Very nice!

Arrived by boat! Pull up on the beach! Cool place. Nice, clean, white sand. Walk the shoreline to the shell trees and enjoy!

It was a red flag day on the beach the day we visited, so we rode the tram back up and rented a two person kayak and went to the estuary. We saw Manatees less than 50 feet from the launch sight. Never having seen one before, it was awesome! All of the people working in the park were so... More

A beautiful and clean beach w/ soft sugar sand. Peaceful and quiet to hear yourself think. Parking was not a problem. Great to walk on. Easy to get to.

Beautiful beach with a lot of wildlife. A tram takes you to the beach. There are bathrooms and a concession stand for food and snacks. We go back there every year!!

We went to this state park for the first time this past weekend. While the canoe/kayak launch was handy, I felt like there could have been more opportunities to explore this island. There are three parking lots but only one trail. The beach was adequate and there is a scenic walk over to it. Supposedly a cart ride over to... More

The views are beautiful and definitely worth the walk back to the fishing dock. There was a lot of ghost crabs to look at!

We spent our last afternoon in Florida at this state park. It was fairly easy to navigate and the beach was beautiful! We really wished we had enough time to rent a kayak to view manatees or the many fish we saw from the bridges!

Cloudy day - saw one gopher turtle, one small alligator, fish, a few osprey and some shore birds. Several people were walking quietly along the nature trail and bicyclists sped passed us talking as if they were in there livingroom. A few bicyclists quietly passed and stopped along trail to read placards. Beach is nice - and overall this is... More
