Experience the seaside Town of Stuart and Martin County


The east coast of Florida is famed for its flamboyant and glamorous lifestyle which may well be true in places but there is a region which is accessible to all of that but the quality of life is far more demure and sophisticated. My name is Mark Thomas and I'm in Martin County where affluent sandy barrier islands and quaint civilized small towns put more of an emphasis on the importance of family life and leisure in a region blessed with an endless summer.


Martin County is located in a geographically blessed region where beautiful landscape makes way to the azure oceans of the Straits of Florida. The area offers clear protected by way of large inlets and Intracoastal waterways for recreation and pleasure including boating, fishing, swimming and paddle boarding which in turn allow you to fully enjoy the incredible marine life. The St Lucile River and estuary are considered an ecological jewel of the treasure coast and a central to the health and well-being of the surrounding communities. At the heart of the region you find the town known as the Sailfish Capital of the World which is frequently cited as one of the best small towns to visit in the United States due to its unique location, protected yet on a peninsular with superb access to the water.


The pretty town of Stuart is perfectly situated to enjoy the many delights of Martin County. With a quaint downtown and easy access to beautiful sandy beaches, golf and of course the water by way of marinas like this one.


The region is home to many small towns and places of interest. The barrier island of Hutchinson Beach supplies miles of quiet sandy beaches, beautiful homes as well as wonderful oceanfront restaurants such as Pietros where fine dining meets spectacular vistas. It is also home to the Florida oceanographic Coastal Center and the Elliot museum with exhibits a range of exhibits designed to entertain the whole family. The southern tip of the island is the exclusive gated community of Sailfish point where luxury homes and wonderful leisure facilities combine to deliver an uncompromising ocean lifestyle. The town of Jensen beach offers a family friendly environment with a pretty downtown, the children's museum of the treasure coast and Riverside Park as well as playing an important part in local ecology with the Sea turtle beach protecting loggerhead, leatherback and green sea turtle nests.


Hobe sound is the home of many well-known celebrities for good reason. Surrounded by state parks, beautiful beached, golf courses and the protected Intracoastal you find spectacular estates and affluent communities enjoying the benefits of this unique location.


Martin County is the quintessential mix of the finest points of the Floridian lifestyle. The tropical climate and clear waters deliver endless recreation and the close proximity to Miami and Palm Beach allow you to be part of a world famous cultural experience but then return home to a place of tranquility, beauty and relaxation. When looking for the perfect location to enjoy this wonderful part of the country I suggest Martin County may well be the answer.
