Sebastian is located at the northern tip of the Treasure Coast at the center of the Florida east coast and is famously known as one of the last remaining fishing villages.
The visual setting of Sebastian is one of amazing natural beauty with its waterways — the river, the lagoon and it shoreline, the palms, oaks, egrets, pelicans, sandpipers, beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
This beach town is populated with natives who knew Miami and Fort Lauderdale in the days before massive high-rises and overcrowding. They appreciate the area's small-town feel, and that's exactly the appeal for visitors: a laid-back atmosphere, friendly people, and friendlier prices.
The beautiful waterways of Sebastian include the St. Sebastian River, the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean and provide a plethora of recreational activities. The waves at the Sebastian Inlet are known to be the best for surfing on the eastern seaboard. A crowd of well-tanned surfers from all over the state descends on the region, especially the Sebastian Inlet, to catch some of the state's biggest waves.
Other water sports enthusiasts enjoy the area's fine diving and windsurfing. Anglers are also in heaven here. In spring, baseball buffs can catch some action from the L.A. Dodgers as they train in exhibition games.
The Atlantic shore is lined with unspoiled beaches and many parks with playgrounds, picnic tables, grills and restrooms — fun for the entire family.
