Florida’s coastline, one of the country’s largest, is visited by more than 120 million people each year. Each of Florida's coastal areas tout a name that describes something unique about it and our area, including Sebastian, Vero Beach and Fort Pierce, has been penned the “Treasure Coast,” but why? It’s actually quite literal, as revealed by many accounts of tourists and residents who have been fortunate to stumble upon real life treasure such as gold and silver coins along our beaches, the remains of a Spanish treasure fleet lost in a 1715 hurricane near the Sebastian Inlet. 

 

Although it’s possible, there is no guarantee that you will discover gold or silver coins on the Treasure Coast. You are, however, certain to discover an area rich in golden sands and untouched beaches. So soak in the sun and enjoy the infinite possibilities of your vacation on the Treasure Coast.
