Must-See Spots on the Treasure Coast

St. Lucie River near Rivella, a new home community

Posted on: October 9, 2018

Every inch of Florida seems as if it were made to be photographed, from its breathtaking sunrises to its endless natural beauty – the Treasure Coast, filled with stunning views, is no exception. Check out our picks for the top spots to snap a picture!

The twisting paths the mangroves make in the waterways, the sight of a sea turtle shuffling onto a beach to lay her eggs, the image of the sun rising above the horizon are all sights that residents experience regularly here. The best thing about living here is that you don’t need to be in the right spot at the right time to get the perfect photo – opportunity is all around you.

House of Refuge

Once a lifesaving station for shipwrecked sailors who crashed onto the rocky shores of Gilbert’s Bar, the House of Refuge now serves as a museum detailing the lives of the station keepers and the House’s interesting history. Preservationists have worked to maintain the House’s 1876 design, with a charming aesthetic that makes it perfect for a quick snapshot. After you take a quick tour through the museum, step out back to see the rocky shores of Gilbert’s Bar and snap a shot of the dramatic scenery.

Fort Pierce Jetty

Where Fort Pierce Inlet and the Atlantic Ocean meet sits an oceanfront park that looks to be straight out of a painting. This is a preferred spot for the locals to swim, fish, and sit back and relax as they watch boats cruise by. Get here early one morning and make sure to have your phone handy to capture some amazing shots of the sunrise – they don’t call Fort Pierce the Sunrise City for nothing!

Stuart Riverwalk

This gorgeous boardwalk runs along the riverfront in downtown Stuart, a city known as the Sailfish Capital of the World. On any given day, you are sure to capture photos of fish jumping from the water as well as striking views of the Roosevelt Bridge. While you’re in Stuart, check out the Stuart Heritage Museum and discover the rich history of the area.

Club Med Sandpiper Bay

Yes, this resort is amazing, but that’s not what you’re snapping photos of! When you’re not enjoying the sand volleyball and the trapeze set offered at this resort, you’re sure to be taking photos of the St. Lucie River that flows right by! Keep your eyes to the sky – you might spot one of the ospreys or bald eagles that feed from the river. Make sure to save time to step away from the resort and explore the St. Lucie area – you’ll find places such as Sandpiper Bay Park, with its delicate scrub ecosystem, and the adorable Americana of Tradition Square.


Out of all of the locations on the Treasure Coast, scenic Rivella dominates with its natural beauty and perfect landscaping. The community is close to some of Florida’s most beautiful parks, waterfronts and wildlife. Its location in St. Lucie County puts residents near riverfront and historic spots such as Indian River Drive and downtown Fort Pierce. There are so many photo ops here – from nature to wildlife to scenic views of the serene river.

If you’re thinking about making the Treasure Coast home, you’ll definitely want to consider Rivella when searching for your dream home. The community rests on the edge of the St. Lucie River, with easy access to outdoor recreation like kayaking, fishing or paddleboarding. Your new residence will be ideally located just a short drive from some of the area’s best golf, beaches and entertainment as well as dozens of historic sites, parks and museums where you’ll learn about the rich history of the area. Homes at Rivella will range in size from 3 to 6 bedrooms, with select homesites available right on the river with the option for a private dock. Signature series homes start in the mid-$300s, and estate homes are priced from the mid-$500s to over $1 million, some with custom floorplan options. Call 772-206-2900 or visit RivellaFL.com for more information. You can register to get a copy of the community brochure, highlighting the unique Treasure Coast waterfront lifestyle and all of the options available for your new dream home. And you’ll get an invitation to our model grand opening in the spring of 2019.
