Vero Beach Hotel & Spa, located on Florida’s Treasure Coast, is nestled along an unspoiled section of the Atlantic beach. Vero Beach is ideal for taking a dip, long walks, or relaxing under the shade of an umbrella in a beach chair.
If you’re feeling more adventurous, consider paddle boarding, ocean kayaking or boogie boarding. Through Shark Bait Beach Gear Rentals, the hotel offers these watersports activities and more right on the property.
The 1894 wreck of the Breconshire lies just south of the hotel, several hundred feet from shore. It is clearly marked by a pole with an American flag that is visible from the hotel's pool deck and the beach. Shark Bait Beach Gear Rentals offers the unique opportunity for experienced kayakers and snorkelers to explore the shipwreck.
The shipwreck is not one of the ships from the doomed Spanish treasure fleet of 1715 that gave this coastline its name, but those Spanish galleons are out there as well. More information can be discovered at the McLarty Treasure Museum on A1A or by chatting with a meandering metal detector-toting treasure hunter. Be forewarned, afterwards you may find yourself looking for more than seashells as you walk along the beach.
