Jupiter Inlet Colony is surrounded by water on 3 sides; Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Intracoastal Waterway on the west side. It was the only outlet for the Loxahatchee River, Lake Worth Creek and Jupiter Sound. And part of the flow from the St. Lucie and Indian Rivers goes to the ocean through the Jupiter Inlet as well.
Located at the confluence of the Loxahatchee River, Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean, Jupiter Inlet is one of the top spots in the Palm Beaches for water sports of all kinds—with calm, clear waters that are perfect for boating, swimming, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, snorkeling, and diving.
The beach is accessible from all the homes on Jupiter Inlet Colony by taking a short stroll across one of two brick walkways lined by many rare and beautiful flowering plants and trees. The Jupiter Inlet contains a community park and a private Beach Club.
The Jupiter Inlet was first shown on maps dating back to 1671, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and has gone by many names over the years.
