Top 5 Things To Do

  1. Enjoy a stroll along the park’s iconic causeway to view the many types of wildlife, such as birds and alligators, that call the marsh home. 
  2. Take a self-guided audio tour or docent-led tour of Atalaya, a National Historic Landmark. The picturesque, Moorish-style home was the winter retreat of renowned 20th-century sculptor, Anna Hyatt Huntington and her husband, philanthropist and Spanish scholar, Archer Huntington. 
  3. Wake up early and enjoy a breathtaking sunrise on the three-mile beach. Then explore the jetty, take a swim, fish or relax with a book. 
  4. Take part in a Coastal Exploration Program with a naturalist to learn about the park’s abundant wildlife or learn a new hobby, such as kayaking, beachcombing or birding. 
  5. Last but not least, stop by the Gift Shop for refreshments and souvenirs!
