Of course the very best way to have a coastal Easter is to spend it on the beach. Here in Indian Rocks Beach, you can enjoy all of the holiday fun with the bonus of having breathtaking beaches, sunny shorelines, swaying palm trees, warm salty breezes, sparkling Gulf of Mexico waters, vibrant sunsets and so much more.

Easter wouldn't be Easter without an Easter egg hunt for the kids. Hosted annually in Indian Rocks, the IRB Easter Egg Hunt at the Nature Preserve is a family-favorite. It's especially for kids ages 10 and under with everything you'd expect from an egg hunt and more! Kid-friendly activities include games, prizes for the coveted golden eggs, a balloon twister, and of course the Easter Bunny himself is on-hand at this locally loved Easter event. The Easter Egg Hunt event is free for everyone and refreshments are offered, too.

This year's Indian Rocks Beach Easter Egg Hunt is on Saturday, March 26 at 10a.m. Don't forget to bring your own basket!

Easter Baskets, Beach Style

Easter Baskets in Beach Style with Seashells
Since you're bringing your own basket to the IRB Easter Egg Hunt, why not hit the beach first and collect some of your favorite things. Why? You can make your own signature beach-style Easter basket for the event. Spruce up an old basket or make a plain one come to life by gluing your favorite Indian Rocks Beach seashells on the outside. Instead of the traditional green grass, fill it with wheat grass or raffia from the local craft store. Hey, if you happen to find a palm tree frond or two lying around, you can use that too.

Voila! A beautiful beachy Easter basket that's uniquely yours. If you're vacationing during the Easter holiday, what a great memoir to take back home with you. And of course, the kids will love it.

If you really want to go wild, trade your Easter basket for a beach bucket. You can decorate it with decals, paint, lettering, and seashells in true coastal Easter style. You're only limited by your imagination.

Egging You On

Easter Eggs and Starfish Decorations
Whether you're looking to decorate your Indian Rocks Beach vacation rental during your holiday stay or you're looking to bring a touch of the coast to your Easter celebration at home, there are some really easy ways to bring that beach look to your Easter eggs. If you want to have your Easter eggs last awhile or for a keepsake, pick up some ceramic or terra cotta eggs from the craft store. For some of these ideas, plastic eggs will work too.

  • Decorate eggs with fishing net for a nautical look.
  • Marbleize your eggs for an ocean feel.
  • Brush glitter with glue over your marine-colored eggs for a shimmering effect that mirrors the sparkling Gulf of Mexico waters.
  • Glue twine, raffia or colored yarn from top to bottom around your eggs for coastal flair.
  • Use lettering on the eggs of your favorite beach words: sand, sea, sun... the options are endless.
  • Paint seashells, anchors, starfish, you name it, right on the Easter egg for picture-perfect reminders of the beach.
  • Mix and match your eggs with starfish, sand dollars, seashells in a basket for instant coastal Easter decorations.

Beachy Easter Hat

Just like creating your own beachy Easter basket is fun, so is decorating your own Easter hat with a touch of coastal flair. You can make it simple, like a straw hat with a touch of tropical flowers. Or you can go wild and make some over-the-top beach-style Easter hats. Make it a family affair by having everyone create their own, then have a contest to see who has the most creative, funniest, most unique, or whatever categories you choose. It could be your new Easter on the beach tradition!

We really hope you're inspired to spend your Easter on the beach or at least bring a touch of the coast into your home this holiday.
