Jensen Beach Florida
Jensen Beach can be found along the portion of Florida’s East Coast that is known as the Treasure Coast. Nearby cities include Fort Pierce and West Palm Beach. The nickname of this area reflects the number of ships that wrecked not far offshore, and they say you can still hope to find treasure and other artifacts in the area waters. A good place to treasure hunt, or just soak up some sun, is the main public beach in Jensen Beach. This beach is on Hutchinson Island – a thin barrier island that is linked to Jensen Beach by NE Causeway Blvd. Other popular beach activities on Hutchinson Island include swimming and surfing.
Jensen Beach Florida was once hailed as the “Pineapple Capital of the World,” and while the local pineapple industry isn’t what it once was, the town still plays host to the annual Pineapple Festival. This festival is held on the second weekend of November and is quite popular. If you can’t make it to Jensen Beach during the Pineapple Festival, you should still find plenty to keep you entertained. The town has plenty of shopping and dining opportunities, and there is no shortage of area activities to enjoy, including fishing and scuba diving.
