John D. MacArthur Beach State Park is a unique mix of coastal and tropical hammock and mangrove forest, and a haven for 7 rare or endangered native tropical and coastal plant species and 22 species of animals designated as endangered or threatened. Visit the MacArthur Beach Nature Center to learn more through videos presentations, interpretive exhibits, and educational programs. Then walk the Dune Hammock Trail, and delight in a forest of gumbo limbo, strangler fig, and other tropical and subtropical trees, or the Satinleaf Trail to observe how plant communities change amid subtle elevation changes. Pick up a self-guiding brochure at the trailhead. The park is also a stop along the Great Florida Birding Trail. There is a 1,600-foot boardwalk to the beach where you can enjoy swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, and fishing, or you can board the free tram service. Launch your canoe and kayak, or rent one on-site to explore the calm estuary, Lake Worth Lagoon, and Munyon Island. Note, tide must be high to kayak. There are many accessible amenities including a ramp to beach and beach wheelchairs.
