Gorgeous Views, Hot Summer
May 2021 • Couples
MacArthur State Beach park has a lot of activities for anyone to enjoy. (There is not enough shade, so it's advisable to bring a hat and sunblock as you're out.) We loved the boardwalk going toward the beach. The beach itself was gorgeous! Not crowded at all, very serene. There is a handicapped boardwalk leading up to the beach as well, rather than walking up/down steps. A beautiful summer visit!

One of the best places to visit!

The boardwalk to the beach is very scenic. It crosses over the inlet where the waters are calm and bright blue (at least on sunny days). We enjoyed walking through the mango trees and saw many butterflies and birds. Did not have time to kayak, but the prices were very reasonable and the area calm and protected, so would be good for any who want a beautiful, leisurely time on the water. There are some picnic tables along the boardwalk overlooking the water and there are many shady areas. The beach looked beautiful and not very busy, but we were really just there for the views. Highly recommend this if you want a peaceful, beautiful walk!

Long walk but the beach is worth it!
Apr 2021 • Family
Wanted to take the kids to a nice beach while in Florida so we heard about this beach at the state park. Now, because of Covid, a lot of things are closed, including the trams to take you across the 1/4 mile long pier to get to the beach. The beach was not that crowded and the water was very clean and clear! I would recommend wearing footwear on to the beach as the sand was very hot!

So glad we came!!!

We were looking for something to do to get away from the noise, hustle and bustle of the city and this was the perfect place. Beautiful, clean, and easy to get around. Good signage to let visitors know about the plants and animals in the area. Boardwalk is showing it’s age and could use some love, but don’t let that stop you. It’s the gateway to a spectacular and pristine beach!

We are state park junkies and I can tell you this one ranks in the top three. It is very clean and very accessible. It also has things to do for the entire family.

Absolutely beautiful park with nice “jungle” walking trails, kayak launch, access to a great stretch of beach on the Atlantic. Clean, safe, well maintained. Plenty of restroom facilities. Loved this park......stunning and beautiful. You can kayak for hours. Entrance fee is $5 per vehicle.

Is it a Jungle, Swamp, or Beach
Jul 2020 • Family
John D. MacArthur Beach State Park is everything the title mentions. Our family spent a couple hours visit in July. We enjoyed walking through the nature trails, across the bridge, and to the beach. There were many cool birds and wished we could have stayed for low tide to see more. Crossing the bridge we watched an adult and baby Manatee. Great place to get out, not crowded, and plenty to do.

Fun kayaking experience
Jul 2019 • Family
My son and I went kayaking from MacArthur state park. We saw fish swimming beside us. We went through the mangroves and saw many birds, fish and crabs. We stopped at little munion island and walked along the boardwalk. It was a wonderful experience.
