The Ocean Harbor complex has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Seniors will appreciate an active and neighborly environment.

Beaches

Hutchinson Island, is one of the most popular beach destinations of the Treasure Coast, located just north of Palm Beach on the Atlantic Ocean. Seventy miles of excellent beaches and laid-back, old Florida ambiance make for an idyllic beach resort vacation.

Water Activities

Golf

Ocean Estates is a fabulous place to enjoy a golf vacation with no less than 20 championship style golf courses within a 40 minute drive.

Fishing

Great surf fishing for Bluefish, Pompano and other species right on our beach during the winter months. Excellent fishing at the South Jetty at Fort Pierce Inlet also.

The PP Cobb Bridge which connects S. Hutchinson Island with the town of Fort Pierce also has 2 catwalks which offer excellent Indian River fishing as well. There is also great fishing 10 minutes north on the Little Jim Bridge on the causeway to North Hutchinson Island.

Grapefruit League Baseball

Ocean Estates is within a half hour drive of the Los Angeles Dodgers (Vero Beach) and the New York Mets (St. Lucie West) Spring Training Camps

In addition, once spring training ends in early April, the minor league affiliates of both teams (Vero Beach Dodgers & St. Lucie Mets) play a full season of Class A Florida League baseball at these same sites from April to mid-September. Most of these minor league games are played at night and are very inexpensive. You can find discount coupons for many of the Mets games in many convenience stores and in the local newspapers. Although you've probably never heard of most of the players, it's a very enjoyable way to spend an evening. Other Tourist Attractions:
