Destination guide

Relaxation at Indian Rocks Beach vacation home rentals

Indian Rocks Beach, a quiet, mostly residential resort city along 3 miles of the Gulf of Mexico's sandy shores, just 25 miles west of Tampa's busy airport, is all about sunshine and the beach. An Indian Rocks Beach vacation rental gives you all the warm and sunny downtime you require for recharging your batteries, plus easy access to everything the busy Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater area has to offer—culture and shopping, family-friendly amusements, fine and funky restaurants, aquatic and sports adventures, and more.

Things to do

Tourist attractions near Indian Rocks Beach vacation homes

Sun, sand, and surf are the main draws of this quiet resort city. But Indian Rocks Beach Historical Museum offers an enlightening diversion. In a historic cottage in Chic-a-Si Park, displays tell the story of people in this area, from Native Americans to pioneers to modern times. Try a family excursion to a marine aquarium—there's 1 to the north in Clearwater and another across the bay in Tampa. Heritage Village in Largo is a living museum of local history, and museums of art, history, and culture are sprinkled around the metro area, including a notable venue for Salvador Dali's surrealist art.


Activities near Indian Rocks Beach vacation homes

Ocean and beach activities rule from your Indian Rocks Beach vacation rental. Sun yourself on your special spot of sand, or rent boats, kayaks, paddle boards, surfboards, and bikes. You could book a sport fishing charter, join a dolphin- or whale-watching tour, or head to Splash Harbour, a small water park with a waterslide and pools. There are also oyster bars, seafood, and other eateries to suit all tastes. Alternatively, why not try a yoga or art class? Shoppers can browse specialty shops in town, or head to the malls in bigger communities or other beach towns. Golf and mini-golf courses are also available inland.


Local weather near Indian Rocks Beach vacation rentals

Indian Rocks Beach has the exact Gulf climate you'd expect. Summer (June through September) is hot and muggy, with temps hitting the 90s—perfect for a relaxed beach visit from your Indian Rocks Beach vacation rental. In winter, the still-balmy weather brings in frozen travelers from more northerly locations, who might hit the jackpot with occasional 80-degree days. Expect rainfall any time of year, but it's wettest in summer, especially August. You'll get the most sunshine in April and May, the least in December.

At Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve, a quiet, 9-acre park squeezed between condos, there's a boardwalk for viewing crabs, lizards, fish, and seabirds among the vegetation—you might even spot a shark. There are bigger wildlife refuges in the islands off St. Pete.
