“A lovely stretch of beach with a spouting surprise -- sometimes”

Blowing Rocks Nature Preserve
Ranked #1 of 11 things to do in Tequesta
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed February 19, 2012

As has been mentioned, the blowing rocks really come to life during high tides and high wave action. We haven't seen that yet, but the rocks certainly have life in them on all but the calmest of days, and the beach is quite serene. Take time to walk the trail northward through the dunes. Some important details. The parking lot is closed by 4:30, so don't come late (there are access points a mile or two south where you can park later -- and where there are some beautiful, much photographed rocks, as well.) There is a two dollar charge for those who happen to be older than twelve. The nature center is small but has interesting exhibits. And don't expect to bring food to the beach; sorry, not allowed.

Loved the serenity this place has - Very small and parking limited - go at high tide to see the water spray up -

Blowing Rocks Preserve is a true treasure along the Treasure Coast! Easy access and beautiful, wild scenery make this a sure hit with visitors of all ages. And, it can be enjoyed in a few minutes or for hours on end.

Loved this walk along a very different type of beach. Never a beach in Florida with this kind of rocky outcroppings. Interesting walk through the mangroves and hammock.
