Nestled on the historic, beautiful Treasure Coast — named after a Spanish fleet that sunk more than three centuries ago — lies Jensen Beach. Perhaps most famous as the "Pineapple Capital of the World," this small city is known for its hospitality, shopping, fine dining and (you guessed it) an annual Pineapple Festival.
For those that love spending time in the sunny Florida outdoors, Jensen Beach offers world-class water sports, from fishing and sailing to surfing and water skiing. Thanks to a coral reef just offshore, the area attracts snorkeling and SCUBA diving enthusiasts. Jensen Beach also draws several types of endangered sea turtles to its beaches every nesting season; in fact, one of the town's most popular beaches, located on Hutchinson Island on the Atlantic coast, is known as Jensen Sea Turtle Beach. Other popular waterfront destinations in the area include Waveland Beach, Walton Rocks Beach (complete with an off-leash area for your canine companion), Normandy Beach and Dollman Beach.
For more outdoor enjoyment, head north of town to Savannas Reserve State Park. This 10-mile-long stretch of waterfront preserve offers canoeing, kayaking and fishing, as well as more than eight miles of biking, horseback riding and hiking trails. If golf is your game, you can choose from more than 10 courses within a few miles of downtown. To learn about more recent local history, stop by the Maritime and Classic Boat Museum to explore the area's rich seafaring past.
But it's not all about the outdoors when you call Jensen Beach home.
