Martin County Area Information and Resources
Martin County Area Information and Resources

Martin County

Martin County is located on Florida’s Treasure Coast. The name Treasure Coast comes from a number of Spanish galleons (1715 Spanish treasure fleet) that wrecked off the coast during the 17th and 18th centuries. Artifacts from those ships are still being recovered to this very day!!

Martin County is a water wonderland, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the East and Lake Okeechobee to the West. It is traversed North and South by the Intracoastal Waterway and East and West by Florida’s only cross state canal. These waterways create alternating sea and land breezes throughout the year to offer a pleasant sub tropic climate. Top notch water sports activities, world class golf courses and the best boating and fishing earn Martin County the title of “Sailfish Capital of the World”.

Martin County has over 20 Marina, 10 public boat ramps, 15 uncrowded public beaches and over 35 world class golf courses. Martin County also offers a charming blend of historical small towns with first class shopping and dining, art galleries, unique shops, theatres and museums.

Martin County's General Aviation Airport, known as Witham Field, is located in Stuart and provides charter air services and accommodating corporate jet aircrafts. For international travel, Palm Beach International Airport is an easy half-hour drive South. Orlando, Miami and Fort Lauderdale are about two to three hours away.
