Barefoot Beach Resort
19417 Gulf Blvd, Indian Shores, Florida 33785
Indian Shores' Colorful Barefoot Beach Resort is a Condominium Community Across the Street from the Beach
On the southern end of Indian Shores, Barefoot Beach Resort, a condominium community, spreads across five acres and overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway. The development was built in the 1960s but has been updated and renovated.
The condos are in six separate buildings, each one two stories tall. Coconut palms and native flowering vegetation dot the grounds. Exteriors are pastel yellow, blue, green and more, giving Barefoot Beach Resort a tropical vibe. Home sizes range from about 750 square feet to 1,000 square feet with one to two bedrooms. A handful of residences face the water; others overlook a green space or a parking area. Some have a private patio. Interior features may include granite countertops, tile floors, ceiling fans and more.
Prices start in the low-$200,000s. Please verify this with a Realtor as prices are subject to change. The HOA fee pays for the amenities, trash pick up and sewer.
Residents enjoy a heated swimming pool with Intracoastal views, a clubhouse and a fishing pier. Boat slips are also for lease and for sale. The local trolley stops outside the clubhouse door, providing easy access up and down the island. Fine dining is next door at the Salt Rock Grill. The best amenity, though, is the sparkling white beach, which is just across the street.

Named Pascua Florida by Juan Ponce De Leon, the Sunshine State did not enter the Union until March 3, 1845. Balmy mild winters began attracting snowbirds to the state in the late 19th century. Retirees continue to flock to the state. It's not hard to see why tourism has become the leading industry.
International trade and citrus are also major contributors to the state's economy. Eighty percent of the nation's oranges and grapefruits are grown here, and 40 percent of all U.S. exports to Latin America flow through Florida.
Florida's landscape includes uplands and coastal plains. It contains more than 11,000 miles of waterways and about 4,500 islands spread across 10 acres.
The state has 1,250 golf courses, more than any other state in the Union. The 47 mile Pinellas Trail is the longest urban trail on the east coast. Orlando theme parks attract more visitors than any other theme parks in the U.S. The only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist is in National Everglades Park.
Florida, particularly the Keys and the Gulf Coast, were struck by Category 4 Hurricane Irma in early September, 2017. Towns will rebuild, perhaps this time with climate change in mind, making them safer and better equipped to handle major hurricanes going forward.
