The Port St. Lucie area is a popular vacation destination, although, it is not nearly as popular as some of the tourist destinations in Florida. As a result, this area has many uncrowded, peaceful beaches. This whole area of Fort Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Jensen Beach, Stuart and Palm City provide visitors with a laid-back atmosphere and plenty of recreational opportunities. Spend some time boating, swimming, fishing or just laying out on the beach.
The fishing is very good in the Port St. Lucie area. You can fish inshore, offshore and from the beaches here. Fishing charters are available for inshore and offshore fishing trips. The Indian River provides some excellent fishing for snook, redfish, trout, tarpon and other species. Offshore, anglers target a variety of fish such as dolphin, wahoo, cobia, kingfish, baracuda, amberjack, sailfish, marlin, snapper and grouper.
