|| Nettles Island Lifestyle
Nettles Island is a 130 acre Ocean to River gated resort community of approximately 1550 homes located on beautiful Hutchinson Island, an unspoiled barrier island off Florida's Treasure Coast. Here on the Island, the clean & uncrowded Atlantic Ocean beaches stretch as far as the eye can see. To the west the Intracoastal Waterway (locally Indian River) broadens to one mile as it passes through the St. Lucie Inlet.
Our ocean to river resort is serene and secluded, yet everything South Florida has to offer is at your fingertips. Golf courses, live theater & concerts, various sporting events, shopping & fabulous restaurants are all nearby.
Nettles Island has many amenities and lots of varied social activities to enjoy: two sparkling clean, heated pools and spas--one is Oceanfont with cabana, snack bar, & private access to the unspoiled Atlantic Ocean beach; the second is right on the Indian River (Intracoastal Waterway) and features a shaded cabana area, locker rooms, fitness center, snack bar, and spectacular sunsets!
Nettles' amenities and activities also include a large and active clubhouse/theater, wireless computer access, lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard, waterfront bocce, mini golf, horseshoes, a private marina, kayak & golf cart rental, community boat ramp & fish-cleaning station, waterfront restaurant & snack bars, various specialty shops, post office, and library.
Some of Nettles' many clubs include travel, fishing, theater, book discussion, tennis, horseshoes, bocce, golf, pool aerobics, yoga, K-9 (pets), line dancing, gardening, men's & women's, yacht, cards, exercise, and many others. There are also various on site religious services.
Meet friends at sunset at the covered cabana for snacks and fun. Watch the manatees play from various waterfront spots open to all. Enjoy good times and good food at frequent waterfront barbeques sponsored by the Recreation Department.
