This place was recommended as a good place to see manatees. As we were in the area in July, it was not really manatee season., and we were disappointed not to see any on our first visit. Despite that, it was a nice serene walk....More

We were there the last week of June (2018) and it was time for the males to 'power-struggle' each other for breeding rights.... so many manatees splashing and tail-flapping and rolling! We were there for 3 hours, I took 1500 photos AND we saw two...More

We have enjoyed many trips to this park and always spot manatees. Just make sure to bring bug spray or are covered with clothing!

The most beautiful beach park in Vero Beach. It has services and most of all the most wonderful beach! 10 minutes drive from downtown Vero Beach. You should also explore the Riverside of the park, if you are lucky you may spot some manatees!!

The park is pretty with great parking. We walked the bridge over the water and saw probably a dozen manatees swimming in the water below us. There a very pretty path through the trees to more water. There are decent bathrooms on site.

This is a must stop when we show off visitors to Vero Beach. The drive south is 10 miles of manicured barrier island development. Round Island itself is a regular destination for families of manatees, and is has a beautiful boat ramp for motor boats...More
