The entirety of Florida has a reputation for being the ultimate outdoor destination, but no area deserves the title better than the Treasure Coast. From when sailors first came upon the land in the early 1500s to when the first gold coins were dug up from Pepper Park, boaters of all ages and stages have come to the Treasure Coast’s shores to try their luck in the waters.
St. Lucie River
Flowing south to Martin County, the St. Lucie River is one of the many ways that local residents gain sustenance from the water and have fun on it. The North Fork of the St. Lucie River hosts wading egrets and blue crabs that make their way through the mangroves. The St. Lucie River itself connects to the Okeechobee Waterway, which many boaters have used to cross the state in a matter of hours. For those not planning to cross the state of Florida, the St. Lucie River is great for fishing, swimming, and boating.
Calmer than its cousin in Fort Pierce yet just as fun, the Stuart Sandbar is where the residents of Martin County get together for a fun day under Florida’s sunshine. Near enough to Sansprit Park to make a day of visiting it, guests here enjoy fishing, swimming, and snorkeling nearby Sailfish Flats to spy local underwater species.
All offshore fishing is great, but the offshore fishing on the Treasure Coast is what fish stories are made of. Local hobby and career fishers each have their accounts of battles done with giant sailfish, dorado the size of a small child, and even the occasional shark that call the waters of the Atlantic Ocean home. Many residents take their own boats out on the water, but the area hosts plenty of fishing charters for fishers to enjoy.
Do you need any more proof that the Treasure Coast is the best place to enjoy the waterfront? We didn’t think so! You want to be as close, so you have more time to learn of the area’s best fishing spots, what bait the local species respond best to, and how to best increase your fishing luck here.
If you are thinking about making the move to a waterfront community, one hidden gem that you may want to check out is Rivella, on the Treasure Coast. This gated community by GroundStone Homes rests on the edge of the St. Lucie River where it comes together with the North Fork, offering residents easy access to all of the activities that come along with waterfront living – not to mention some stunning views.

Your new home will be ideally located just a short drive to 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 area’s rich history.
