IT is absolutely beautiful. Bring water shoes, so you don't hurt your feet on the rocks, which are in the surf, and on the beach, which is made of these rocks. $2/ admission for adults, free for kids of a certain age. Parking is the...More

We had a great time visiting and going through the visitors center. It was a really cool experience and the kids loved watching the water spray up when hitting the rocks.

The parking area is small so come early. However, we arrive about 11:30 (weekday) and there was hardly anyone on the beach. There is a $2 per person fee, honor system. Short walk through the Sea Grapes to the beach. The limestone formation that causes...More

Spent most of the day beach combing for shells and rocks at low tide. The only downside to the Preserve is the hours- 9 am to 430 pm. To see the blowing rocks, you have to be there at high tide. We accessed the beach...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...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...More

I really don't know, as I don't have a pet and while we were there I didn't see any. Sorry I couldn't help with your question. It really is a beautiful place.
