The “Kiddie Pool” is what locals call the beach on the south side of the pristine Jupiter Inlet in DuBois Park.

Kids bring their snorkels, fins and face masks to hunt for colorful fish. Rock formations protect them from waves and currents.

Meanwhile, parents and adults can enjoy relaxing day on the lifeguarded beach.

There’s grills for cooking. Trees for shade. Picnic tables for dining.

Got a boat? There’s nearby docks where you can park your boat for free.

There’s also a free kayak and standup paddle board launching area.

Parking is free.

HINT: Get to DuBois Park early. Parking fills up fast.
