Jensen Beach

Jensen Beach, Florida
Martin County
Population: 12,116
Part of the Treasure Coast, Jenson Beach is a superb place for treasure diving. Spanish treasure can still be found in the waters around the coral reefs where 17th century ships wrecked off the coastline.
One of the highest pints in Southern Florida, Skyline Drive offers beautiful views!
Hutchinson Island is the main public beach. You can swim, sun bathe, and surf with the assurance of lifeguards watching out for your safety. Be on the look out for protected sea turtles. Parts of the beach are off limits to visitors in order to protect the nesting areas of these leatherback and loggerhead turtles.
The pineapple is a symbol well known around Jensen Beach. In the late 1800’s, John Laurence Jenson and his pineapple plantation founded Jenson Beach. Once known as the pineapple capital of the world, Jensen Beach now grows citrus fruits.
Excellent schools, outstanding beaches, fine restaurants, superb fishing, and affordable housing make Jensen a wonderful place to live. Come and see for yourself!
