We had so much fun! No dogs allowed on boardwalk after 10am but tons of sandy, walking room to go to different beach openings. There's a dog wash station, multiple dog water stands, and a beach toy bin for the kiddos. Bella loved it! Must have dogs on a leash and everyone was obeying. The only down side (if I... More

This a nice 2+ mile walk with several beach cut outs.this provides several chances to substitute beach for boardwalk. There were several burrows and tracks that we have liked to know more about.

This park is accessed by a long boardwalk. It is very popular walking area. If you are trying to get your 10,000 steps in a day it is an excellent place to walk.

A great place to walk and take in the natural dunes. Saw a number of turtles and other wildlife. Could see Ponce Inlet and the lighthouse. Have great walking shoes!

Did this several years ago. Although it is a long walk, for us, it is lovely. We enjoyed it very much and slept well that night.

Great boardwalk that you can circle around and around - if you want. This leads out to a wonderful beach with views of the Atlantic Ocean, Ponce Inlet, and the lighthouse. Swim, fish, or just relax (we had a picnic right on the beach). $10 entry fee at the parking lot.

We spent a pleasant time walking the catwalk/boardwalk which leads one around this natural site where sea turtles lay their eggs. It cost us 10 dollars to enter the site (it would be 20 dollars for an annual pass) and the experience was well worth the cost. We took our time and completed the entire circuit in a little over...

The boardwalk traverses the fragile dunes and lead to a great beach for walking and playing. It was away from the crowns and madness of the traffic and crowds. Loved it!
