Welcome to Tequesta

Why I Love Tequesta

“I love the fact that this community is built around the small fishing village mindset. Though it has grown in population and development over the years, you can still enjoy the small-town charm. You can enjoy the sunrise over the beach in the mornings, and will never tire of seeing the lighthouse on a drive over our beautiful waterways. We are able to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle just about 365 days a year, there truly is something for everyone here.”
