Directly linked to Downtown Tampa by two bridges, Harbour Island is a luxury master-planned community which began in the 1980s on a 177-acre island just south of the city. Residences, including apartments, condominiums, town homes and single-family homes are located within walking distance of a variety of commercial, retail, and dining offerings.
Harbour Island itself is home to Café Dufrain, a waterfront restaurant with a menu that features mostly sustainable, organic, or locally grown items. Jackson's Bistro offers lunch and dinner during the week, and adds brunch to the mix on Sundays. On Friday and Saturday nights, Jackson's transforms into a club that draws patrons from across the bay.
The Harbour Island Athletic Club and Spa offers tennis and swim lessons to members, along with pilates, yoga, group exercise, and cycling classes. The Athletic Club features a full-size basketball court and three racquetball courts. If you need to wind down after a workout, you can relax in the dry sauna or steam room, or take advantage of one of the spa's services.
For out of town guests Westin Harbour Island gives visitors to the island the opportunity to stay in a luxury hotel. Entertainment possibilities off Harbour Island are seemingly endless as Channelside, the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, The Florida Aquarium, the St. Pete Times Forum, the Tampa History Center, the Tampa Convention Center and the Riverwalk are all easily accessible, by foot, car and even streetcar.
