According to legend, Indian Rocks Beach, FL got its name when early settlers remarked upon witnessing Native Americans fetching water from a local sulfur spring, “the Indians are on their way to the rocks.” You’ll find even more intriguing history on offer and a plethora of adventurous activities when you visit this beautiful beachside town.
Located on Florida’s central west coast less than 30 miles from Tampa, Indian Rocks has more than 20 Gulf beach access points and an unlimited number of water activities. Enjoy swimming with dolphins, feeding stingrays or acting as trainer for a day at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, just a 15-minute scenic, coastal drive north. The greater goal at CMA is conservation, but visitors are encouraged to get up close and personal with the dolphins, pelicans, green sea turtles and otters.
Appreciate a more relaxing adventure when you head to Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve, a 9.3-acre wildlife habitat with native vegetation and wetlands. Explore the preserve’s park areas by taking an educational boardwalk tour. Check out the wildlife from designated observation decks and visit the nature center for a deeper look. With miles of walking trails, a dog park and fishing pier, a day at Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve will fly by.
Ensure you’ve got someplace comfortable to rest your head at night so you can relax and take advantage of the many activities Indian Rocks Beach has to offer. Book with IHG hotels in Indian Rocks Beach for world class amenities, comfortable rooms, and friendly staff who will help you do just that.
