We went to the park to do some snorkeling. The water was a bit shallow but not to bad. The beach was a doggy beach with several dogs having a blast which is nice to see since most beaches in Florida are pet free.

Nice place to take photos. Also found slightly larger shells on the beach. We were there early and were able to watch surfers. Long jetty with great views. Wooden walkways throughout park with plenty of covered pavilions.

Great place to visit. Maybe we should have planned our visit a little bit better: it's quite a climb on a hot afternoon. But the incredible 360° view on the top did make up for that though ! Learning about the history of the lighthouse...More

There is a nice dog beach at the park. Dogs must be leashed but they still enjoy the water As for the lighthouse dogs are not permitted
