Internationally, Miami’s beaches receive all the press and glamour. However, oftentimes locals, experts and connoisseurs prefer to travel north to one of the  Treasure Coast beaches. If you’re wondering why, there are a few reasons why this happens.


Dream beaches

Golden sands, swaying palm trees, blue waters rivalled only by the blue in the sky. It’s not only the description out of a postcard photo, but real landscapes along the Treasure Coast. Combine that with the great amount of sunny days and the tropical weather, and you won’t want to leave. Not only are the Treasure Coast beaches a natural beauty, they also host lots of nature. From seabirds to coral reefs, and even turtles who lay eggs in Hobe Sound and Jensen Beach, you can find a great variety of wildlife and reconnect with your natural side.


No crowd, no pollution

All of the above is great on itself, but when you add to that the fact that the crowd is minimum, you have the perfect beaches. The Treasure Coast is a tranquil area, with no large, tumultuous cities and few tourist conglomerations.
