Bathtub Reef and The House of Refuge in Stuart, Florida

Bathtub Reef gets its name from the living reef found just offshore creating a calm area of shallow water resembling a bathtub. The area covers about 85 acres and runs from St. Lucie north about 1.4 miles.

The reef itself is about 40 yards offshore and is partially exposed during low tide. The reef protects the shoreline from breaking waves and is a great place for small children to swim and feel comfortable.
