Salerno, Florida is an upscale community located in Martin County
between Palm City and Hobe Sound. It is strategically situated
where the Atlantic Ocean meets with the Indian River and the
St. Lucie River.
As a boating and fishing center, Port Salerno's reputation is
world renown. Major Sport Fishing Tournaments are held here
each year and there have been numerous World Record Fish caught
in the vicinity. It is also home to the internationally known
Chapman School of Seamanship.
Today, Port Salerno lies in an area that is one of the fastest
growing in Martin County. The area's potential for development
was recognized in the early 1970s by those who foresaw potential
for people who enjoyed golf as much as they did boating. They
established Martin County's first golf course community as well
as the Yacht and Country Club of Stuart, with deep water canals
leading out to the ocean. Port Salerno is also home to the St.
Lucie Inlet Preserve State Park.
