Jensen Beach Real Estate
Jensen Beach, tucked into Florida's East Coast between Fort Pierce and West Palm Beach, once was known as the "Pineapple Capital of the World" and still holds an annual pineapple festival. Appropriately, the pineapple is a symbol of hospitality, and Jensen Beach lives up to this hallmark every day. With its major shopping centers, numerous specialty stores and unusual boutiques, the Jensen Beach area is renowned as a retail shopping center of the Treasure Coast. Jensen Beach also has earned a reputation for its seafood-intensive fine dining. The water enthusiast will find boating, sailing, fishing, skiing, surfing and scuba diving. Jensen Beach also attracts several species of endangered sea turtles during nesting seasons.
To visit Jensen Beach’s ocean side beauty, head out on the causeway to Hutchinson Island. Beach lovers frequent Sea Turtle Beach, a wide, sandy beach named for the loggerhead and green turtles that lay their eggs there in late spring. Heading south on Hutchinson Island, you’ll come across Bathtub Beach, which is popular with families because a coral reef protects the shore and keeps the waves to a minimum.
Jensen Beach hangs onto its history and uses it to its advantage. Even though the pineapple industry collapsed by 1920, the pineapple is a permanent part of the town’s identity. The annualPineapple Festival (complete with the crowning of Miss Pineapple) is held each November and remains Jensen Beach’s defining community event.
