“Unspoiled”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

Unspoiled and natural beach and wildlife habitat. This is what Florida looked like before the advent of the oceanfront high-rise.

“baby turtles crawling to mother ocean”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

Walking the beach before sunrise on Christmas morning has become a family tradition - we did not see the baby turtle then but during the summer. My husband and I spend a lot of time leading tours but are not with each other enjoying nature very often so we cherrish our time togehter just walking the beach beforing going to work. It was on one such walk we spotted a small hatchling struggling to get out in the surf. Against the odds we hope this little guy made it and will return as an adult.

“Outstanding Shoreline”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

Several miles of pristine beach and not too many people. Great for birding, swimming, picnicking, etc.

This park is off of Route A1A. It was clean and had facilities. Great place to visit the beach for the day. Very pretty refuge.

Reviewed December 4, 2011

A sensitive area for wildlife, but still an opportunity to enjoy a beautiful beach, and observe pelicans, shore birds and more.
