Considered the wealthiest town in the United States, Jupiter Island is the southernmost of Florida's three Barrier Islands (the other two being Hutchinson and Orchid Islands). Located off the border of Martin County's Treasure Coast (directly north of West Palm Beach and Palm Beach County), 17-mile long Jupiter Island's legendary relationship with wealth began in 1715 when the Spanish Plata Fleet wrecked right off the coast spewing tons of silver and gold coins. Many of these coins are still found today only inches below the sand of Jupiter Island.
