About Sailfish Point
Stretching from Lake Okeechobee to the Atlantic, Martin County, Florida originated along the temperate coastal waters. The county has been home to the finest Florida oceanfront property since its beginning. The Indian River, part of the Intracoastal Waterway, served as the “road” that took Florida citrus and pineapples to market in the early agrarian days. When the Florida East Coast Railway became the primary mode of shipping, Martin County turned to fishing and tourism for the development of the area.
An Island Paradise for Everyone
Waterfront Golf, Private Beaches, Marinas and Fine Dining
Today, Martin County is a paradise for golfers, beach lovers, and fishers. Dozens of golf courses, some designed by legends such as Jack Nicklaus, Chi Chi Rodriguez, and Tom Fazio dot the landscape. In fact, Sailfish Point is home to a private Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course. The miles of lakefront, riverfront, and oceanfront mean miles and miles of spectacular beaches, including Bathtub Beach, named one of the Top 10 Family Friendly Beaches by Trip Advisor. Adventurers will enjoy diving off the coast for buried treasure reportedly lying on the ocean bottom in these waters.
More Reasons to Love Florida Waterfront Living
From area marinas, anglers take to the waters from long before sunrise until well into the night for both freshwater and saltwater catch. And many area restaurants serve fresh local fish in just-off-the boat specialties. The St. Lucie Canal connects the Indian River to the area’s largest freshwater lake—Lake Okeechobee—making long stretches of waterways navigable for boaters and fishers and giving them access to the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Shopping in Martin County offers a wide array of choices from small boutiques and galleries to trendy shops and upscale stores in local malls. Local zoning ordinances preserve the charm—and the views—of the area by prohibiting buildings over four stories high.
With all that the Florida coast area has to offer, it is no wonder that some of the most luxurious Florida waterfront property available in the country is right here in Martin County.
