Over 35 years ago from August 15th, 2018, long-time Juno Beach resident and realtor Eleanor Fletcher started what is now Loggerhead Marinelife Center. After all her work over the years, Juno Beach is now recognized as one of the most active nesting beaches in the world! The Center offers daily events such as hatchling releases, fish feeding, public guided tours, and much more. This Saturday, August 18th, from 11AM-4PM the Palm Beach Gardens Mall is hosting the Marinelife Center for Marineline Life Day! Be sure to take a stop by for some merchandise and a raffle during your trip to the mall this weekend!
Located just down the road from the Marinelife Center is the Juno Dunes Natural Area. With over 4 miles of hiking trails located on the West and East side of U.S. 1, this natural preserve provides the botanical diversity that makes this a worthy destination for an early morning hike before the afternoon sun sets in. The observation tower at Juno Dunes East provides great views of the surrounding area of Juno as well as of the beach. Located in Juno Dunes West if you travel all the way to the Intracoastal you will be rewarded with the great views from the man-made cove. The cove also provides 6 boat slips if you are trying to access the area by boat. Head to the observation tower to get great views of the cove and of the surrounding area, and if you’re lucky you might catch a manatee floating around the cove.
Let your senses float you to nirvana at the Transitions Float Studio in their Sensory Deprivation Pods. If you haven’t heard of these pods here’s the lowdown…”Flotation pods are a private, lightless and soundproof pod that allows you to float like a cork in 10 inches of clean, skin temperature water with 1,000 lbs of medical grade Epsom salt dissolved in it. This allows all of your senses to be deprived, negating the effects of gravity.” Benefits vary but include Stress Relief, Relaxation, Pain Relief, Meditation, Anxiety, and Depression Relief. The studio is offering an End of Summer Special: One 60-min float & One 30-min Infrared Sauna Session for $50!! Offer valid until August 31st. Go get your float on!

Definitely, a stop on my weekend stroll around Juno because “I like Turtles”.
9.) Dog Beach

I like turtles, but I LOVE dogs! If you love them just as mine and have a pup of your own bring em’ on down to the Dog Beach. This 2.5 mile stretch of beach starts at Beach Marker #25 and proceeds north to Beach Marker #60. This is one of the best off-leash dog beaches in Florida and people come from all over South Florida to let their furry friends let loose in a very welcoming society of dog lovers. Make sure to get out there early or late in the afternoon so those paws aren’t burning up on the sand.
10.) Kite Beach
Wondering what those giant kites are flying around the beach, then take a drive to Kite Beach to get a first-hand look at the extreme sport of kitesurfing. If you are new to the sport, kite surfing is where the rider glides across the waves on a wakeboard like board attached to a big kitesurfing kite, which is used to navigate the board. Although there are multiple beaches in the area for Kite Surfing, locals attest that the best place to fly your kite is at Kite Beach. Several outfitters in Jupiter and Juno Beach along US1 offer kitesurfing lessons and equipment rentals or purchase. Be sure to attend the Jupiter Kite Invasion – an annual freestyle and surf style kitesurfing competition – to see Kite Surfing pros in action.
Watching some kite surfers got you feeling like you wanna catch a wave of your own? Then check out the local surf shop to Juno Beach, Groundswell Surf Shop.
