Renowned for laid-back beaches and great dining, Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores are where you want to go if you want a quiet vacation that isn’t too far away from activity hubs like Clearwater Beach or John’s Pass. The quieter beaches here are perfect for those seeking serenity with a side of good food and drink.
Indian Shores, found along the Gulf of Mexico just west of St. Petersburg and Tampa, is home to the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, a non-profit agency dedicated to the care and release of injured birds native to the Gulf Coast.
A colourful bar and a high-end restaurant also epitomise the beach town of Indian Shores. Shoppers love the John’s Pass Village in nearby Madeira Beach.
Also don’t miss the nightly sunset celebration at Clearwater Beach Pier and be sure to visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of the famous movie star, Winter the Dolphin.
