“Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

We visited the site three times in our 11 day stay on SPI. Saw a variety of birds each time in addition to crocs on two of the visits. Relaxing way to spend time under a variety of weather conditions.

“Wonderful Relaxing View of the Island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2011

A quiet, meandering stroll along this boardwalk started the day great. It was nice to get away from the crowds and enjoy nature the way it should be.
