Location and Access
Jupiter Beach Park is located at 1375 Jupiter Beach Road in Jupiter, Florida. It’s a 2.5-hour drive from Orlando. The park is open from sunrise to sundown but inlet fishing in the area is allowed at any time of day and night. The beach is public so entrance is free. There is a parking lot patrolled by the police. Parking is free but limited so it’s better to arrive early.

If you want to have a picnic, bring your favorite food and arrive early to occupy one of the picnic tables with BBQ grills in the picnic area. There is a big pavilion for rent. There are also some local restaurants just a short drive away.
The park’s jetty operates 24 hours per day and is said to be a nice fishing spot.
The beach is rather shallow. Swimming is mostly relaxing and safe – there are designated swimming areas where fishing and surfing are not permitted. Great news for kids – there is a pool area supplied with natural saltwater where little ones can swim and play.
There are lifeguards on duty, which contributes to the safety of your beach experience. However, always use caution and watch your children.
If you would like to add some active recreation to your beach day, you can play beach volleyball on-site – there is a sand court available. Fishing is allowed 24 hours per day and is going to be an easy and enjoyable experience in the area along the jetty and pier.
Snorkeling is another popular activity – the water is crystal clear. Once you are tired of everything, you can just sit in front of the ocean and watch the boats go in and out of the inlet.
