About Stuart

Treasure Coast takes its name from Spanish galleons which were shipwrecked off the coast here in the 18th century during a hurricane. The galleons were said to be carrying huge quantities of treasure in the form of gold and silver, some of which has been recovered.

Modern-day Stuart is compact and walking is the easiest way to explore this vibrant small city. It’s just a short walk across the bridge to the hip town of Jensen, and there are plenty of stores, museums, galleries and restaurants in Stuart to pass the time.

On the menu you’ll find everything from Caribbean and Floribbean cuisine to international dishes – and dining alfresco here is a must! The seafood here is fantastically fresh, and you’ll find many restaurants focus on using seasonal ingredients from local farms and producers on their menus.

What to do

Relax on the golden sandy beaches of the Treasure Coast – the best beaches are Bathtub Beach, The Stuart and Jensen Beach, where you can also surf, or go fishing at Causeway Park.

It’s just a short stroll across the bridge to downtown Jensen with its stories, galleries and arty vibe, or you could spend the day exploring downtown Stuart. Visit the Stuart Heritage Museum, housed in the oldest commercial building in the county, catch a jazz concert, play or musical at the 1920s-style Lyric Theater, or visit the Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast in Jensen, with interactive activities for all ages.

There are several parks worth visiting in the area, too, including Shelton Park with its boardwalks and picnic areas and Jonathan Dickinson Park, where you can go boating or kayaking.
