Jensen Beach is actually situated and split within Martin County and St Lucie County. The city is located about 40 miles north of West Palm Beach. Jensen Beach is considered by many a classic Old Florida beach town. The small beautiful community is home to over 11,000 residents, and boasts the highest point of land on Florida’s east coast, which gives way to the seasonal sea turtle nests. So much so that the main public beach is uniquely called the Jensen Sea Turtle Beach located on Hutchinson Island.
Jensen Beach real estate borders the Indian River and in fact was awarded and named the one of the “Top Places to Retire” in the state of Florida. Even so, the residents consist of young, single residents, seniors and families with school-aged children. Most of the residents live in homes that were constructed in the 1970’s up to the late 1990’s, with few of the homes being built before this era. There are also high rises off the ocean that give amazing scenic views.

If you enjoy the beach, then Jensen Beach is the place for you. The waterfront homes off the Atlantic coast gives the people adventures for fishing, walking, swimming, surfing and just soaking up the sun. And if you need a break from the beach, which we hope will never happen, golfers can enjoy the day at the several golf courses in the neighboring communities of Stuart and Palm City.
Once referred to as the “Pineapple Capital of the World” during the 20th century, each year tourists and local area residents celebrate and honor Jensen Beach’s heritage and symbolism of this fruit with the Pineapple Festival, which is the community’s annual signature event featuring local and national musical acts, carnival rides and helicopter tours. Besides the local attractions, events and fishing tournaments, Jensen Beach real estate offers a lively downtown district.
