This Saturday marks the June summer solstice and the official start of the summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

The summer solstice occurs this Saturday, June 20th at 5:44pm eastern standard time. This date marks the official beginning of summer.

Head to Juno Beach this Saturday morning to help keep our beaches clean. March 1st was the first day of Sea Turtle Nesting Season and Juno Beach is one of the most populated sea turtle nesting spots in the world.

Bathtub Reef is one of Hutchinson Island’s best beaches. The beach has soft sand, warm water, and lots of room to lounge and layout in the sun.

Bathtub Beach is special, due in large part to this reef system just offshore, home to more than 500 marine creatures, including endangered sea turtles. This reef system is created by tiny tube-building Sabellariid sea worms and is not only incredibly unique but also an extremely fragile one. The worms cement sand grains together, creating a vast network of tube dwellings. Colonies build on top of one another over time and create a reef system that helps break waves in the summer months, creating a “bathtub effect.”

During the calmer seas of spring and summer, it is normal to see sandbars inching toward

Jupiter is home to one of the very few remaining dog friendly beaches in the State of Florida and the only one in Palm Beach County. The Town of Jupiter in 1989 adopted a policy to allow dogs on the beach. Today, the town has a 2.5 mile stretch of the beach that is dog friendly.

The Jupiter Dog Beach stretches from beach marker #25 at Marcinski Road going north to beach marker #59, the south end of Carlin Park. In the designated area, dogs are allowed to roam freely and must be supervised at all times.
