Things To Do

FISHING

FISHING

Fishing is allowed nearly everywhere at Nettles Island EXCEPT off of docks in front of homes along the water…whether the property is occupied or not. The docks are private. Try under the small bridge by the boat ramp.  There is a fish cleaning station near the marina.  The Lady Stuart deep-sea fishing party boat leaves from the south end of Hutchinson Island at the Marriott.

SWIMMING

SWIMMING

Nettles Island has a pool, kiddie pool and hot tubs located at the rec center as well as a pool by the ocean.  Both pools require you to bring a pink pool tag for each person in your party.  The ocean pool parking lot is for Nettles Island residents and guests only.  If you do not have a UPC code for your car, be sure to display, on your dashboard, the pass you were given at the security gate when you arrived.

TURTLE NESTING

TURTLE NESTING

In the summertime, our beaches are nesting sites to several types of sea turtles. You can make a reservation to go on an evening turtle walk with a group from Florida Power & Light or you can take a chance that you may see one on your own.  Take a flashlight and bug spray.  A bright moon is helpful to watch as the turtles crawl out of the ocean and slowly make their way to the edge of the dunes.
