Restaurant is especially good. Not to be outdone, though, Fiore’s Restaurant will tempt you with their fried clam strips—decisions, decisions. For date night and fine dining along the waterfront, Circles Waterfront restaurant in Apollo Beach beckons.

The haute couture stores and spas at International Plaza and Bay Street in Tampa are just a short trip away for shopping lovers. Fashionistas love the many upscale stores, including clothing designers, luxury jewelry, handbags, and home décor.
 

Things to Do

Southshore Bay residents are never bored. They have water activities and sunbathing every day along the lagoon and parks, walking trails, a fitness center, and a clubhouse. For a championship golf course, fitness center, pool, clubhouse, and a tiki bar, the Waterlefe Golf & River Club near Bradenton is only about 15 miles away.
 
Nature lovers head over to the 11-acre Bethune Park for picnic shelters, walking trails, and playgrounds. If that’s not enough, the 63-acre Apollo Beach Nature Preserve is famous for two acres of beachline, picnics, sunbathing, nature trails, and plenty of shoreline fishing. It’s known for its beautiful sunsets over Tampa Bay, so be prepared to take plenty of photos.
 
The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature offers The Planetarium, the Parker Manatee Rehabilitation Habitat, the Mosaic Backyard Universe, and continually changing exhibits.
