Directions

ohn D. MacArthur Beach State Park is located 2.8 miles south of the intersection of U.S.1 and PGA Blvd. on A1A in North Palm Beach.

Where are we going today?

A unique mixture of coastal and tropical hammock and mangrove forest, this barrier island provides a haven for several rare or endangered native tropical and coastal plant species. The park's Nature Center shows visitors why the park is a biological treasure. Visitors can swim, picnic, and surf at the beach; scuba diving and snorkeling are also popular activities. Birdwatchers can see herons, brown pelicans, terns, sandpipers, and gulls. Anglers can fish in the lagoon by wading, kayaking, or canoeing. They can also fish from non-swimming areas of the beach.

    The entire family loved seeing the new Nature Center exhibit. It has new viewing tanks with Loggerhead turtles, fish, snakes and all sorts of creatures.. The kids loved riding the cart across the estuary to the beach and we even saw spoonbills and pelicans.
    We are going back to do the kayaking in the estuary and a I want to do the photo workshop next month. This is a uncrowded gem of a park.
