The City of Sebastian, Florida is located in Indian River County midway through the east coast of the Florida Peninsula between Melbourne and Vero Beach in an area known as the Treasure Coast. It was first incorporated as the Town of Sebastian in 1924. The current population is approximately 23,000. The City has seen rapid growth in the past several years and it is anticipated to continue.
The City of Sebastian boasts beautiful parks, public and private schools, an unobstructed view of the intra-coastal waterway in the Indian River Lagoon along its dazzling riverfront district, close proximity to Atlantic beaches, a year round average temperature of 73.4 degrees, a police department, shops and restaurants, many churches, several City festivals each year, monthly arts and crafts shows, concerts in the park, a municipal golf course and airport, and a central location with easy access to I-95 and the Florida Turnpike.
The Sebastian River Area has over 20,000 acres of preserve ideal for hiking, birding and horseback riding. Sebastian is home to Pelican Island, America’s 1st National Wildlife Refuge, with over 130 species of birds. Sebastian Inlet State Park is one of the most popular state parks in the southeast known for its extraordinary surfing and fishing. One of the most consistent surf breaks in Florida is Sebastian Inlet’s first peak, located next to the north jetty. Another hot surf spot is Monster Hole–located about 1/3 mile off the beach. Avid fishermen also flock to Sebastian Inlet, which is considered the premier saltwater fishing spot on Florida’s east coast.
The Sebastian River Area also offers great inshore fishing. There are over 13,000 acres of freshwater wilderness famous for trophy bass, the diverse Indian River Lagoon, North America’s most biologically diverse estuary, has hundreds of species of fish and the St. Sebastian River takes you back in time with its “Old Florida” charm. These beautiful waterways not only offer amazing fishing opportunities but also the perfect scenery for pontoon boat and airboat tours, kayaking, and paddle boarding.
Sebastian is also well known for the rare antiquities that have washed upon its shores. The shipwreck from the 1715 Spanish Plate Fleet left many treasures along Sebastian’s coast. Many treasure hunters continue to search our shoreline for other artifacts that were lost in history.
