SOUTH HUTCHINSON ISLAND

Eat, Drink & Enjoy the Outdoors

Dining & Nightlife

This vibrant and beachy community is quickly becoming Fort Pierce’s dining and entertainment district. Cruise along Seaway Drive and discover casual, open-air restaurants overlooking the inlet waterway. Enjoy the area’s best sunset view at On the Edge Bar & Grill, stop by Manatee Island Bar & Grill, visit local landmark – Archie’s Seabreeze on Highway A1A or get great panoramic views and cocktails at The Square Grouper. And for dinner, swing by Chuck’s Seafood for the best fried shrimp this side of the Mississippi.

Beaches & Outdoors

Drive south on Highway A1A and discover public access to perfect, isolated beaches on the east side and direct access to the Indian River Lagoon on the west side. Stop by Walton Rocks Beach and hunt for your perfect shell souvenir in the sand, launch a kayak at Little Mud Creek or wander through a peaceful mangrove trail at Bear Point Sanctuary.

Fishing

Gear up with your poles and bait for a day of fishing. The newly revitalized Jetty Park offers a fishing jetty popular for locals and visitors alike. Bring the camera for a great panoramic shot. After jetty fishing, head further south and set up shop for some surf fishing action along miles of uncrowded beaches or head across the street and find a handful of fishing piers on the lagoon. Into kayak fishing? The lagoon side of A1A offers several easy kayak launch sites to get you on the water in no time.
