Jensen Beach vacation rentals

Beachfront bliss overlooking the Atlantic

Florida is so studded with legendary holiday destinations that some places remain hidden gems. One such nook for those in the know is Jensen Beach, an idyllic ocean-front community on the state’s east coast, boasting beaches lapped by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Once dubbed the “Pineapple Capital of the World”, Jensen Beach still has an annual festival devoted to the proud fruit, while the year-long pleasures include lounging on Jensen Sea Turtle Beach, and tucking into the local, freshly caught seafood. The winding St Lucie River is another must for intrepid explorers.

Wet and wild in Jensen Beach

If you’re booking your Jensen Beach vacation rental for your pooch as well as yourself, then you’re in luck. There’s a popular, dog-friendly slice of the coastline nearby, called Walton Rocks Beach. This is where you can really let your pet run rampant while you try to keep up, and admire the other canines making the most of the sands. Rather relax? Try Jensen Sea Turtle Beach instead – this is located on Hutchinson Island and is where you can recline on a deck chair and admire the wide blue waters. You can even go on night tours to watch sea turtles during their nesting season.

Family-friendly fun in Jensen Beach

If you’re staying in a Jensen Beach vacation rental with little ones in tow, then you’ll probably want to whisk them to the Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast. This is one of the main attractions within Indian Riverside Park, and has a colorful range of hands-on exhibits for kids to explore – including a marketplace where they can go “shopping”, and a vintage 1920s fire truck which will set their imaginations alight. There’s even a make-believe vet clinic where budding medics can examine stuffed animals and check x-rays. Another family attraction is the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center, which lets you get up close to eerie, alien-like rays, and discover the loveable sea turtles.

Summer and winter in Jensen Beach

As it’s perched on the coastline and has the word “beach” in its name, you’d be forgiven for thinking spring and summer are the best times to pay a visit to this part of Florida. The sunny days and soaring temperatures are certainly ideal for committed beach lovers, and the sea turtle nesting season is in full swing during the warm months, so this is the time to come if you’re eager for a glimpse of these grand creatures. That said, the winter shouldn’t be discounted either – the nesting season lasts till November, after all, while famous Pineapple Festival also takes place that month with lively concerts, street performances, and craft fairs.

Lush landscapes in Jensen Beach

It’s worthy bringing some comfy walking shoes when coming to your Jensen Beach vacation rental. You’ll be within a short distance of unspoiled natural beauty, and not just in terms of the beaches. There’s also Savannas Preserve State Park, which stretches for many miles along the coastline and offers a sumptuous natural ecosystem to explore, whether on foot, bike, or by canoe. Wildlife lovers will find plenty to photograph, while over on the St Lucie River you can take a cruise along the Amazon-like waterway to see herons, turtles, and even alligators.
