Bathtub Beach closed until further notice:
Beginning Friday, November 15, and until further notice, Bathtub Reef Beach will be closed due to erosion and safety concerns. The beach will not be able to withstand the impending rough surf and high tides, and in an abundance of concern for resident and visitor safety, the beach, pavilion and parking areas will be closed.
Due to the erosion, Martin County Ocean Rescue needed to remove the lifeguard stands from the shoreline. Bathtub Reef Beach will not be guarded or open until shoreline conditions improve.
During this time, beachgoers are encouraged to visit other nearby Martin County beaches, each offering beach and amenities residents and visitors have come to enjoy. Jensen Beach offers a beautiful guarded beach, Sand Dune Café, restrooms, showers and plenty of parking. Other nearby beaches include Stuart Beach, Chastain, Santa Lucea and Tiger Shores for quiet relaxation on the shore.
