Fort Pierce: The path to breathtaking beaches( PHOTO COURTESY FLORIDA'S STATE PARKS )
The most striking feature of this park are its magnificent beaches, a true tropical coastal experience. Swimming, snorkeling, surfing, and scuba diving are popular activites, as well as beachcombing and picnicking in one of the prettiest settings along the Atlantic coast.
Dynamite Point was once the training site for WWII Navy Frogmen, but is now a haven for birdwatchers. Along the south end of the park, Fort Pierce Inlet is a popular place for anglers. You'll also find boaters who pull ashore for swimming.
A primitive youth/group campground is available on a reservation basis.
Where is it? Four miles east of Fort Pierce, via North Causeway
