Bathtub Reef Beach

Bathtub Reef Beach Review

Rough tides are often the norm in this stretch of the Atlantic Ocean, but a charming enclave at the southern end of Hutchinson Island—after the Marriott's beach and right by the Indian River Plantation luxury development—provides a perfect escape for families with young children and anyone who likes to snorkel. The waters are shallow and usually calm, and youngsters can walk up to the reef and see a dazzling assortment of fish. The parking lot is small, so get there early. Erosion is a problem, and sometimes lifeguards can't pull their hefty chairs out, leaving the beach unguarded (but it shouldn't deter you, because the sea isn't rough). Amenities: toilets; showers; parking (free); lifeguards. Best for: swimming; snorkeling.
