Experience unparalleled natural beauty on the Florida Gulf Coast when you stay in one of our breathtaking Indian Shores vacation rentals! Bordered by the seaside communities of Indian Rocks Beach to the north and North Reddington Beach to the south, this laid-back beach town is located on the western edge of Tampa Bay and promises a vacation you'll remember for years to come.
Indian Shores is perfect for couples, families, and vacationers seeking relaxation and low-key fun, and anglers, sportsmen, and naturalists looking for great fishing, wildlife viewing, and convenient access to pristine coastal habitats.
Although it is a quiet coastal town, you'll find that there's plenty to do in Indian Shores! From charter boat fishing to shopping at the outlet malls, there's something for everyone. Enjoy a family-friendly outing at Smuggler Cove Adventure Golf, a Florida favorite where your whole family can practice their golf swings on a pirate-themed miniature golf course. If you're feeling more adventurous, rent a fishing guide for the day with FishTaxi Charters and head out into the Gulf’s emerald green waters to hook red snapper, grouper, amberjack, mahi-mahi, and many other fish species!
Stop by the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary and get a firsthand look at injured native seabirds (including egrets, herons, owls, seagulls, and much more!) that are rehabilitated and then released back into the wild.
The best part about staying in one of our Indian Shores vacation rentals is the convenient access to a number of uncrowded, beautiful, white sand beaches. Invite your friends, bring the family, or come with that special someone and let the tropical ocean breeze and warm gulf waters lull you into beachside bliss!
Indian Shores is a relatively small town, but the surrounding area boasts a number of exciting attractions that your whole family will love! Downtown Tampa is only 30 miles away and you'll find variety of restaurants, notable cultural experiences, and a vibrant nightlife in this bustling metropolis.
Take a 39-mile drive northeast to zoom down huge waterslides like the Colossal Curl and the Caribbean Corkscrew at Adventure Island or embark on a walking safari through the Edge of Africa exhibit featuring hippos, lions, hyenas, lemurs, crocodiles, meerkats and more exotic animals at Busch Gardens.
History buffs will love touring the Henry B. Plant Museum, a once operational hotel which was built by railroad magnate Henry Bradley Plant in 1888 and features ornate furnishings, beautiful tropical gardens, and Moorish architecture. Only 28 miles away, the museum is a fun and easy day trip from Indian Shores.
