**EDIT**
I Finally figured out that the description page only takes decimal format, so here's the info in regular GPS format.
**EDIT**

The parking lot is at
N26 58.518'
W80 04.876'

The main part of the area is at
N26 58.712'
W80 05.045'

We took Indiantown Rd. to Hwy. 1 and turned left (North). After going over the Jupiter Federal Bridge (first major bridge after going on the 1) we turned right (east) on the first road to the right (Gomez Rd.). After rounding a corner to the left drive ~ 1.86 miles north to the parking lot. Look for the "Blowing Rocks Nature Preserve" sign.

Their address is:
Blowing Rocks Preserve
574 South Beach Rd.
Hobe Sound, Florida
(561) 744-6668
(561) 747-3113

Hello Meridian!

Are these GPS coordinates reversed? The first one points to the ocean shore, the second on to Rt. 1 at the parking lot.

If that's the case, is the first one precisely where the rocks on the beach (in the photos) are? Thanks!
