Unique in so many ways, Hobe Sound sits in the most environmentally sensitive area of southeastern Martin County. Here you can discover an understated elegance. With its collection of antique shops, funky eateries, art galleries, and nature parks, Hobe Sound embodies the definition of small beach town charm.
Enjoy a relaxing day at Hobe Sound Beach or explore the gem known as Jonathan Dickinson State Park. Winding through the expansive park, the Loxahatchee River is Florida’s first federally-designated “Wild and Scenic River.” The park also offers both paved and off-road biking, equestrian and hiking trails, boating, canoeing, and kayaking along the river.
The Hobe Sound Nature Center, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting an environmental awareness in people of all ages. The Nature Center exhibit features over 20 native, live animals including snakes, crocodiles, and skunks.
Another must-see is Blowing Rocks Preserve. A boardwalk along the Indian River Lagoon features interpretive signs about the plants, wildlife, and environment.
