“protecting this region for over 5 decades”

After five decades of protecting Florida’s great places, The Nature Conservancy considers Blowing Rocks Preserve a top success story. This peaceful, barrier island sanctuary is a well known model for large-scale, native coastal habitat restoration. The carefully restored habitats found here are disappearing fast from many Florida islands, and a number of endangered plants and animals call this special place home – including rare loggerhead, green and leatherback sea turtles We’re grateful for the enthusiastic support for our efforts! Will you renew your commitment today? The preserve was named for its rocky Anastasia limestone shoreline – the largest on the U.S. Atlantic coast. During extreme high tides and after winter storms, seas break against the rocks and force plumes of saltwater up to 50 feet skyward. It’s an impressive sight.

Blowing Rocks Preserve is a place nature created. The shape of the rocks are sculpted by the sea and are open to public in order to be admired.

Beautiful place to explore when the sea is calm, otherwise it can become very dangerous by the waves.

There is a visitors center at the site including an information point, toilet facilities and museum.

Great stop for photographers!
