We accessed the beach after hours by a state park about a mile from the Preserve.It was a tough... More

Blowing Rocks Preserve is a beautiful coastal area near Jupiter. The drive alone is worth it. The walk to the beach goes through a shaded sea grape area on a sand path. Once there the beach is pristine. No condos or buildings just sand, rock and waves. We were there on high tide so we saw the waves crashing up... More

It's a beach with rock formations. $2 entry fee goes into a locked up tube, parking for less than 20 cars. 9a-1630. Why are pets not allowed? Especially for responsible pet owners they should be allowed I understand not wanting those who do not clean up after their animal. Really wanted to take the dog here.

Blowing Rocks has been one of my favorite beaches since I was a teenager going to high school in Hollywood, Florida and it was my final destination when taking drives north along A1A. It has dual personalities when the tide is low one can walk along the shoreline and there are little mini caves and overhangs where one can sit... More

Amazing views! Take good sturdy water shoes to get there. Watch for low tide to walk between water and rocks. Or If you want to see a lot of splashing go when it is high tide.

Parking can be a little tough, but nicer to get to this place when it is windy and when it is high tide to make the most of this scenic spot. There is a building where you can find a bathroom. The area has a lagoon trail and then a trail to the beach where trees arch overhead before you... More

Very nice spot with a nominal entry fee of $2. I was there on a windy day and saw the water blowing through the rocks. You should be wearing a good supportive sandal or shoe as there are lots of rocks with sharp edges. You can walk a good distance without encountering lots of people. There is a short walk... More

Although we did not hit this spot to catch the blowing rocks, I was amazed at how beautiful and unusual this beach was. It was a short walk on the beach to the actual rock formations. I have great pictures to remind me of my visit.

If you go during high tide with rough seas, you'll see some magnificent geyser-like explosions of ocean water coming up through the rocks.

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!
