Fodor's 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. You might even get to see a few manatees! A 4,000-square-foot nature center 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.
