The Lower Gulf Coast Sights



Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park

Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park Review

This wide, virtually untouched expanse—about 166 acres—of open beach makes visitors feel transported from the bustling high-rises and resorts just a few blocks south. A full roster of eco-inclined features, like a designated fishing zone, hard-bottom reef (one of the only ones in the region and close enough to swim up to), boat dock, and observation tower, hook anglers, nature lovers, and water sports enthusiasts drawn to the peaceful, laid-back vibe. Moms and dads love the educational displays on the local environment and the ranger-led sea turtle and birding programs, not to mention the picnic tables, grills, and plenty of shade offshore. Take note, however, that everything is BYO; the park doesn't have any rentals or concessions. Amenities: showers; toilets; parking (fee). Best for: snorkeling; solitude; walking.
