Although Orchid Island is known for its year-round active lifestyle, the Florida golf and beach club community is also home to winter residents desiring to enjoy sunny weather, pristine ocean-to-river views, and the company of warm and welcoming friends. Now, for some of our snowbirds, flying to this private oceanside paradise just got easier. Breeze Airways has officially begun a series of direct flights from Vero Beach Regional Airport to key cities in the northeast. Let’s take a closer look.

Seamless Connectivity to Vero Beach

Located just 12 miles from Orchid Island, Vero Beach Regional Airport’s new cooperation with Breeze Airways has expanded the airport’s reach, providing nonstop flights from Vero Beach to Hartford, Connecticut; Westchester, New York; and Norfolk, Virginia. With a commitment to providing air service excellence to the surrounding community, these new flight options create a simplified travel experience for Orchid Island Members away from the hustle and bustle of the larger international airports.

While Orchid Island Members enjoy their slice of secluded oceanfront paradise, the Florida golf community is just a short drive away from numerous serene escapes. The 18-acre McKee Botanical Gardens is a wild place of natural beauty, home to more than 10,000 colorful native plants and exotic species as well as one of Florida’s largest collections of water lilies. The Vero Beach Museum of Art is the nation’s largest art museum created by private funds, featuring curated exhibits, film screenings, lectures, seminars, a film library, and art classes for every age. Just across the street, Riverside Theatre is a cherished destination for Orchid Island Members to see a show, with Tony-award winning performances, stand-up comedy, a children’s theater, and the local favorite “Howl at the Moon” dueling piano cabarets. Downtown Vero Beach and Ocean Drive are also filled with casual and fine dining, boutique shopping, and more for residents to explore.

A Private Beach & Golf Club Community on Florida’s Treasure Coast

Nestled on a barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River, Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club enjoys a beautiful natural setting that is second to none. Here, pristine natural environments and world-class amenities converge with a welcoming culture to create a renowned private golf and beach club lifestyle. The Arnold Palmer-designed golf course is the beloved centerpiece of the community and was the proud host of the 2018 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur Championship. Certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, every turn within this par-72 course welcomes exciting views of natural seaside landscapes teeming with wildlife. The West Indies-style Beach Club is a social place designed for both fitness and leisure, with a resort-style pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, eight Har-Tru tennis courts, pickleball courts, multiple dining venues, and a full-service salon and spa.

A Premier Collection of Golf, Riverfront, and Oceanfront Homes

Each of Orchid Island’s 375 homes surrounds Members in the best of Florida’s natural beauty. With many homes located directly on the water or overlooking Orchid Island’s championship golf course, each home features West Indies architectural designs, panoramic natural vistas, and the secluded privacy of living in a gated oceanfront golf community. Luxurious oceanfront condominiums and oceanfront estates are spacious and bright with open Atlantic Ocean views. A wide array of single-family riverfront estates offer open Indian River views and many feature private docks. Golf course homes and cottages are tucked away on private cul-de-sacs and winding streets to maintain open views of the lush fairways and sparkling lakes of its distinctive Arnold Palmer course.

With demand for this highly sought-after community at an all-time high, inventory is limited at Orchid Island.
