With its collection of antique shops, funky eateries, art galleries and nature parks, Hobe Sound is the picture-perfect definition of beach town charm. Take a drive along the iconic Bridge Road, a scenic drive in Hobe Sound, where beautiful banyan trees lead the way to Hobe Sound Beach, Hobe Sound Wildlife Refuge and Blowing Rocks Preserve. Does it look familiar? You’ve probably seen it before, as the drive as been photographed and painted countless times before. But you just can’t beat the real thing!
Peek through a rare window into Florida’s natural history, and see what South Florida’s Barrier islands looked like a century ago. Blowing Rocks is named for its rocky Anastasia limestone shoreline, the largest on the U.S. Atlantic coast. Catch a glimpse of one of Florida’s rarest surviving landscapes, an intact Florida dune habitat with beach sunflower, bay cedar, sea grape, and sea oats.
Maybe it should go without saying, but a Martin County beach vacation just isn’t complete without a trip (or several) to our beautiful beaches! Soak up the sun, and enjoy tons of fun, on Stuart, Bath Tub and Jensen Beach, the guarded beaches on Hutchison Island. There are also several more unguarded beaches on Hutchison Island where you can watch fisherman from the shore. Why pick just one spot? Try them all and find your favorite!
Want something more active than sunbathing, but more low-key than surfing? The best way to “sight-sea” is on a stand-up paddleboard, a.k.a. SUP for short. Take a leisurely SUP trip up the waterway and see if you can spot the manatees, dolphins, or even the occasional sea turtle. Catch a sunset, and enjoy the best views you’ll find anywhere. Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro, there’s no better place in South Florida (or dare we say, the world) for SUPing than Martin County.
Enjoy lunch and dinner at a local landmark. Conchy Joe’s is a South Florida tradition with a colorful history, from roaring parties in the 1920s, to rum running from the Bahamas. And the food is delicious, with exciting menu items served in a playful, tropical bar setting. Conchy Joe’s is a must-see on your Martin County trip.
