  • Welcome to Sandpiper Bay - Where happiness means the world

    New location. Same all-inclusive Club Med experience.

    Club Med Florida

    Located in the heart of South Florida, north of West Palm Beach, this beautiful Floridian resort stretches along the lush vegetation of the St Lucie river, only 2 hours away from either Miami or Orlando.

    Famous beaches, theme parks and other quintessential American hot spots are all within reach, but don’t be surprised if you don’t make it out of the resort itself.

    That’s because Club Med is a world leader in creating “all inclusive” travel experiences. From the moment you arrive you will be warmly welcomed by the famous Club Med culture that has been the high-water mark in customer service for more than 60 years.

    Club Med founder Gerard Blitz summarises the Club Med philosophy thusly, “Our purpose in life is to be happy. The place to be happy is here. And the time to be happy is now.”

    Sandpiper Bay facilities include golf, sailing, tennis, volleyball and cycling to name a few. Or you can get into the swing of things at the resort’s trapeze school. Those not looking to work up a sweat can kick back and relax by the pool. American dining is an experience unto itself and you will be able to indulge in food and drink available from any of the resort’s three restaurants. This includes the Riverside Grill, which is an adults only venue, known for its specialty American BBQ fare.


  • Things to do

    Golf

    While Florida is famous for its delicious juicy oranges, the Sandpiper Bay region is best known for the quality of its greens. The warm, tropical atmosphere makes it a lovely place to get out your clubs and practice your swing with top-quality coaches. Group lessons or “on demand” rounds of 18 holes: it’s all available without even having to leave the Resort.

    Trapeze School

    If you’ve come to relax, why not take it a step further and have your head in the clouds? Step up to the platform of the Flying trapeze, close to the Tennis courts. Point your toes and launch yourself towards the tops of the surrounding trees.


    Evening Shows

    Enjoy the acrobatics of a circus show, Broadway-inspired cabaret or a rock’n’roll evening. Have you been tapping your foot in time with the music? The main bar awaits, with plenty of room for dancing.


    Sailing School

    Unfurl the sails and cast off into the broad Atlantic estuary. Catamarans will be waiting for you on the far right of the tongue of sand at the edge of the resort. Set sail and feel the freedom that comes with having the wind behind you.


    Tennis Academy

    Directed by Gabe Jaramillo who trained stars such as Monica Seles, Maria Sharapova, Andre Agassi and Anna Kournikova, the Tennis Academy is sure to serve some slices of knowledge.


    Beach Volleyball

    Throw on your swimming costume and shades before polishing your skills at the Beach Volleyball Academy. Don’t let sounds of merit coming from the court fool you. There are also National Volleyball League professionals on hand if you’d like some tips to take your game to the next level.


    Soccer Academy

    Take part in a game of soccer, the world’s most popular sport and the ultimate in teambuilding exercises! Tactical planning, reminder of the rules relating to off-side, free kicks and penalties - join the soccer academy to improve your play and your skills.


    Relax by the Pool

    Let your stress melt away in one of the resort’s four pools. An adult only pool and hot tub is located on the edge of the St Lucie River with breathtaking views of the bay. Or you can camp out in a deckchair by the main pool with a drink from the nearby bar.
