Morning and Afternoon at the Beach
After breakfast, grab your sunblock and towels and head to the beach! Indian Shores is a smaller, more private beach with soft sand and beautiful ocean. You can tan in the sand or play in the waves with your significant other. You can even bring a frisbee or volleyball for a bit of action. Just don’t forget to reapply your sunscreen or you might end up a little worse for wear by day’s end.
A fun-filled morning at the beach is sure to work up an appetite. You can pack yourself a picnic lunch to share on the sand. Keep everything in a cooler, and your meal will be cool and delicious, After you eat, you can spend more time enjoying everything the beach has to offer, whether you want to tan more, play more, or swim more. If you’re looking to get out on the water and maybe even see some dolphins, Indian Shores offers boat trips you can book in advance.
Sunset Stroll Along Beach
When the day is coming to a close, your beach day date can keep going strong. As the sun sets over the beautiful gulf waters, you and your significant other can take a stroll along the beach. Dip your feet in the water as you walk or search for shells in the sand to make your walk even better. And of course, don’t forget to take pictures to memorialize a day well spent.
Dinner at Original Pizza or Salt Rock Grill
