Welcome to Jupiter Inlet Colony
Small-Town, Oceanfront Paradise
When it comes to small-town, oceanfront living, Jupiter Island Colony on the southern tip of Jupiter Island is where to be. This small hamlet is a town unto itself, placing you close to all the amenities of greater Jupiter Island and Palm Beach to the south while keeping day-to-day life intimate and charming.
There are original, Florida ranch-style homes, waterfront estates on oversized lots, and everything in between. Choose from Intracoastal, lighthouse views, or Atlantic Ocean vistas. Some homes are move-in ready, while others are just waiting for your renovation visions. Plus, residents have a practically private beach with some of the area’s cleanest water to call their own - there’s no public parking, so the Jupiter Inlet Colony residents are usually the only ones using the beach.
What to Love
- Tranquil, intimate, unique neighborhood
- Practically private, clean beach
- Own police force for community
- Surrounded by waterway and ocean
Within this special community at the southern tip of Jupiter Island, residents are thankful for their easy access to stunning turquoise, clear waters via the Atlantic Ocean beach and Intracoastal Waterway. Being so close to the water drives much of the local lifestyle - you’ll find your friends and neighbors out and about, walking along the shore, heading out fishing, or spending a day at the quiet beach (accessible via one of two lovely brick walkways lined by rare and colorful flowering plants and trees). The neighborhood boasts a community park and private Beach Club located on the Jupiter Inlet. With just eight roads and surrounded by the Intracoastal Waterway, the Atlantic, and the Jupiter Inlet, there’s no denying the pleasingly quiet ambiance of this tiny neighborhood.
Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping
Neighbors so dear they feel like family meet and mingle at the Jupiter Inlet Beach Club
, a private, members-only club at the mouth of the Jupiter Inlet. With breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, Jupiter Inlet, and the Jupiter Lighthouse, the beach club and recreation center has long provided a social outlet for the area residents.
For shopping, the upscale Harbourside Place
is just across Jupiter Inlet. There’s a classic, coastal vibe making a shopping trip feel like a fun outing. The complex offers mouthwatering restaurants, more than a dozen national and specialty stores, a highly rated hotel, and live entertainment at the waterfront amphitheater. Other convenient shopping areas include Jupiter Square
and The Shoppes at Jupiter.
While the shopping centers themselves boast numerous dine-out options, sometimes it’s a local atmosphere one seeks for a night out. Jupiter Inlet Colony residents gravitate to the Beach Club on the island, as well as several eateries just across Cato’s Bridge. Jupiter’s Lighthouse Diner
is a favorite for upscale comfort food, 1000 North
offers Modern American fair in a sophisticated waterfront setting, Blackbird Modern Asian
for pan Asian cuisine with a modern twist, and Crosby Kitchen & Bar
serves American-style bistro marrying traditional and creative ingredients, alongside a full selection of wine, craft beer, and hand-mixed cocktails. Craving fresh seafood while on the go? Head to The Tacklebox
in Jupiter Inlet Village for chef-inspired, takeout showcasing the freshest-caught fish from local waters, complemented by sides of seasonal veggies and various sauces.
Things to Do
When your neighborhood is surrounded by water, one can’t help but be drawn to watersports. Cato’s Bridge, spanning the Intracoastal Waterway to connect Jupiter Inlet Colony to Jupiter, is the place to start for great snorkeling. The bridge is near a white-sand beach, the Jupiter Lighthouse, and within one of the state’s most outstanding natural areas. The area along the west side of the Intracoastal and south of the Jupiter Inlet Bridge is the best for snorkeling and its waters stay crystal clear all day. Thanks to the biologically diverse environment and deep drop-off, snorkelers have the opportunity to see the occasional manatee or porpoise.
Residents who love to fish know that some of the best snook fishing around is found off the docks of the homes that line Jupiter Inlet. Many of these homes also look across the inlet to pretty DuBois Park
, another favorite outdoor hangout for local families. From here, there are fantastic Jupiter Lighthouse views. It’s also a perfect starting point for canoe and kayak adventures on the Loxahatchee River, one of the only two national Wild & Scenic Rivers in Florida. In Jupiter Inlet Colony, the water is your big backyard.
