Just south of Blowing Rocks Preserve, Coral Cove is a Palm Beach County park with spectacular rock formations along the beach. While the rocks at Blowing Rocks have serious sea caves in their bluffs, these are not as tall but just as rugged and picturesque, and more Swiss-cheese in nature.

Follow A1A north from Jupiter to Jupiter Island. The park entrance is on the right before you reach Blowing Rocks Preserve.
Coral Cove makes for a wonderful beach walk, especially at sunrise and sunset. On every visit, the landscape looks different. On one visit, this natural bridge formation and sea arch stood out against the waves.
The dramatic rocks are part of the Anastasia Limestone of the Atlantic Coastal Ridge, which outcrops along the coastline several places between Stuart and this park. Atop parts of the rocky face are living worm reefs created by marine worms.
Encompassing almost 15 acres of waterfront on both sides of Jupiter Island, this is a family-oriented park, with picnic tables, a playground, and restrooms in addition to designated swimming and fishing area.
