Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast Sights



John D. MacArthur Beach State Park

John D. MacArthur Beach State Park Review

If getting far from rowdy crowds is your goal, this spot on the north end of Singer Island is a good choice. Encompassing 2 miles of beach and a lush subtropical coastal habitat, inside you'll find a great place for kayaking, snorkeling at natural reefs, bird-watching, fishing, and hiking. A 4,000-square-foot nature center renovated in 2011 has aquariums and displays on local flora and fauna, and there's a long roster of monthy activities, such as surfing clinics, art lessons, and live bluegrass music. Guided sea turtle walks are available at night in season, and daily nature walks depart at 10 am. Check the website for times and costs of activities. Amenities: water sports; parking (fee); toilets; showers. Best for: swimming; walking; solitude; surfing.
