John D. MacArthur Beach

State Park - Florida

John D. MacArthur Beach State Park is located just north of Singer Island, Florida in North Palm Beach, Florida. Its land includes an Estuary crossed by a 1,600-foot (490 m) boardwalk, and Munyon Island (named after Dr. James Munyon), an offshore wilderness that was home to a lavish hotel, Hygeia Hotel, at the turn of the Twentieth century. Hiking trails and pavilions are open for public use on the island. The island is accessible only by kayak or boat. MacArthur Beach is widely known as a nesting ground for rare sea turtles, including the threatened loggerhead, the endangered green sea turtle and, occasionally, the exceedingly rare leatherback. Many endangered species of birds also visit the park, namely the peregrine falcon, the wood stork, and the least tern.
