    I will go by this place soon but I am fairly sure it is no longer there.... sorry to say!
    Purple Porpoise Raw Bar and Grille -- a good sports bar that shows ALL of the Florida Gators football games -- but not as good a deal as it was in 2002

    Favorite Dish: Buffalo Shrimp
    --- done with the sauce from "Buffalo wings" -- very tasty

    Unfortunately they no longer have a happy hour oyster special

    Indialantic is geographically a very small community with many inhabitants due to all of the condominiums.

    It is just a relaxed beach area, near Melbourne, FL, and only about an hour from Orlando.

    Thanks to the Town of Indialantic for the following:

    It all started in 1915 when Ernest Kouwen-Hoven moved to Melbourne and purchased a strip of beachside land lying between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean. He envisioned this property as becoming an exclusive beachside resort and indeed it did. This one-square mile became known as 'Indialantic-by-the-Sea' The first map of this area was recorded in 1916.

    In the 1920's rum-running off the coast of Indialantic was prevalent. It was during this time that the Indialantic Casino and the Indialantic Hotel were popular resorts with visitors from all parts of the world. The names were later changed to the Bahama Beach Club and the Tradewinds Hotel



    TODAY...Swimming, fishing, boating and surfing are favorite pastimes. Threatened and endangered sea turtles nest along the shore from May through October. The recently refurbished boardwalk offers a place to stroll along the ocean and the parks throughout the Town provide getaways from the day's routine.

    Designated a bird sanctuary in 1975 by a Town Council proclamation, the Town has taken measures to protect its abundance of animal species and plant life. Indialantic remains a natural, unspoiled paradise
