Breathtaking views, family friendly environment and an amazing experiences for everyone. Stopped at the beach to walk and see the great views and ended up getting engaged! Plus, was seeing two dolphins jumping and playing right off the shore. Best vacation ever!

What a beautiful beach preserve. We did a kayak tour in the estuary and it was thrilling...a manatee even swam under us an popped our kayak out of water! Take the trolley to Lovers Key for $2!

My husband and I saw a Pileated Woodpecker! Also looking for manatee, but the water temperature wasn’t right for them. We saw monarch butterflies, terns, squirrels, striped fish, berry bushes, and colorful foliage. Remember to wear a hat or take sunglasses with you. And big...More

Great beach! A quick tram ride from the parking lot and your at the beach. It wasn't crowded for a Wednesday during Spring Break which was a surprise. There is an entrance fee but it's reasonable, only $8 for 2-8 people.

I hate that parks in FL charge entry but there is a wonderful observation point right before the pay station at Lover's Key where you can see nature at its finest. Look out on the kayakers and paddle boarders on a mangrove lined waterway. We...More

Found this park not far from our rental home for spring break, and enjoyed the trails and beaches. Nothing fancy, but there was a company doing rental of bikes and kayaks.

The beach was great. A shuttle service takes you to the beach from the parking lot. Don’t be deceived by the signs advertising food sold at the beach shack though. They were out of most food when we were there and it’s not great quality...More

We drove into the State Park not realizing the beauty of this beach spot. My son experienced a group of horseshoe crabs swimming up to him at the shoreline. Also saw dolphins swimming in the inlet on the southwest end of the beach—great spot to...More

When you go to the beach you pay for parking and then you park . That is where you will see what you can rent. I have seen others outside the park and not sure how much or how long you can rent them .
