Indian Rocks Beach is known as “Florida’s Safest Beach”

Indian Rocks Beach reputedly got its name from the pilgrimage of Indians who came to the area to bathe and drink the healing waters from the springs. These same artesian wells still run under the ground of Sunshine Cozy Cottages.

Legend has it that the land is protected by Indian spirits and that is why the beach is known as Florida’s safest beach.


Here at Indian Rocks Beach you can laze the days away on miles of fine white, sandy, pristine beaches or enjoy the numerous parks and recreational facilities. Nearby there are tennis courts, basketball courts, a leash-free dog park, a ball field and a state of the art skateboard park. There are numerous family-oriented events and festivals throughout the year, such as the Fall Arts Festival, Oktoberfest and “Beauty & the Beach”.

In this quaint seaside resort community of only about 4,000 permanent residents, you will find dozens of shops, restaurants and fun things to see and do. It is a resort town where family fun mingles with the mellow leisure of a peaceful seaside vacation that soothes your senses.

Disney World is less than a two-hour drive away. The Crystal River where you can swim with the manatees is about an hour away. And Clearwater, Tampa and St. Petersburg are even closer should you want to visit Busch Gardens, the Dali Museum, the Botanical Gardens, or any one of our many local attractions while staying at our inexpensive Sunshine Cozy Cottage vacation rental–”your home away from home.”

Costal Living Magazine names Indian Rocks Beach as the #2 Romantic Seaside Getaway in the U.S. just behind Honolulu, Hawaii. We are also listed as one of the most affordable beaches in the country.
