A 1.5-mile boardwalk, which includes an observation tower, passes
over dunes and dredge spoil and provided crossovers to the water's
edge for views of birds along the Atlantic beach front, Ponce de
Leon inlet, and the northern stretch of the Indian River.
Black skimmers and least terns nest here from April through July.
RESPECT POSTED AREAS; KEEP DOGS LEASHED. Bottlenosed dolphins are
often seen in the inlet and ocean. Winter brings many birds here,
including common loons, red-breasted mergansers, and northern
gannets. Wading birds fish along the river, and a variety of
shorebirds, as well as brown pelicans, ospreys, and gulls are
present throughout the year. You may see gopher tortoise, beach
mice, and raccoons from the boardwalk.
