VERO BEACH

The beaches in Vero Beach are part of Florida’s Treasure Coast. Vero’s main public beach is known as South Beach, accessible at the eastern end of Causeway Boulevard, State Road 656. It is a very large, guarded beach that is used for sports. There are two volleyball courts and space to play other sports. There are two pavilions with barbecues and a bathroom with vending machines.

Another public beach is Humiston Park, in Vero’s Central Beach Business District. Humiston is a guarded beach. It has a playground and boardwalk.

Jaycee Park is adjacent to Conn Beach which is guarded and has a boardwalk extending southward approximately 2/3 of a mile along Ocean Drive. Jaycee Park has about fifteen pavilions, all with barbecues. It has a small playground and a long boardwalk.

The unguarded beach between Conn and Humiston is frequently used by skim boarders, fishermen, and occasionally by surf boarders although the surf is rarely high enough for extensive surfing.

Vero Beach also has other public access trails and walkways with beach access.

Water recreation in the Indian River Lagoon

The Indian River Lagoon, passing through Vero Beach, forms a significant portion of the Intracoastal Waterway, and is a hub for boating, fishing, water skiing, and other small-craft waterborne activities. Sheltered from the open ocean, the Indian River area of Vero has a number of public and private marinas and boat launch facilities.

Bridge

Vero Beach is home to the seventh largest (face-to-face) bridge club in North America, The Vero Beach Duplicate Bridge Club. People often move to Vero Beach to play Bridge as games are available daily, not only at the Vero Beach Bridge Center but in numerous other clubs in the area.
