Blowing Rocks Preserve in Hobe Sound is a beautiful display of natural Anastasia Limestone rock along the coast of our clear Atlantic waters. This gem of a location is a favorite place for photographers and nature lovers as it is an incredible site to watch the waves spray high over the rocks and observe many forms of marine life flourish near shore in this natural reef habitat.

Blowing Rocks is a reflection of what South Florida barrier islands looked like a century ago and on the tour you'll learn all about its unique features and what The Nature Conservancy is doing regionally to protect our natural habitats.

The iconic PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, home to the famous Honda Classic and a choice tourism spot, is under contract with the Canadian company Brookfield Asset Management. The resort was last sold to Walton Street Capital for $170 million in 2006 and went up for sale again this June.
