The beach section was closed due to red tide so we didn’t get to see much besides walk on the trail along the intercostal. The visiting center was very nice inside with interesting articles and photos. It’s a nice quiet place for family with young...More

Quiet beach, calm, peaceful and full of serenity. Bring your bike (and sunscreen!!) so you can spend the day biking some of those lovely back roads in Hobe Sound.

It's on the honor system. Requested is $2.00. You drop the money in a box at the entrance. Have a great time.
