The quiet little town of Indian Shores averages just about a block in width and a mere 19 city blocks in length, but a ton of beauty is packed into this small community. The beaches are wide and pristine, with soft white sand and lovely sunset views. Parks and pavilions dot the landscape. At Town Square Nature Park, you can meander through lush mangroves on a boardwalk that traverses the natural landscape and ends at a fishing pier. Interested in picking up the pace, then perhaps check out the recreational activities offered through the Town of Indian Shores.
The Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, a non-profit agency dedicated to the care and release of injured birds, is located here. The public can visit any day to see native birds — pelicans, herons, owls, hawks, cormorants, and egrets – getting the care they need to be returned to the wild.
A variety of shops and restaurants amply serve the 1,420 permanent residents as well as the larger winter contingent who enjoy life here. Al fresco dining with a view of the water is an Indian Shoes treat not to be missed.
