This quaint waterfront area beach is nestled amongst condominiums, motels and apartments.

Indian Rocks, with its 27 access points along Gulf Boulevard is popular with locals and visitors alike. Sea Oats & other vegetation greet wedding groups as they walk over a little bridge, onto the sparkling sand that is close to the water’s edge.

In other words:  this beach doesn’t have as much sand as some others; so it is recommended for groups of less than 20 ct or a.m. weddings.

Due to limited parking:  everyone will park at The Holiday Inn Harbourside and walk two blocks to this beach.

Beach Access on 4th Avenue & Gulf Boulevard 33785
Nearest Landmark is the CVS across the street.

The Indian Rocks Beach Historical Museum operated by the Indian Rocks Indian Rocks Area Historical Society and Museum was founded in 1980.  This enthusiastic group of volunteers collect, preserve & share the history of Indian Rocks (an area that originally included what is today Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores, and a part of Largo). Indian Rocks Beach, Florida got its name when a native medicine man miraculously healed his chief with the waters from a natural rock-surrounded sulfur spring once located across from Indian Rocks Beach City Hall.  Now Indian Rocks Beach is a thriving community that has maintained most of its original character and supports a lively mixture of recreational activities.
