Indian Rocks Beach
is a quiet town of approximately 5,000 residents and it is like a beach version of Mayberry with its quaint small town atmosphere. Named after an old Native American legend about the healing powers of the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the town was initially developed in the 1920's as a weekend getaway destination for wealthy inland residents. The strict zoning and height limitations for Indian Rocks Beach have managed to preserve the views and the family-oriented character of the area over the years. Today, Indian Rocks Beach is well-known as a picturesque and pristine beach community with a charming and relaxing atmosphere that appeals to adults and children of all ages. Despite its quiet residential character, Indian Rocks Beach is home to some of the best known restaurants along the Gulf Coast, an Arts and Crafts Festival is held in the Spring and Fall of each year, and an Oktoberfest Festival is held in mid-October of each year.

Activities available nearby include: golf, sailing, jetskis, boat charters/rentals, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, hiking/biking trails, jogging, aerobics classes, crafts classes, horseback riding, kite-flying, racquetball, volleyball, basketball, skateboarding, miniature golf, cinemas, community parks, libraries, gyms, dolphin-watching and dinner cruises, shopping, sightseeing, theme parks, and many other activities too numerous to list. Our Reef Club Condo Unit 106 is 30 minutes from Tampa International Airport (Tel 813-870-8700) and 20 minutes from St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport (Tel 727-453-7800). Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, and all the attractions in Tampa (aquarium, museums, theaters, restaurants, professional/college sports such as baseball, basketball, football, hockey, soccer, tennis, etc.) are each within 30 minutes and Disney/Sea World/ Universal Studios/Orlando is within 90 minutes. It is simply a great place to relax and/or engage in a wide range of activities!
