Located on A1A, south of the St. Lucie Power Plant, 6.3 miles north of the Jensen Beach Causeway on Hutchinson Island. Off-leash dogs are permitted. We are told this is a nice, untouched beach with no life guards, the southern most beach in St. Lucie County. Offers bathrooms and showers, free parking, good fishing, covered picnic tables, and restrooms.
Web Mistress note: We spoke with St. Lucie county staff and they told us this is the only pet-friendly beach in the county. However, they said, St. Lucie is one of only two counties in Florida that offer annual permits for private horseback riding on the beach. We were also told there are presently no dog parks in the county.
"Great beach, just spent two weeks in the area visiting family, went to this beach six times! It was the best. My Italian Greyhound loved it, it was not crowded at all, two occasions we were the only people/dog on the beach, The most active day on the beach saw approximately five dogs and 10 people. This beach is fairly long, even on a busy day, it would offer lots of room to spread out. It is a must stop for me anytime I am in the area."Please Share...
