Blowing Rocks PreserveJupiter, FL
Blowing Rocks Preserve is an amazing beach located on Jupiter Island. It’s a perfect beach for snorkeling and photography and is one of the most unique in Florida.
Blowing Rocks Preserve is located on the barrier island of Jupiter Island and is situated on the southern side, close to the town of Jupiter. Jupiter Island is one of the wealthiest (and prettiest) islands in all the country and a large part of it’s northern and southern sides are natural preserve. The easiest way to get here is to travel over Cato’s Bridge and head north. It’ll be on the right hand side of the road about a mile away.
The beach at Blowing Rocks Preserve is big and unspoiled. The sand gets very hot and the rocks are sharp so make sure to wear flip flops or shoes. The main draw of this beach are the huge limestone cutouts dotted along the shoreline. The bulk of them are to the south and they are fantastic for photography and exploring. In addition, the crystal clear water in this area makes for excellent snorkeling. The best time to see the “blowing” rocks is during high tide during rough surf.
Blowing Rocks Preserve doesn’t offer many amenities but they do have restrooms across the street in the visitors center. Also, showers for rinsing are found on the boardwalk leading to the beach. As of the June 2021 the restrooms were still closed due to Covid protocol. Parking is limited and there are no lifeguards on duty either.
Blowing Rocks Preserve is one of the best beaches in the Jupiter area and is definitely worth a visit. Yet another reason why Jupiter is one of my favorite beach towns in Florida.
