Tortoise Island


Tortoise Island is a beautifully developed, 210 acre barrier island community just north of Satellite Beach that is actually fronted by three remarkable waterways, all with their own unique character and allure. Tortoise Island was actually the very first island community developed along the Banana River in Brevard County, and is now essentially fully developed. The three rivers surrounding Tortoise Island create a spectacularly lush, waterfront character.

Every home in Tortoise Island is has spectacular views of the stunning natural beauty the community was built around. The homes on Tortoise Island are either built directly on the river, along the canal, or built along the shores of several lakes and ponds that dot the island, so you can opt to have that peaceful lakefront view you have always wanted. Because Tortoise Island is all about waterfront living, which means boating, most homes in Tortoise Island have their own private docks, and the waterways are fully navigable.

Tortoise Island is divided by three different waterways, with the Banana River, Grand Canal and Inner Canal all running around it. These beautiful waterways are perfect for boating and fishing, as well as being a virtual sanctuary for natural wildlife. The waters here are populated with majestic manatees, some occasional dolphins, pelicans, herons and almost countless species of duck and other birds that all live here year-round. For the fisherman, the fresh-water fishing here is superb, but you always have the option to head to the ocean for deep-sea and salt-water fishing.

All the expansive, upscale and stunningly designed homes on Tortoise Island blend in with the environment perfectly and are all both luxurious and elegant at the same time, with most featuring private pools and docks at almost every home. The community area of the island has a large community pool, a fitness center with saunas, tennis courts, a playground and even a boat ramp.

Because it is located so close to Satellite Beach and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and surrounded by rivers and canals to the west, Tortoise Island truly is a perfect waterfront community, and offers all the activities that come with a waterfront lifestyle, with both river and beach-front living almost year-round.

For those who enjoy a more active lifestyle of sports and recreation, the area in and around Tortoise Island has numerous world-class golf courses, tennis courts, soccer fields, baseball fields and basketball courts, as well as running, cycling, rollerblading, skating, and even horseback riding all nearby.

Also because of its proximity to Satellite Beach, there are plenty of excellent restaurants, outdoor cafe's and shopping for you to enjoy in the town. Culture is very abundant throughout the area, with many cultural offerings nearby, as well as numerous scenic and historic sights. The entire area also boasts a rich and vibrant arts scene, with many local artists, and features jazz clubs and other live music clubs, comedy clubs, sports bars as well as a greyhound track and casino nearby.

When you need to head to the mainland, have no fear, Tortoise Island is perfectly situated, located just a few miles from two of the main causeways over to the mainland. To top it all off, being only an hour commute from Orlando, and so close to all the attractions, theme parks, sporting events, nightlife and shopping there, the weekends or anytime at all, can turn into an instant vacation.

Tortoise Island and the Satellite Beach area also offer plenty of shopping, with everything from the almost countless small boutiques you can explore, to modern malls, all easily accessible from where you live, or just a sort drive over on the mainland. When it's time to relax, you can enjoy casually browsing through the many antique shops and specialty boutiques, relaxing in the spas, or even practice some yoga.
