Original Juno Beach Fishing Pier Historical Plaque

Created By: Town of Juno Beach


Note: You’ll find a second copy of the Original Juno Beach Fishing Pier at Stop 1.

At the east end of Mercury Road, you’ll find a historical plaque describing the original Juno Beach Pier and with interesting photos. It was made of steel and spanned 550 feet into the ocean.

Completed in 1950, it was part of a vision Bessemer Properties Corporation had for the development of Juno Beach. At that time, it was the only pier between Cape Canaveral to the north and Palm Beach, to the south. The pier was the major local attraction and was popular with both residents and visitors. Anglers came here to catch snook, bluefish, pompano, and sharks.

In 1984, a Thanksgiving weekend storm hurled 20-foot waves at the badly corroded structure, tearing out its center. The pier had become too damaged and costly to repair. As part of the demolition of the site, the fire department burned down the two-story entrance building in a training exercise; the pier was taken down the following year.
