Back by popular demand! The small little city located on the east coast with an everlasting moto of “The greatest little city in Florida!” who could ever resist? Indian Harbour Beach, Florida is a part of the Palm Bay/Melbourne area in Brevard County with a total population around 9,000 people.
What makes Indian Harbour Beach so inviting? Maybe it’s because not many people know about it or maybe because the economy is thriving in this small beach community. We did some digging and were able to discover a lot of reasons why people love this city. Keep reading to explore just a few of the many things that make Indian Harbour Beach so great.
1. Friendly Small Town Feel
So it’s not quite the Cheers bar where everyone knows your name but it is really small, at just over 2 square miles
your neighbors and friends are never more than a couple of miles away(literally). Also, considering the geographical location of the city the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River are just a stone’s throw away. To further the point of this being a great caring city, they have a fire department that is 100% volunteer consisting of over 30 members.
2. Great Demographics
As most small beach communities get judged to be “retirement” cities the demographics of this city support typical
working families. The average age is right at 50 years old with an estimated household income of around $52,000 per year compared to the entire state which is about $6,000 less. The estimated median house or condo value is around $180,000 compared to the entire state of $150,000, this seems high in comparison but if you consider most of this property would be consider “beach front” it is easily justified.
3. Good Location
The ideal part about being in a small town with great economics and plenty of spots to fish and boat is the location away from heavily populated areas but yet still right down the street from everything you would want. For example there is Florida Institute of Technology just 7 miles away or even Patrick Air Force Base is just 6 miles away. Cocoa beach is just 11 miles away with even more opportunity for such attractions like the Merritt Square Mall, Brevard Zoo, Ron Jon’s Surf Shop, and Port Canaveral. This is just a small list of what is located right around Indian Harbour Beach.
If you are looking for a very safe, quiet and affordable beach city this may be your best bet! There are plenty of homes available to rent or buy along with condos and townhomes. You will be surrounding yourself with a great community off the beaten path for surreal Florida beach living.
