Come Explore Paradise on the Treasure Coast’s Water
For the sportsman who loves to cast a line, the Treasure Coast is an angler’s paradise, located just 55 miles from the west end of the Bahamas. Known as the, “Sailfish Capital of the World,” by fishing enthusiasts, the Treasure Coast is world-renown for its laid back quality of life centered on beaches, boating, fishing and community. The St. Lucie estuary is the crossroads for the Intercoastal Waterway, where vessels can cross from the east side of Florida to the west across Lake Okeechobee.
Residents enjoy a wide variety of watersports from deep sea fishing, kayaking the barrier islands of the St. Lucie River estuaries, and paddle boarding over to the sandbars that dot the Intracoastal Waterway that runs from north to south on the Eastern Seaboard. The entire family will enjoy discovering playful porpoise, gentle manatee, star fish and other magnificent creatures native to the area.
An abundance of shoreline and natural beauty keeps generations of families from around the globe calling Stuart home. Miles and miles of waterways invite exploration and adventure. Catch a glimpse of a Florida lobster or large snook swimming the reefs at Bathtub Beach. Share the shoreline with sea turtles and hatchlings, and watch the tarpon swimming along the beach just yards away.
