Tequesta SandbarTequesta, FL
As you know by now, Jupiter is one of my favorite places in Florida and the Tequesta Sandbar in Jupiter is a great spot to take the boat.
The Tequesta Sandbar is located about one mile north of the A1A/S. Beach Rd. Bridge on the ICW/Indian River. It’s on the western side of the channel and you’ll likely, identify it from all the boats anchored.
The sandbar consists of clean, hard-packed sand and tidal water constantly flows over it. In addition, the best conditions for clear water are on an incoming tide after a period of calm seas in the ocean. If you haven’t visited the Jupiter area, you won’t believe how clear the water can get. Below is a video that one of my readers, David Lorenzo took. It’s a great video that shows the area well.
WHERE TO ANCHOR
The best way to navigate to the sandbar is to turn west at the Jupiter Pointe Marina and traverse the back-side of the bar. This is an ideal place to anchor because you remain better protected from the boat wakes coming from the ICW. Furthermore, it’s best to anchor on the edge of the sandbar so that the falling tide doesn’t ground the boat.
OTHER GREAT SPOTS IN THE JUPITER AREA
Jupiter has some other great places to visit by boat. They include the Jupiter Sandbar on the Loxahatchee River, Cable Crossing Beach (north of the Jupiter Sandbar, west of the ICW), Jupiter Lighthouse Beach and Peck Lake on north Jupiter Island.
I meant to film the two other locations in Jupiter but the weather didn’t cooperate. I’ll film them next spring, during an epic, water-clarity day, and add the links in this post once I’m done.
