John U. Lloyd Beach State Recreation Area

John U. Lloyd Beach State Recreation Area Review

The once pine-dotted natural area was restored to its natural state, thanks to government-driven efforts to pull out all but indigenous plants. Now native sea grape, gumbo-limbo, and other native plants offer shaded ambience. Nature trails and a marina are large draws as is canoeing on Whiskey Creek. The beaches are also excellent, but beware of mosquitos in summer! Amenities: parking (fee); toilets. Best for: solitude; sunrise.
