Pretty cool place it's got a very close-knit Community. It's an amazing place to just go and see check out east past. I had never seen a Jetty before this was my first one and it's pretty cool they have a restaurant right nearby that was great

The beach area is spotless and well taken care of. There was no litter on the beach. They have garbage cans available at teh beginning of each deck area back to the condos for trash, which helps to maintain the beautiful beach. The decks are well-maintained and they provide you with a spray hose to keep the sand from your... More

The beach was very beautiful this time of year! The tide wasn't as high while we were visiting so walking along the water was great! There was also hardly anyone else around while we spent time there. The water was crystal clear and not as cold as expected. My children and I had an absolutely amazing time in gorgeous weather!!

We went by boat over to the jetty's and did some great snorkling alone the rock jetties. If you go by car you will have to find someplace to park, they really don't have a good parking spots for the over flow at the condo's.

Not real crowded, very clean and well maintained by the county, well protected. It wasn't very level, made for sore ankles and feet if you walked a lot.

I find it interesting that the Jetty East, a condo development, has its own beach listed on Trip Advisor. There are adjoining properties on either side, so I'm assuming we are reviewing this stretch of beach. With that in mind, I will say that of course this part of the beach is crowded - there are a zillion condos within... More

Our time on the beach while staying at Jetty East was so relaxing. The beach was kept very clean and free of debris. We especially enjoyed the attentiveness of the beach attendant, Kyler. He was extremely friendly, always inquiring about our day. Kyler was eager to help in any way to make our beach time more enjoyable. We enjoyed visiting... More

It's a wonderful family atmosphere...or it can also be a very relaxing quiet one as well. Lots of family and couples visit this location.

The view and beach here are unbeatable! I will definitely be staying here again! Loved watching the boats come and go from the harbor. We could also see the fireworks from our balcony!

This place used to be great but ever since the oil spill it hasn't been the same. It is way overcrowded and there is just less and less beach to enjoy.
