Daily, 24 hours


This small mainland component of the larger National Park is the most easily accessed portion. On the drive in, listen carefully in the summer for Mangrove Cuckoos and Black-whiskered Vireos calling from the mangrove edge. At the parking area, walk the brief waterfront trail to the point, watching for winter/spring Spotted Sandpipers on the rocks, Magnificent Frigatebirds overhead and Yellow-crowned Night Herons skulking at the water’s edge. Offshore keys included in the park can be excellent for migrant songbirds, but are accessible only by motorboat. January to April, Sunday tours are available to the keys, for a fee. Call (305) 230-1100 for details.
