North Peninsula State Park
Almost three miles of beautiful, unspoiled Florida beach beckons visitors to this park. Bask in the sunshine, enjoy an afternoon swimming in the refreshing waters of the Atlantic Ocean, or try a hand at surf fishing. During the months of May through September, marine turtles including the loggerhead, green, and occasionally a rare leatherback sea turtle, journey to the shores of North Peninsula State Park to nest. Across State Road A1A down Highbridge Road, Smith Creek Landing offers access to the Intracoastal Waterway where visitors can crab or fish along its banks. A bicycle maintenance station has all the tools necessary to perform bike repairs for cyclists enjoying a ride down the Ormond Scenic Loop (http://ormondscenicloopandtrail.com/). It is the perfect spot to picnic and rest after hiking the two mile Coastal Strand Trail. This trail offers visitors the chance to see rare creatures such as indigo snakes and gopher tortoises. Bird-watchers will enjoy spotting the native and migratory species seen in this park. Located on State Road A1A four miles south of Flagler Beach.
