The park is a prime location so that you can enjoy the beach and water on the ocean side (with good snorkeling as well) and kayaking / boating on the intracoastal waterway side (the cruise ships and some cargo ships pass up and down all day long on the IC waterway--entertaining to watch). The beach itself is a short walk... More

This is a nice ocean front park with very friendly staff members. There was a lot of sea grass on the beach & in the water but that's beyond their control. They fore-warned us of this upon entering the park

Lovely kayaking in the mangroves :-) great people around and no boats when you head south. Easy beginners area, for more experienced too! Enjoy the beach after!

We came here during July 4th weekend, and most of the beaches in the area were packed with people. However, this beach was one of the only ones that was not so crowded. However, you do have to pay 6 dollars to get in (a max of 4 people per car I believe). However, it was worth it since it... More

I found the $6 entrance fee to be quite reasonable, but I wish they used some of that money to clean up the park. There are very few signs on the main roads that direct you to the beaches/parking lots so you have to guess which parking lot will bring you to which beach. When I visited I had no... More

Shell out $6 to pass the toll booth. Take winding road through mangroves and choose your parking spot. And then... seemingly private beaches, rocky coves, pristine as the Old Florida was before concrete. You could spend a whole day here - there are also restrooms and vending machines near the parking lot. Be sure to walk out to the pier... More

Not our cup of tea. $6 entrance fee. Boat ramp and kayak rentals. Great if you are the outdoors type and like to fish and picnic. Picnic tables and Pavilions for reserve. Walked through the woods to get to the beach. Will not go back. Would rather just go to the beach.

Very nice beach, located near the Fort Lauderdale harbour. The sand is nice, but there is some seaweed that can be disturbing. Nonethless, the visit is worth it.
