  • The weather was not great today as it was pouring rain. Did not see many people around in the beach areas. Our family came looking for geocaches but we were s little misguided and due to the rain they...  more »

  • I came here for the beach as I imagine many do, and I must say this may be my new go-to beach. Everything is so spread out so you can really get your privacy. Many different pavilions, but there is a 6 dollar entrance fee (unless you're a Nova student attending the Oceanographic Center). They have sections with grills and tables, and of course the beach itself. There's an alcohol prohibition, but let's be real, no one is gonna follow that. All things considered, I am definitely coming back.
  • BEWARE! Our locked 2017 car was broken into and the thieves stole all of my moms credit cards and all cash while we were paddle boarding for 1 1/2 hours. They knew what they were doing... Didn't break any glass and only stole cards and cash didn't take and devices or ids. That said, the park and all its attractions are amazing. But do not leave anything valuable in your car. We reported it to the state park but unfortunately they don't monitor the parking lots.
  • I had to pay to get in, the pavilion was a nightmare to find, signs way to small. The pavilion was nice, decided to go see the beach area. I had to climb down a mountain to go see dirty water full of rocks! Why are they not refreshing these Beaches with new sand like they do everywhere else? Not sure I would come back..
  • Part of the Great Florida Birding Trail, this park is easily accessible by car or boat. Beach on the east side, Whisky Creek on the west side. Ample parking, snorkeling​, biking, hiking, canoeing​, kayaking. Picnic shelters, Barefoot Mailmen trail. Restoration of native plant species, June-July turtle programs on Wednesday and Friday nights, and other improvements make this park worth a visit.
  • Great place to enjoy the beach. No open containers​ aloud so be sure to bring cups. And be sure to check flags for your marine warnings.
