Tequesta

Tequesta is an incorporated village in northeastern Palm Beach CountyFlorida with a population of about 5,629. It is the northernmost municipality in the South Florida metropolitan area. Most of the village is located on the mainland of Florida but parts of the village are on Jupiter Island, with small sections situated on the north and south sides of the county-owned Coral Cove Park. 

Named after the Tequesta tribe who were thought to have inhabited the area, the Tequesta Country Club which later became the village of Tequesta was developed in the 1950s by Charles Martyn who recognized the potential of the subtropical wilderness situated on 86 acres of Jupiter Island land. Today's Tequesta is a bustling village with the luck of having miles of waterfront property within its borders, offering homes along the lazy Loxahatchee River and impressive oceanfront estates on the Atlantic Ocean. Quiet, tree-lined suburban streets and gated condominium complexes offer security and the beauty of South Florida surroundings, attracting professionals, families and retirees alike to the area.

Tequesta is a culture- and resource-rich community offering plenty of arts, entertainment, educational and recreation opportunities. The Lighthouse Gallery and School of Art and dozens of local shops, restaurants and other businesses serve Tequesta residents with many more to be found nearby in the towns of Jupiter and Stuart. Residents of subdivisions like Tequesta Oaks enjoy a reinvigorated town center within a few steps of home.
