Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge

Celebrities, seclusion and sun

Jupiter Island, which hosts Hobe Sound, is America's wealthiest community. Many presidents and athletes have escaped the limelight here, including Celine Dion, who owns one of the island's sprawling, multi-million dollar mansions.

In contrast to this splashy backdrop is a quiet wildlife reserve, which invites retirees, families and nude beach enthusiasts, not celebrities. Even though Hobe is not officially designated as a nude beach, naturists can enjoy the island's isolation in peace - provided they use the proper precautions.

Jupiter Island is the place for privacy and relaxation, but West Palm Beach is within easy driving distance if you crave more.


Jupiter Island offers every lavishly priced resort, seaside cottage, charming inn and cozy bed and breakfast imaginable. While expensive, Jupiter Beach Resort offers unparalleled seclusion. More modestly priced lodgings surround the island in Palm Beach County. Check Hobe Sound area guides, or The Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce, for lodging to suit your vacation.
