Don Pedro Island State Park

Don Pedro Island State Park is only accessible by private boat or ferry, but it’s definitely worth the short trip across the water. There are endangered species in this area, such as West Indian manatees, gopher tortoises, bald eagles, and American oystercatchers, so be sure to be on the lookout for the wildlife. The beach is one mile long with beautiful white sand where visitors can sunbathe, swim, snorkel, and look for sea shells. The entire park is 230 acres of land and is a popular area for hikers and nature lovers to explore. With a fishing dock, kayak launch, paddle boarding rentals, and picnic facilities, it’s easy to spend a few hours here!
