Welcome to Jupiter, Jupiter Island, and Palm Beach Gardens
A quiet, nautical haven along Florida’s Treasure Coast
Located along Florida’s Treasure Coast, Jupiter, Jupiter Island, and Palm Beach Gardens are home to seaside nautical fun 365 days a year. Towering palm trees, sandy beaches, an abundance of parks, preserves, and trails, and world-renowned golf clubs are just a few things that make this coastal paradise so special. Peaceful seclusion away from some of southern Florida‘s busier sites has awarded residents with quiet beach piers, uninterrupted fishing opportunities, and coastal real estate sheltered away from prying eyes.
The iconic Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse was completed in 1868 and is still used as a symbol for the community of Jupiter and Jupiter Island. Today, Palm Beach Gardens is home to a high number of golf courses and professional golf players, excellent educational opportunities for children, and several festivals and parades celebrating the history and natural beauty of this tranquil stretch of Floridian shoreline.

Named as one of America’s happiest seaside towns by Coastal Living, Jupiter residents enjoy a slower pace of life, worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Heavenly beaches and parks offer beautiful views, trails, sporting fields and courts, and opportunities to observe native wildlife. One of the most excellent fishing spots in the nation features a variety of species to be caught both closer to and further from shore. A bit more island, airy outdoor communal centers featuring shopping, alfresco dining, and community events are perfect places to spend relaxing afternoons.
