On the Treasure Coast, the beaches are an integral part of our lifestyle. When it comes to beachfront, we have the rare blessing of both quality and quantity.
We enjoy an incredible 70 miles of beaches year-round, with over 40 public beach parks and many more private and public beach accesses. We also enjoy ocean-side experiences so spectacular that it is difficult to completely describe in words.
On one of our many sunny days, with clear blue skies above, gentle breezes blowing all around, and the gentile sounds of the surf in the background, it seems as if there is not a more glorious place in the world. You’ll see people enjoying long, leisurely walks along the beach, some in search of shells, and children having the time of their lives playing in the surf and sand.

There is always a quiet spot to read a good book or just relax in your favorite beach chair. Time stands still as you share the warmth of the sun and the refreshing splash of the Atlantic waters with the other beach lovers. Visitors often tell us that the beaches are more beautiful than they could have imagined.
