Great place to watch sunsets, white sand beach. Very large park with lots of acreage, fun for all. Tram runs during day from parking lot to beach. Bring the bug spray, lots of no-see-ums!

Great bird and manatee watching!! Bike tails have amazing views. Plan on spending the day enjoying the park. The toll to entry is worth every penny.
