Jensen Beach is not only considered one of the most charming places to vacation in Florida, but our quaint community was also recently named as one of the top places to retire in the United States. Nestled minutes from Hutchinson Island and the Atlantic Ocean, with Port St. Lucie to the north and Stuart to the south, it’s easy to see why people are drawn to the unspoiled natural beauty of our beaches and our laid back attitude. Over a century old, Jensen Beach is one of the few remaining old Florida towns that successfully blend preservation with progress.
Our picturesque historic downtown, with small-town charm and warm hospitality is dotted with quaint shops, outdoor cafes and five-star restaurants. We’re a tight-knit community that loves to celebrate and our downtown hosts some of the best events found anywhere. There’s our weekly Jammin’ Jensen every Thursday night; our signature event, the Jensen Beach Pineapple Festival held in early November; and the Jensen Beach Fine Art & Craft Show held in mid-January.
Our beautiful landscape includes breathtaking views from one of the highest points on Florida’s Atlantic Coast, miles of pristine beaches on Hutchinson Island, canopied forests and grassy marshes of Savannas Preserve State Park, and the startling blue waters of the Indian River Lagoon. The beaches of Hutchinson Island are natural and captivating. Allow yourself to lose track of time while spending and afternoon basking in the sunshine or shelling along the waters edge.
Our pleasant year-round climate guarantees plenty of leisure activities to fill each day. There are dozens of places to fish, challenging golf courses, and many wonderful waterways for boats to explore. Surfing, kayaking and skimboarding are popular past times. Jensen Beach also offers a host of family friendly indoor activities such as exploring our impressive museums or unlimited shopping possibilities ranging from our regional mall to our unique boutiques and art galleries.
Our quality lodging facilities offer great choices whether you are looking to stay a weekend or a season. We have oceanfront condos and hotels, quaint cottages, fishing camps, old Florida motels, bead and breakfast inns, and convenient RV parks.
Our coastal location is ideal for family vacations, weddings, honeymoons, golf weekends, fishing outings, or retiring – you name it. We invite you to enjoy our captivating lifestyle and scenic natural beauty of Jensen Beach and Hutchinson Island. It’s the prefect vacation destination that many visitors end up calling home.
