Welcome to Martin County
Why I Love Martin County
"I love the fact that this community is built around the small fishing village mindset. Though it has grown in population and development over the years, you can still enjoy the small-town charm. You can enjoy the sunrise over the beach in the mornings, and will never tire of seeing the Intracoastal on a drive over their beautiful waterways.We are able to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle just about 365 days a year, there truly is something for everyone here.”
