Sewall’s Point is a charming peninsula located on the eastern side of Martin County, surrounded by the waters of the St. Lucie River and the Indian River Lagoon. Both the town and the peninsula are named for Capt. Henry Edwin Sewall. Famous for its waterfront estate homes and wide water views of the rivers and Intracoastal Waterway, it truly is a boaters’ paradise.
The tree-lined streets feature beautiful estate homes, many of which are waterfront with docks. Sewall’s Point is a designated bird sanctuary and has been a nationally recognized “Tree City” for over two decades. If you are looking for a high quality of life with small-town character, Sewall’s Point is perfect for you!
Sewall’s Point has a beautiful park with a playground for children and several benches angled to enjoy beautiful water views. You may also enjoy fishing in the river and the water retention area. The park is located across from Town Hall. You are welcome to have parties and other events there. Please check with the Town Clerk to reserve the gazebo.
