the wealthiest town in the United States, Jupiter Island is the
southernmost of Florida's three Barrier Islands (the other two being
Hutchinson and Orchid Islands). Located off the border of Martin
County's Treasure Coast (directly north of West
and Palm Beach County), seventeen mile long Jupiter
Island's legendary relationship with wealth began in 1715 when the
Spanish Plata Fleet wrecked right off the coast spewing tons of
silver and gold coins. Many of these coins are still found today
only inches below the sand of Jupiter Island.
Jupiter Island Florida's exquisite real estate
and promise of privacy have proven irresistible to the rich and
famous. Golfers Greg Norman, Nick Price, and Tiger Woods (Woods
paid $40,000,000 for his Jupiter Island home in 2006) live here
as well as singers Celine Dion and Alan Jackson. Most of the homes
on Jupiter Island are built on one and two acre parcels.
