Orchid Island Natural Beauty

You won’t believe the natural beauty at Orchid Island

Posted on: March 3, 2020

Orchid Island is a place of true beauty and natural wonder. Perfectly situated between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean, Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club is a hidden mecca for local wildlife. A variety of natural neighbors call this place home and the members here are committed to protecting the area’s natural beauty. From its status as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary to its pristine private shore, the Club recognizes that its animal neighbors, like turtles, white pelicans, and otters, are as much part of the community as the residents themselves.

One reason why Orchid Island has so many animal visitors is because of its location. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River, it boasts a mile of private beach and it’s not uncommon to see dolphins swimming in the clear greenish-blue water or sandpipers scouring along while strolling the shoreline. Come May through October, many loggerhead turtles call this beach home and lay their eggs as it’s one of the best places in the world for turtle hatchlings.

The Indian River is known as one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems in the world and this natural neighborhood is home to many different species of fish, birds and so much more. From the red mangroves that hug the shoreline to the seagrass beds that lie under the surface, the wildlife here is unmatched. Rare white pelicans and rosette spoonbills are known to call this place home as well as friendly manatees.

And not to be left out, the golf course at Orchid Island is also home to many varieties of wildlife. From playful otters to birds such as the white pelicans and ospreys, members here enjoy the daily sightings of the unique wildlife. The Club has also installed specialty bird boxes throughout the course and many new “members” are born here each year – including screech owls.

Orchid Island works hard to preserve a way of life not only for the natural neighbors who live in the area but for the people who live here as well. Members and residents enjoy the convenience of a golf cart lifestyle. Traveling the community via golf cart makes getting to any of the amenities a fun and enjoyable experience, including the West Indies, styled private Beach Club, which overlooks a private beach just for residents and their families to take pleasure in.

This private community is committed to providing an extraordinary level of service. Golf here is unparalleled, as the Arnold Palmer-designed, 18-hole course is not only revered as one of the best in the region but also considered a picturesque nature walk throughout this unique habitat.

Luxury residential properties range from the $800s to over $10 million and include custom estate residences, courtyard homes, cottage, or oceanfront condominiums.
