Hutchinson Island FL Real Estate
Hutchinson Island Florida real estate is located off the coast of Martin and St. Lucie counties, Florida. Hutchinson Island is a barrier island bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Indian River on the west and on the north by the Fort Pierce Inlet, which separates it from what is known in St Lucie County as North Hutchinson Island, or sometimes “North Beach.” North Hutchinson Island extends into Indian River County, but it is rarely called that north of the county line. In fact the Indian River county portion which extends to the Sebastian Inlet is usually called Orchid Island, although it is not a separate island.
On Hutchinson Island you will find white powder sands on unspoiled Atlantic Ocean beaches, it’s the home to the St. Lucie County Regional History Center, the St. Lucie County Marine Center featuring the Smithsonian Marine Ecosystems Exhibits as well as the National Navy UDT/SEAL Museum. The Martin County portion of Hutchinson Island South offers magnificent private communities.
