Fodor's 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 mosquitoes in summer! On Wednesday and Friday in June and July, park rangers lead sea turtle awareness programs that include an educational presentation and a beach patrol to search for nesting loggerhead turtles. Advance reservations are required. Amenities: parking (fee); toilets. Best for: solitude; sunrise.
