An oceanfront jewel on the Treasure Coast

Separated from the Florida mainland by the Indian River, North Beach enjoys a privileged spot on a sandy barrier island jutting into the Atlantic Ocean. The crashing waves, clear blue waters, and pristine stretches of white sands make the area a haven for sun worshippers and those who love to play in the surf. Near the upscale city of Vero Beach, North Beach is part of Florida's Treasure Coast, named for the Spanish Treasure Fleet that sank off its shores in a 1715 hurricane. If you're lucky, a North Beach vacation rental could be a truly golden opportunity.

Hunt for treasure along Florida's Intercoastal Waterways

Sunken treasures are more than just things of lore along Florida's Treasure Coast. People still find remnants of the valuable loot today, so if you've ever wanted to try your hand at treasure hunting, this is your chance. If you prefer treasures of the modern variety, the Miracle Mile section of the barrier island's Ocean Drive is peppered with plenty of small specialty shops to keep you hunting. Head to the Atlantic shores for swimming, tanning, and some stellar sunrises. The sheltered waters of Indian River are perfect for boating, fishing, and nearly any water sport that suits your fancy.

Get up close and personal with Florida's flora and fauna

Whether you're a museum buff or a nature lover, there's plenty to keep you busy near your North Beach vacation rental. For a close encounter with pelicans, fish, dolphins, and manatees, head to Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge. Further immerse yourself in nature at the McKee Botanical Garden, or among the interactive exhibits and aquariums of the 64-acre Environmental Learning Center. Historic downtown Vero Beach is full of quirky shops and restaurants to explore. Save some time to visit the Vero Beach Museum of Art and learn more about the area's sunken treasures at the McLarty Treasure Museum.

Leave the winter coats behind, but don't forget the umbrella

You can kiss the snow goodbye at your North Beach vacation rental, where year round you'll see high temperatures in the 70s, 80s, and 90s (and sometimes even hotter). Summers are hot and humid, while winters are sunny and warm. You can expect to see rain all year, but especially during the summer months of June to September, when passing showers can be an everyday occurrence (and a perfect chance for a daily nap). December to March sees lows dip into the 50s, so bring a sweater for those early morning sunrises or evening strolls on the beach.

A wonderland of wildlife in the wetlands and waterways

Florida's Intercoastal Waterways are a haven for wildlife, most notably at the Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge, where you'll encounter more than 40 varieties of birds (not just the namesake pelican, though they're there, too), plus 200 species of fish, dolphins, bobcats, and otters. The refuge's waters are also home to endangered sea turtles and manatees. The inland rivers and lagoons are sheltered by the barrier island, whose white sands absorb the waves and strong sea breezes, and are a great spot to catch the sunrise.
