Coral Cove Park

Map & Directions

Coral Cove Park, also known as “Little Blowing Rocks”, is located on A1A on Jupiter Island. A small outcrop extends southward from the boardwalk. The small cliffs are notched, and small caves have formed. Large rock masses have collapsed in the surf. Planar bedding is present, and the rock is fossiliferous. Both small and large burrows create a highly bioturbated surface. Calcium carbonate crusts are present. Solution pipes and lithified infillings occur frequently. A double sea arch can be seen at most times, although at high tide it is largely covered by waves.
