Wildlife Observation
Many people like to visit the 3.5 miles of refuge beach located at the north end of Jupiter Island. Although you may be tempted to go skinny dipping, nudity is not permitted despite what you may read on the internet!

The refuge is open sunrise to sunset every day. Special hours for the Nature Center and exhibit room are Monday-Friday, 9:00 am- 3:00 pm.

Entrance Fees
An entrance fee of $5.00 per vehicle is charged at the beach only. Golden Eagle, Golden Age, Golden Access, and Duck Stamp annual passes are available upon request. A $12 Refuge Specific Annual Pass and a $15 Golden Eagle Hologram for National Park Service pass upgrades are also available.
