Sebastian Florida is located in northern Indian River County, along the Indian River Lagoon, 15 miles north of Vero Beach and 20 miles south of Melbourne. It is a small taste of old Florida with an abundance of natural treasures, activities and culture available to visitors and residents alike. The Sebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce is a wealth of area information, and their friendly staff is more than happy to share this with visitors.
Sebastian is home to America's first National Wildlife Refuge, Pelican Island. The Indian River Lagoon National Scenic Byway, a nationally designated byway runs through the Sebastian River Area and is North America's most biologically diverse estuary, habitat to more species than any other region of the country.
The Sebastian area is also well known for the sunken treasure found along its shores. Treasure hunters continue to search the beaches for relics lost off the central Florida coast. You can see some of this treasure at both McClarty Museum and Mel Fisher Treasure Museum.
Sebastian Inlet State Park is a celebrated saltwater fishing spot on Florida's east coast and is also a premier surfing spot with several major competitions held here every year. Sebastian is also the home of Sky Dive Sebastian, which hosts one of the most spectacular skydiving views in the world and is visited by extreme sportsmen from all over.
Here in Sebastian you can do as much or as little as you like; we truly have something to appeal to everyone. And many areas are completely untouched and take you back to a much simpler time. Enjoy all we have to offer; escape.
