Costa d’Este Beach Resort & Spa

Costa d’Este Beach Resort & Spa
3244 Ocean Drive, Vero Beach; 772.562.9919;

This resort owned by Gloria and Emilio Estefan is a casual getaway in swanky Vero Beach, where epic sunrises are worth getting up early for.

PLAY: Kayak or paddleboard to the shipwreck in front of the resort, or explore from above via seaplane tour with an exhilarating water landing.

ENRICH: Set out on the Treasure Coast Wine & Ale Trail, which features nine craft breweries and one winery, or head to the Vero Beach Museum of Art, a cultural gem with a sculpture garden and an interactive kids’ space.

UNWIND: Reward yourself with a rubdown at C|Spa at Costa d’Este, or partake in a sunrise yoga session, offered four days a week.

TASTE: Start your evening with cocktails by the fire pits, then dine at The Wave Kitchen & Bar, where the Estefans have made their mark with ham croquettes, Cuban roasted pork and fresh Florida seafood.

Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa

Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa
3793 NE Ocean Blvd., Jensen Beach; 772.334.1950;

Think of this 178-room Opal Collection resort, nestled on a beautiful stretch of sand on quiet Jensen Beach, as your own secluded oasis.

PLAY: Jensen Beach is known as the Sailfish Capital of the World, so it’s only fitting to have the resort arrange for a private sailfishing charter; it is also one of only two beaches in Florida on which you can go horseback riding.

ENRICH: May through October, participate in the hotel’s sea turtle nest excavations led by Florida Oceanographic Society staff.

UNWIND: Start your morning with sunrise yoga on the beach, then spend the day lounging by one of the two heated pools. Afterward, book an ocean-inspired treatment at Opal Spa.

TASTE: The resort’s signature restaurant Drift Kitchen + Bar showcases house-made pastas, prime cuts of meat and fresh seafood.
