The Great Outdoors
As a community on the eastern coast of Florida, Jensen Beach offers plenty of ways to play. With miles of coastline, you’ll enjoy spending time in the great outdoors of a beachfront community with welcoming year-round weather. Sailing, water skiing, exploring and boating are some of the leisure time activities. Marina’s dot the area’s coastlines providing boaters with supplies, dockage and fuel.

As well, concerts and special events are held in the park regularly. The Island Princess takes you on a sightseeing cruise along the St. Lucie and Indian River.
