Coral Cove Park is a county park on bothe sides of A1A, offering beach access as well as access to the Intracoastal Waterway. Parking is free. There are restrooms and picnic tables on the beach side

My Report:

paddling bliss
Myself and one other kayaker and 8 paddleboarders paddled at sunset from Coral Cove PArk. The water was clear and the fish and other sealife were out in profusion. We paddled to a sand bar north of the park then returned in the failing light. As dark fell, the wind died and we enjoyed the stillness in the dark. This is a great location for beginners and paddleboarders. Park at the south end of the park on the west side. Look for openings in the fence and vegetation. Dolphins frequent this area. Luxury condominiums and home line the waterway, interspersed with vacant land.

Special Interests and Comments:

Special InterestsCoral Cove Park is between the St. Lucie and Jupiter Inlets so the water is clear, like being in the Atlantic Ocean without the waves. There are few sea walls in this area. Boaters observe safe speeds and the water is shallow out of the channel.
