Do you rate on effort, or reality? The state of Florida did as well as it could with this park but didn't have much to work with. The beach is narrow and the day I was there so filled with seaweed that I wouldn't want even to wade in it. There are views of the bay and places to sit... More

I visited 2 weeks after peak monarch migration, and there were still lots of lovely butterflies to watch. The warblers were just starting to move in, and every place I stopped walking and raised up my binoculars had another delightful sighting. Don't miss the restaurants in Panacea across the bay.

Good bird watching areas, but the beach isn't as good as further out on alligator point. If your kids are looking to swim, save the four dollar entry fee and go down the road a couple miles to a public access area. Bald point is too close to the mouth of the river, so there is quite a bit of... More

This park is worth the visit if your in the area. It's really quiet and lots of wildlife and a fantastic place for great photographs. Not sure that I would come here to swim as the it's not really that sort of beach but it's still a beautiful area.

The lack of signs made our visit confusing but thanks to a chance conversation with another visitor, we learned that you have to go all the way to the end of the road to find the boardwalk trail. There are two "stops" before that -- the first a parking lot across from a beach access with a port-a-potty, and the... More

The beach side is full of wonder and shore birds such as pelicans, willets, sanderlings, gulls, terns and more. The marshy area is full of peace and different birds, fly catachers, mockingbirds and more. During a walk on the paths, we saw woodpeckers, cardinals, finches, and a lesser scaup on a pond. Saw very view people and soaked up the... More

Only saw two other people in as many hours. It is a *lovely* beach. Lots of seashells and horseshoe crab shells. Pristine white sand. Bring a picnic lunch and relax. It's gorgeous. Entry fee is $4. Memories, priceless.

This park is quite a drive off of Rt 98, but well worth it. There is a small beach area before you actually get to the park. The park itself has a nice trail that is all boardwalk out over the water. And there are two smaller trails that have canvas over the sand to allow strollers/wheelchairs on the sand... More

A great place for fishing, kayaking, bird watching or just relaxing. You won't find emerald green waters; the water is tea colored. This is not the best place for swimming. However, you will see tons of hermit crabs, fish jumping and the occasional dolphin. The facilities are clean and there are covered picnic areas with grills. Best of all there... More
