Go when it is high tide and you can watch the waves crash on the Anastasia Limestone Rocks! Just beautiful! Also there are beautiful trails to walk. Be sure to go across the street and visit the conservation center!

It's a big hard to find parking but well worth the effort, very informative and nicely done! Great way to spend a few hours learning about the structure of the reef!

Beautiful beach. We went to the refuge, walked through the mangroves, walked along the beach, cooked out on a grill at the park, and climbed on the rocks. Awesome.

Come here for the day and experience why so many snow birds flock here. Take a walk to see some of the mansions on Jupiter Island and then look east to a tranquil sea. Pick up some sea shells along you walk and step into some warm waters of the Atantic ocean. View the crashing of the waters along the... More

A must see! The rock formations are perfect. The water is clear. The views are beautiful! Take your umbrellas, beach chairs, and a cooler for a wonderful day. Had an awesome time!

By 'Small Place' I mean actual brick'n-mortar admin. building and visitors center. The lagoon walkway and adjacent boardwalk are interesting.... but the actual sea-shore is unique along Florida's actual coastline, and it will allow a long walk down the shore. Low or High Tide visitations will offer up something other than expansive sand playgrounds. You could spend all day here... More

We were at the Blowing Rocks in January. It was a perfect time to be there. The waves kept coming in and crashing into the rocks. Since there is a space in the middle of the rock formation, the water goes in and up through that space and the water just swooshes right up into the air. I just kept... More

We've been touring around all of the national and state parks and preserves in Martin/Palm Beach County and came across this hidden gem! Said on the website there is a tour every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. So we went! Wow, this place takes your breath away. There has been so much care and concern for this beautiful treasure. Our tour...

If you're in the area, visit at high tide. There's parking on both sides of A1A. Small museum, several hiking paths, $2 volunteer donation. Water is available to wash your feet. Restrooms available at the museum.
