St. Lucie Inlet State Reserve

Enjoy the good nature

St. Lucie Inlet State Reserve occupies 928 acres of Jupiter Island and a half-mile of coral reef. Neighbor to Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge, St. Lucie Inlet is not an official nude beach, but the isolated stretch just south of the boardwalk is ideal for sunning in the buff. The area is also home to the rich and famous - if you wish to see how the other half lives, you might catch a glimpse of the lavish homes purchased by Burt Reynolds, Celine Dion and several celebrity athletes.

Outdoor Focus

Rent a boat and sail to the Hobe Sound Pipe Crossing, where you can see how Jupiter Island's wealthiest live. If you'd rather see nature, try a tour of Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse instead.
