Indialantic is a town in Brevard County, Florida, United States. The population was 2,944 at the 2000 census. As of 2005, the population estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau is 3,076 [1].

Indialantic is bordered on the south by the town of Melbourne Beach and on the north by unincorporated Brevard County.
