The Town of Indiatlantic sits on a sliver of sand on Florida’s Space Coast between the Indian River and Atlantic Ocean. Iconic Highway A1A bisects the town: old Florida-style beach hotels and condominiums rest on one side of the divide while newer South-Florida-style restaurants and strip malls (and Starbucks!) stand on the other. But at its core, Indiatlantic is a Florida beach town.
Large waves, fueled in part by the Atlantic, break repeatedly onto shore. I could easily see throngs of surfers swimming out to ride their crested peaks whenever a storm approaches.
We woke up early to view the sunrise. Thin lines of orange filament lit the grey skies. The water lightened in color with each passing minute. Fishermen casted their lines while dogs ran in between them, playfully avoiding the waves which nipped at their paws. There were also a few industrious runners plying their strides on the wet, compacted sand. I was content to drink my quad venti soy latte and simply enjoy the morning.
We were surprised by Indiatlantic and its majestic beach. It is worthy of a visit and is a very fine place to unwind and relax a bit and see a few very nice sunrises.
