John D. MacArthur Beach State Park
On the day of March 2, 2019, there will be no kayak rentals available or launching of a kayak from the public kayak launch, due to the Park's NatureScaping event.
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 may 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.
