Martin County - Things To Do

In Martin County, nature is the greatest amenity of all. The Treasure Coast offers unique and intriguing attractions such as Florida’s oldest and only remaining lifesaving station Gilbert’s House of Refuge, a world-class oceanographic center and midnight sea turtle egg-laying expeditions. The city of Stuart, the county seat of Martin County, is also known as The Sailfish Capital of the World. So, of course, great fishing abounds throughout miles of peaceful beaches and coastlines. Including the hundreds of golf courses throughout the county, we keep the outdoor fun going all year long! Additionally, you’ll find charming streets lined with galleries, restaurants, cafes, high-end fashion boutiques and gift shops all in a rustic, laid-back old Florida atmosphere. Discover Martin County, and take a journey through the Florida you didn’t know existed.

The historic structure has weathered many storms and provided needed shelter for shipwreck survivors, including those of the Georges Valentine, an Italian brigantine whose wreckage remains just 100 yards off the rocky shoreline, providing an ideal dive site.

The House of Refuge continues to withstand the test of time, while offering a fascinating look at a bygone lifestyle along the sea.

Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge is a coastal refuge bisected by the Indian River Lagoon into two separate tracts of land totaling over 1000 acres. The 735- acre Jupiter Island portion provides some of the most productive sea turtle nesting habitats in the United States. Hobe Sound Nature Center offers both on and off-site native wildlife presentations and field experiences to local areas. Nature trails allow for hikes on estuaries, barrier islands, and sand pine scrub. A highly popular event is the sea turtle walk program, held on warm, summer nights from the end of May through mid-July. Reservations are required, and the center begins taking them as early as April 1 each year.

With numerous thriving natural and artificial reefs along Martin County’s shores, the area truly lives up to its reputation as the “Treasure Coast.” Each reef offers a bounty of rich aquatic life, creating ideal locales for saltwater anglers and recreational divers. Offshore, the prevailing north current allows boaters to begin at the southern end of these sites and drift north across a two-mile stretch of diverse reef environments.

Martin County’s Artificial Reef Program offers over ninety-five outstanding sites for fishing and dive exploration – and the number continues to grow. There is no better way to appreciate our area’s natural treasures than to fish and explore these waters. We invite you to dive in!

This is a tough course to score well on, but it is fun to play. There are some sand bunkers on the course, but the main hazards are the lakes and wetlands that come into play on most of the holes. The front nine has young trees that haven't quite matured, and the back nine, the older of the two, has many pine trees lining its fairways. The greens are undulating and fast, and the fairways have a defined cut of rough, so shot accuracy is at a premium. The signature hole is #1, a 322-yard, par 4, requiring a blind approach shot over the "Dragon's Head" berm in order to reach the green. Par: 70 Holes: 18.
