Over the past few months, many of us have been reevaluating what we value most in life. Our homes, beautiful surroundings, and above all, our health. These events have also made us appreciate the beauty surrounding us – the architecture, design, and surroundings of our homes. Orchid Island offers homeowners a private club community in a pristine natural environment, and there are many reasons why so many homebuyers chose to live here. Located on Florida’s Atlantic coast, this cherished club community offers residents over a mile of private beachfront and the community is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River. With its gorgeous natural location, West-Indies style homes, and resort-style amenities, it’s easy to see why. Take a look at five favorite outdoor things to do on Orchid Island:
1. The Beach.
The lovely Treasure Coast shines as one of the most pristine shorelines on the Atlantic coast. Orchid Island’s members enjoy a one-mile stretch of beach that’s very secluded. The private oceanfront Beach Club offers a relaxing retreat that rivals the world’s top resorts. Enjoy culinary delicacies, or sip a tropical drink with friends. Orchid Island also has oceanfront condominiums and estate homes that are some of the finest in Florida.
2. Private Championship Golf
Orchid Island is a championship golf community (and it’s a stone’s throw from the ocean). The renown Arnold Palmer-designed championship course provides a challenging experience that never disappoints, yet very playable for members of all skill levels. Golfers revel in the myriad of wildlife on the course. You never know what you’ll encounter.
3. Coastline Explorations.
Orchid Island borders the Intracoastal Waterway, making it an ideal place for paddle boarding and kayaking. Explore this coast from a water perspective. A new kayak pier was just completed so members can launch right from the neighborhood. Enjoy the vistas and sounds of the seabirds, and you might even see manatees or a dolphin or two.
4. Nature Sanctuary.
Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club is a Certified Audubon Sanctuary with one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems in the world, and the club remains committed to preserving its beauty. This coast is home to more than 1,500 wildlife species, including manatees, otters, ospreys, white pelicans, roseate spoonbill, and leatherback turtles. At Orchid Beach, humans and wildlife exist in complete harmony, making it the destination to visit.
Orchid Island features eight Har-Tru courts, including an exhibition court, for players of all levels.
