Destination guide

Hobe Sound – it's music to your ears

Break out the sunscreen, swimsuits, and cocktail umbrellas – you're going to Hobe Sound! A charming, sun-kissed community along Florida's Atlantic Coast, Hobe Sound is known for its laid-back residential neighborhoods, countless acres of wildlife preserves, and easy access to miles and miles of sandy beach. It lies along the Intracoastal Waterway, a 3,000-mile inland waterway connecting Boston, MA to Brownsville, TX. With a Hobe Sound vacation rental, you'll be within easy reach of more boating, swimming, and watersports than you can shake a stick at – although maybe a fishing pole would do the trick.

Activities

Get up and get out in Hobe Sound

Hobe Sound is a nature lover's paradise. You'll find plenty of opportunities for camping, kayaking, and canoeing at Jonathan Dickinson State Park, and the Indian River waterway is a popular spot for boating and fishing. At Blowing Rocks Preserve, you can have it both ways – after relaxing on the sandy beach, you can don your snorkeling gear and get a unique look at the area's singular limestone formations. During high tide, waves from the Atlantic make their way through holes in the rock, spraying seawater a spectacular – an highly Instagrammable – 50 feet in the air.

Weather

Hobe Sound – heat don't fail me now

Hobe Sound has a tropical savannah climate, which means you'll generally encounter 1 of the area's 2 seasons – a hot, wet summer and a warm, dry winter. Summer highs tend to stay around 90ºF in July, August, and September, while average winter highs hover around 75ºF between December and February. Hobe Sound's warm winters make it a popular getaway for northerners fleeing colder climes, so properties tend to be in high demand – and at higher prices – between December and February. If you don't mind the heat, a summertime visit could also mean hot deals on a Hobe Sound vacation rental.

Natural features

Hobe Sound – the coast with the most

Hobe Sound lies just inland from the Atlantic Ocean, along a waterway made up of Peck Lake and the Indian River. Here you'll find plenty of marshy wetlands, and you can spot numerous species of birds, turtles, and other marine life. The lake is also a popular diving destination thanks to its large reef. To the east is Jupiter Island, a barrier island on the Atlantic that offers miles of sandy beaches and a wealth of nature preserves. With a Hobe Sound vacation rental, you'll never be far from prime Florida scenery.
