Hobe Sound is located centrally between Stuart and Jupiter along Florida’s Atlantic coast in a scenic natural area, which is known for its pristine beaches and limestone formations. The public transport network in Hobe Sound is very limited, so you need a private car to travel here.

The turquoise ocean is clean, warm, and inviting. You can feel safe in the water since there are professional lifeguards on duty in the daytime – they are always helpful and friendly. Moreover, if you stay in the designated swimming area, you can be sure that no watercraft or surfers will disturb you.

Other Activities

The area is large enough for long walks – actually, the beach stretches for miles. The section designated by yellow flags is guarded and intended for swimming only, but you can go north or south of that area for surfing, fishing, kayaking, kiteboarding, or sailboarding.

If you have a dog, you are welcome to bring your furry friend there (off-leash). Another popular activity is beach combing – each tide or storm brings new treasures for you to find.


A big number of sea turtles use this beach for nesting and if you’re lucky, you can even see how little hatchlings make their way from the nest to the ocean.
