Uniquely set along a quiet, pristine beach on tiny Hutchinson Island 72 kms from West Palm Beach, Vistana’s Beach Club is perfect for a relaxing break away from the daily grind amongst the beauties of Florida’s Treasure Coast. Two-bedroom villas are offered, with ensuites, fully equipped kitchens, flat-panel TVs, WiFi internet access, air conditioning and private balconies with sea views.
The island lies just offshore from Jensen Beach, and boasts six kilometres of beautiful beaches and several scenic harbours. The ocean is just a few steps away from the complex and a causeway connects the island and mainland. Amenities include an outdoor pool, kids’ pool, outdoor BBQ and picnic areas for BBQs, a full daily schedule of activities and evening entertainment and a nearby golf course.
Awarded Tripadvisor’s 2013 Certificate of Excellence for its stunning reviews, Vistana’s Beach Club is a prime destination for families, groups of friends and couples. Although the complex doesn’t have an in-house restaurant, popular eateries and bars are just a short walk away and a stroll across the causeway linking the island with the mainland brings visitors to charming Jensen Beach. The area is known for its regular cultural festivals, and all-day shopping trips to Palm Beach are offered. Horseback riding, local historic sites, hiking and biking along pretty nature trails, golf and other land-based outdoor activities and the delights of a wide variety of water sports are all close by this uniquely set resort and its upscale accommodation.
The neighbouring onshore town of Jensen Beach, once known as the world ‘Pineapple Capital’ is now the shopping and fine dining hub of Florida’s Treasure Coast. Malls, speciality shops and quirky boutiques provide retail therapy, and the cuisine here is seafood-heavy, delicious and matched by fine wines.
Jensen Sea Turtle Beach is well-known in the marine biologist community, and sees leatherback, loggerhead and green sea turtles arriving annually to nest. Favourites here are boat trips along the Treasure Coast with its barrier islands, sandbars, lagoons, inlets and superb natural beauty, and the Indian and St Lucie rivers wind through the forests backing the coastline.
The closest major commercial airport to Jensen Beach is Miami International with its direct flights from European air hubs. It’s a self-drive or pre-booked shuttle bus trip of just over two hours. Palm Beach International Airport is closer, just an hour away by road, but only offers domestic flights to major US cities, necessitating a transfer.
