Situated along the Indian River on Florida's Atlantic Coast, Jensen Beach, FL is a serene and charming beach vacation getaway. Step outside your vacation rental onto the beautiful, vast and uncrowded beaches, and surf, swim, kayak, or sunbathe. Spend your days exploring the coastline and fishing for Jensen's surplus of trout and other game fish, then retreat back to your vacation home at night to grill the day's catch and spend time with family and friends on your rental's private porch or patio.
Beach activities are endless in Jensen with a seemingly infinite number of great spots to sail, windsurf, and play tennis. Immerse yourself in all of Jensen's unique topography, and visit the Savannas Preserve State Park, filled with freshwater marshes, or "savannas." These marshes are the most intact relic of Florida's east coast savannas, and a great place for visitors to learn about this natural ecosystem. Canoe, kayak, or take photos amidst the marshes.
Here are a few additional suggested activities for your vacation:
-Take a deep sea fishing trip: Jensen Beach is home to a number of great fishing charter boats, including the Lady Stuart Deep Sea Fishing company.
