Looking for a unique combination of relaxation and activity – fueled by fantastic food and drink? Look no further than Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa and Jupiter Beach, which offer 24 hours (and more) of sights, sports, and sensational cuisine.
Day On at Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa
Play a Game of Tennis – or a Round of Golf
Guests of the resort have access to a tennis court that’s available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Leave your own racquets at home as you can grab one on the court. Or, head to one of several golf courses surrounding the resort, like the Abacoa Golf Club, Jupiter Dunes Golf Club, or North Palm Beach Country Club.

Hit the Newly-Renourished Beach
Bring your James Patterson and your Kristen Hillenbrand. Because the beach right out the back door of Jupiter Beach Resort was recently “re-nourished” thanks to the addition of 517,000 cubic yards of sand – part of an $8.4 million project to combat erosion along the area beaches. Now, you can easily find a spot to stretch out, sunbathe, and catch up on the latest beach reads.
Relax at the Spa
Seaside unwinding continues here with the Ocean Memory Ritual, a 110-minute body treatment that uses algae to soothe and smooth skin. It’s just one of the many offerings at the Spa, which also has a fitness center and organic teas.
Happy Hour at The Sandbar
By now you’ve worked up a thirst for the resort’s signature cocktail: the JBR Strawberry Mo-Tito, handcrafted with Tito’s vodka, muddled strawberries, limes, mint and basil leaves. Or maybe you’re in the mood for an ice-cold Lighthouse IPA or a simple lemonade. Whatever you’re choice, you’ll enjoy the alfresco gathering around the fire pit.
Dinner at Sinclair’s Ocean Grill
This oceanfront restaurant serves a wide variety of Florida-inspired food such as jumbo lump crab cakes and Atlantic black grouper alongside favorites including beef short ribs and Tuscan chicken. Stick around to hear live music at Sinclair’s Lounge.
Day Off in Jupiter Beach
There’s nothing like the feeling of walking on water – unless you do it as the sun rises over the Atlantic Ocean, that is. The Jupiter Outdoor Center rents stand-up paddleboards for excursions through the Jupiter Inlet Area, where you just might spot a manatee in the crystal-clear waters.
Brunch at Duke’s
Once a snack bar at the beach, Duke’s Lazy Loggerhead Café is now a full-service restaurant that serves up some of the fluffiest pancakes and tastiest eggs in Jupiter Beach. The pretty blue building and outdoor patio make breakfast even better here.
By now you’re well fueled to climb the 105 steps of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse for fantastic views of the Inlet and beyond. At the on-site museum, you’ll learn how, during World War II, the military used the 1860-built lighthouse to train allied soldiers to decipher German U-boat transmissions.
Sea Turtles & Seafood
The Loggerhead Marinelife Center is a sea turtle research, rehabilitation, education, and conservation center, where you can visit recovering turtles in their tanks. Afterward, order the panko-crusted fried oysters at Little Moir’s Food Shack, a locals’ favorite that cooks up daily specials of “shackatizers” and “worldly plates.”
Tickets to Maltz Jupiter Theatre
Florida’s largest nonprofit professional regional theater, the Maltz showcases everything from concerts and comedy to Broadway-caliber musicals and plays. More than 100,000 people visit the award-winning theater each year. You may just be inspired to return for a class at the Maltz’s conservatory.
