Our city is less than three miles along the Gulf of Mexico and, like its neighboring barrier islands, waterfront property faces either the Gulf or the Intracoastal Waterway. At some points along this narrow piece of land you can view both bodies of water.
A quiet town of approximately 4,000, Indian Rocks Beach was initially developed in the 1920’s as a weekend getaway destination for wealthy inland residents. Its 2.7 miles of beachfront are popular with all ages and between its array of motels and condominiums there are more than 20 beach accesses.
Despite its sleepy appearance, Indian Rocks Beach is home to some of the best known restaurants along the Gulf Coast, and holds an Arts and Crafts Festival every November and April. The city’s tourist population, especially in the winter months, is one of its greatest assets.
Our easily accessible beaches and intracoastal waterways provide an array of enjoyable activities for residents and visitors alike. Whether you swim, fish boat or just sunbathe there are an endless number of amenities available for your pleasure. Information Provided By Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce.
