Beautiful natural beach with warm turquoise water and a quaint downtown with fun bars and restaurants. While the town does have a significant influx of winter seasonal residents it does not feel touristy. For the most part nightlife in this town ends between 10 and 11PM, however several of the restaurants have live music Thursday through Sunday evenings providing for a fun atmosphere. There are a variety of home types ranging from modest sized ranch style homes to large beachfront mansions.

This is an amazing little town hidden in the treasure coast of Florida. Residents here are so friendly and welcoming! You can find the best seafood at the historic downtown area or go to the local mall for the latest trends. This small ton has the best of both worlds!
Jensen Beach is a very well-rounded town. It is kind of small and lacks a large population. However, Jensen Beach also contains high-quality shopping centers and a variety of restaurants. As it is also on the Atlantic coast, this town also boasts a clean and beautiful beach.
