For information on weddings at the DoubleTree Beach Resort see doubletree3.hilton.com Redington Beach was once known as North Madeira Beach, established in 1945. It was named after Charles E Reddington, a real estate developer, and snow bird who frequently came down for the winters from his home in Indian in the 1920s. He began buying up Pinellas County’s mostly barren, beachfront property from current day Madeira Beach to Indian Rocks Beach. He built the first home on Reddington Beach in 1935, by 1940 there were 5 homes. His vision was creating a west coast Miami Beach. He built the Tides Hotel in 1940 in this effort. Although it was popular with a couple of celebritites, in the ensuing years as times changed the popular destination began losing both its appeal & profit. Charles Reddington’s goal never came to pass however he was able to put his mark in the barrier islands now known as Reddington Beach. Today Redington Beach is known as a quaint beach community where you can enjoy the pristine beaches of the gulf without the massive crowds of the bigger Pinellas County Beaches.
