"Juno Beach is a town in Palm Beach County, Florida, United States. The population was 3,262 at the 2000 census. As of 2004, the population recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau is 3,391. Town was incorporated in 1953.
Juno Beach arose along the Atlantic shore of southeast Florida with the settlement of the Ocean dune by a small group of motel and tourist court owners. The town was incorporated in 1953 with approximately 130 year round residents and 1500 seasonal population. The town is located in an area with native civilization dating from 500 B.C. and European contact dating from sixteenth century A.D. Spanish exploration and settlement. Juno Beach is located on a barrier island along the Atlantic coastal ridge. Offshore lie Spanish wrecks dating from late 1500's to early 1600's. The barrier island was created by the cutting of the Intracoastal Waterway. The Waterway was dredged along the watershed of old Lake Worth Creek and cut through to Lake Worth in 1898. Ocean and Intracoastal provide part of the attraction of the Town of Juno Beach. - from town's website: www.juno-beach.fl.us
