Setting — Tucked into a well-protected basin west of the ICW, Grand Harbor is located in a large, 828-acre manicured and gated golf community a few miles north of Vero Beach. The well-maintained docks are surrounded by tile-roofed and richly-colored pastel high-rise condominiums and private residences.

Marina Notes — A Clean Marina. Part of the chain of Loggerhead Clubs & Marinas. Shoreside facilities were expanded and upgraded in late '04-early '05. A new marina-side kidney-shaped pool with waterfall is surrounded by a paver-brick deck furnished with chaises, chairs and tables. It's tucked into the "L" of an elegant new building that houses the laundry, showers, dockmaster's office and other amenities, including a full-service ships' store and captains' lounge with TV and data ports. This will be completed by late April 2005. Monthly utilities metered - $45/mo min. The harbor was originally dug as a source of fill for U.S. 1 in the 1950s, and the club was expanded in the mid-1980s. The professional staff will call on local marine services for visiting yachts and shop catalogs for deliveries. Only transients may live aboard here; stays may be limited. (H) Eight docks were damaged by Frances; all are restored.

Notable — The amenities of the Grand Harbor Golf & Beach Club are not available to transient marina guests; although there is a discussion underway to make them available to annual tenants. Access to the golf course and tennis courts is on the same basis as any private club (i.e. through one's own club). The shopping of Vero Beach's Miracle Mile is about four miles away, so this stop requires a taxi or rental car for most forays. But this protected, quiet club offers guests a hideaway that is a short ride from an upscale town known for its theater, art museum and interesting galleries.
