South Tampa- Davis Islands Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Florida

A short time later, the man-made Davis Island was developed. Harbour Island is one of the area's exclusive residential areas, with elegant homes and a gated community. Here the streets wind past stately homes with beautiful landscaping. South Tampa is adjacent to Hillsborough Bay, just south of downtown Tampa.
