Jensen Beach is nestled into Florida's East Coast between Fort Pierce and West Palm Beach. It was once known as the "Pineapple Capital of the World" and still holds an annual pineapple festival. The pineapple is the worldwide symbol of hospitality, and Jensen Beach lives up to this hallmark. Boasting major shopping centers, plentiful specialty stores and unusual boutiques, the Jensen Beach area is known as the retail shopping center of the Treasure Coast. It has also earned a reputation for its seafood-intensive fine dining. Water enthusiasts will find boating, sailing, fishing, skiing, surfing and scuba diving, and the beach itself attracts several species of endangered sea turtles during nesting seasons.
