The Secret is Finally Out: The Coast is Clear in Martin County, Florida

STUART, Fla., April 19 /PRNewswire/ — The secret is out: As Spring begins to blossom and winter residents return north, now is the time for visitors to enjoy the 18 clean, uncrowded, sunny beaches of Martin County, Florida. As part of the Treasure Coast, Martin sprawls along the Atlantic Ocean between Miami and Orlando, only 30 minutes’ drive north of Palm Beach.

“Spring and summer are a great time to vacation here,” said Terri Monaghan, director of tourism. “Martin County is virtually undiscovered. It offers a new experience even for those who have vacationed in Florida many times.”

Visitors may choose from quaint guest rooms at bed and breakfast inns or cozy, tropical studio apartments, riverside cottages, deluxe boutique hotels, motels, oceanfront condominiums, golf villas, and of course, luxury marina and beach resorts.

No matter where in Martin County you choose to stay, it is always just steps away from a beach, marina or a dozen designer golf courses. Known as the Sailfish Capital of the World, offshore and inshore fishing is unsurpassed with an abundant supply of more than 600 species of salt and fresh water fish. Canoeing, kayaking, birding and biking are also popular in this unspoiled retreat.

According to Monaghan, the Treasure Coast area features attractions for the entire family, including the prominent Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center with hands-on exhibits and activities and Bathtub Beach, a shallow ocean lagoon formed by an offshore reef that is perfect for snorkeling. She added that shopping and dining in Martin County’s charming small towns provide the authenticity and uniqueness travelers appreciate.
