5 Things to Do in Indian Rocks Beach During the Summer
1. Hangout at the Beach
It wouldn’t be a getaway to Indian Rocks Beach without soaking up the sun at one of our 27 beach accesses. Stay in one of our Gulf Front properties and access the beach right from your vacation rental! If you are looking for ways to have fun on the water, reserve watersports equipment like kayaks and paddleboards with Island Marine Rentals.
2. Family Fun at Splash Harbour Water Park
Splash Harbour Water Park offers the ultimate place for family fun in IRB during the summer! Attractions include waterslides, a lazy river, a splash zone, a sundeck for sunbathing, and a pool. After splashing at the water park, discover more family activities inside, such as gem mining, miniature golf, and game rooms.
3. Keep an Eye Out for Turtles
Turtle nesting season in Pinellas County is from May-October, so it’s essential to be cautious and aware of the ordinances in place during your summer visit. Keep the beach clean, remove obstacles from the shoreline, do not approach turtles, and turn off outside lights. Learn more about sea turtles in our area by visiting the Clearwater Marine Aquarium!
4. Explore the Great Outdoors
Enjoy the Florida summer weather by spending time in the great outdoors. The Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve offers nine acres of outdoor recreation, including a nature center, fishing pier, walking trails, and wildlife observation areas.
Discover even more wildlife at the Seaside Seabird Sanctuary, a wildlife rehabilitation center in Indian Shores. Stroll through the sanctuary and see nearly 100 birds and learn about Florida’s marine environment at the Environmental Education Center.
5. Enjoy Live Music, Great Food, & Sunset Views
Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores restaurants are the perfect places to end any summer day! Enjoy delicious seafood, sunset views, refreshing cocktails, and daily live music at Caddy’s Indian Shores, Jimmy Guana’s, The Original Crabby Bill’s, and JDs Restaurant.
