  • Cool plants, cool people. The employee who met us told us all about local plants and history, and answered any questions we had about the island.
  • Beautiful place to explore. Lots to see, a great little hike and once you reach to top of Ethan's Tower the 360 view of the island can't be beat. Make sure you wear sunscreen and a hat and have fun exploring.
  • Good not great. Takes 2 hours to walk around it.
  • What an amazing place!! Every time my wife and I visit the preserve new features and events have been added. There is so much to see. A great chip covered orchid lined hiking trail takes you up to Ethan's Tower where there are spectacular views of the ocean and countryside. Another trail leads to a complete weather station and then goes on to a huge display of local edible plants. A winding boardwalk allows you to see first hand the various species found in a mangrove swamp. Plants are identified by their numbers as you continue through to the bush medicine areas. Along the way there are many water features that provide habitats for local plants and animals. We've also been to the youth oriented Halloween and Christmas parties. Great care was taken by the staff to engage the young people and provide multitudes of opportunities for learning about their environment. Whether you have a day or few hours the time spent at the Levy Preserve will make you anxious to return..
  • Best place EVER I learner so mucj
