Indian Rocks Beach

Welcome to Indian Rocks Beach

Legend has it that Florida's beach community of Indian Rocks Beach reputedly got its name when a native medicine man miraculously healed his chief with the waters from a natural sulfur spring believed to have been located in Kolb Park across from Indian Rocks Beach City Hall. Early settlers seeing the Indians on their way to the "rock encircled spring" would say, "The Indians are on their way to the rocks."
