John D. MacArthur Beach State Park
The Florida Park Service has reopened our beach as conditions have improved. Please be aware, some visitors may be sensitive and experience respiratory issues and or eye irritation, due to the possible presence of red tide.
Welcome to John D. MacArthur Beach State Park
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; snorkeling is also a popular activity. Birdwatchers can see herons, brown pelicans, terns, sandpipers and gulls. Anglers can fish in the lagoon by wading or kayaking. Additionally, visitors can fish from non-swimming areas of the beach.
