John Lloyd Park is one of the nicest, well maintained park I have visited. The cliffing is unfortunate as it makes it difficult to stroll the beach but the view and facilities are hard to pass up.

Great clean beach. Families getting together, people playing beach volleyball. Lifeguard on south side of pier, available outdoor showers plenty of parking and nice restaurant - quarterdeck. Good spot to take kayak out and some kitesurfers around.

We always have been here on Saturday afternoon. We drive until the end of the park and wait for the cruises to leave the port. We all feel like kids saying good bye to the vessel. Nice experience, easy parking. I hope next time we can spend here more time and enjoy the beach and nature.

Great place for swimming, can look at airplanes departures from Fort Lauderdale airport while on the beach. Great place for suntan as well.

The entrance fee for me, alone in a car, was $4.00. Very reasonable. The beach that runs along the eastern boundary of this park tends to be secluded and far less populated than the extension of that beach that stretches southward into the free, public beach by and beyond the pier. There are restrooms and picnic pavilions in this park.... More

This is a beautiful natural preserve of dunes, trees and wildlife, away from all crowds, with of course pristine sand and warm green water. The clientele are upscale and mature. It's a paradise. Please keep it a secret.

Well maintained State Park, we went for turtle season to see them lay their eggs in a protected habitat. Informational course is interesting, have to sign up!
