Hutchinson Island is a barrier island on the Central East Treasure coast of Florida bordering the Atlantic Ocean stretching 23 miles from Stuart to Fort Pierce.

The island is divided by North and South. 

South Hutchinson Island is located in Martin County. The southern part is commonly called Stuart Beach while the northern part is part of Jensen Beach

North Hutchinson Island is located in St. Lucie County extending up to Indian River County. 

The south part of North Hutchinson Island is designated by the census as Hutchinson Island South, but is typically referred to as part of Jensen Beach. 

The northern part of the island consists of 2 state parks, Avalon State Park and Fort Pierce Inlet State Park and some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. 

 

Avalon State Park is a mile long secluded and undeveloped beach just waiting for your arrival. The beach and dune habitats are home to many rare Florida species, including many species of sea turtles that use the non populated beach as a nesting place during the spring and summer months. Come prepared to enjoy a day of swimming, snorkeling, or fishing on the beach, or simply come and relax under the sun.
