Jap Rock


Map & Directions

Jap Rock is located at the south end of Highland Beach, north of Spanish River Park. The outcrop extends discontinuously in the surf zone for 1.7 miles (2.7 km) to the north. Solution pits, lithified infillings, and laminated calcium carbonate crusts cover the surface, along with large and small burrows. Herringbone cross-bedding are present, as well as planar bedding. The cliffs are low and contain many notches.
