Martin County reopens a new, improved Bathtub Beach

MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. — After months of being closed to the public for beach renourishment, popular Bathtub Beach in Martin County is now reopened.

The beach, located on Hutchinson Island, has been closed since November after Tropical Storm Eta battered the coastline with high winds and pounding surf.
Crews worked to reinforce the dunes and provide other beach renourishment work over the past few months while the beach was closed.

This is a common spot for erosion and has to close often after hurricane season to make repairs.
