Treasure Island offers you a more family friendly environment with a short drive to major theme parks. This makes for the perfect family destination.

Here’s what others have to say about it…

“This was our second time to Treasure Island Beach. Love the beach here as its long and the water is shallow. Sand stays cool and water was perfect! Public beaches have concession stands and snacks as well as showers and restrooms. Everything you need for a great beach trip!”

“I have been coming to this area for 35 years. The beach is beautiful. The gulf typically doesn’t have the waves that the Atlantic side does unless there is a storm in the area. Very laid back, more family oriented. Lots of restaurants to choose from and many activities to entertain the young and old alike. About 2 hours to Orlando. Closest airport is Tampa or St Pete/Clearwater. Treasure Island will not disappoint!”

Indian Rocks Beach is a thin strip of beach surrounded by two different bodies of water. It’s possible that because of this, Indian Rocks is able to keep a stable climate like Miami, FL or Honolulu, Hi. It’s pretty safe to say that Indian Rocks only has 2 seasons… summer or spring. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
