16/32.- Palm Beach Area. Singer Island: John D. MacArthur Park


At the other end of the island from Palm Beach Shores you’ll find the John D. MacArthur Beach State Park. A nominal fee is charged for entry. This 1,600 foot boardwalk spans Lake Worth Cove and affords expansive views of the surrounding area. See if you can spot herons, ospreys and vegetation such as mangroves as you walk across. Can’t be bothered walking? Not to worry, there is a free shuttle which will carry you over. When you get to the other side you can follow a trail that winds through subtropical trees. There’s also a beautiful private beach where turtles nest from May through to August.

The Visitor’s Center at the park is also worth a visit. Check out the video that relates the evolution of the park. Friendly staff will answer your questions with charm and a smile.
