Not much there when we were there, a couple of birds, but very pretty. The drive there on the jungle trail is awesome, watch for all the blue crabs on the side of the road.

This lovely refuge deserves a bigger sign so you can see where to turn off A1A. And, when you get in, there should be better signage about where to go to pick up the trails. But once you know these things, it's a lovely place to stroll. You can look out over the water from two high vantage points.

Certainly worth the 40 minute drive from Vero Beach. Make a day out of it and dine on fresh fish platters just up the road!
