The Palm Beaches, Florida: Nature, Adventure and Outdoor Fun

In The Palm Beaches, Florida, you’ll find plenty of attractions that appeal to anyone who enjoys being in touch with nature. Its 75 km of coastline between Orlando and Miami receives visitors with an ideal subtropical climate in any season. Check out some excellent options below to make your outdoors vacation in The Palm Beaches unforgettable!

John D. MacArthur Beach State Park

The Palm Beaches are home to John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, boasting the best-preserved native environment in the area – so much so that it will make you forget you're so close to the more urbanized areas of downtown. The park deserves to be explored on foot, on a pleasant hike along trails lined with several rare and endangered species of plants and picnic tables to rest and grab a bite.

There are also great options for water activities at the park. Rent a canoe or kayak for touring the Intracoastal Waterway and exploring the estuary, greeting some of its most illustrious residents – manatees, great blue herons and ospreys. By the ocean you will find a haven for relaxed sunbathing. The beach is an important nesting area for sea turtles, and you can also see the amazing local marine wildlife very close up while snorkeling.

See The Palm Beaches from the Water

Near John D. MacArthur Beach State Park is the Sailfish Marina and Resort, with its fleet of some of the best fishing boats in the world. More adventurous travelers can head out and experience the excitement of sport fishing. Those who choose to stay on land will be able to enjoy amazing views from the marina and taste assorted local seafood. If, after visiting the marina, you find yourself wanting to stay, the comfortable lodging will make you feel like you’re on a tropical island.

And to see the best of The Palm Beaches, a ride in the DivaDuck amphibious bus is a fun option. After riding through the streets and seeing the area’s greatest attractions, prepare to get another look from a whole new vantage point. The bus becomes a boat and takes you on a tour of the Intracoastal Waterway.

Family Fun at Lion Country Safari

One of the most amazing attractions in The Palm Beaches is Lion Country Safari, which ensures an adventure in the jungle right here on the Florida coast! This is the only park of its kind in the state, and a fantastic place to enjoy great moments with your family and friends.

Explore the park’s trails on foot or by car, and get up close with more than 900 wild animals of various species. For an even more incredible experience, follow my advice and go for the VIP tour. You’ll be joined by a personal tour guide, who will take you into restricted areas where you can feed giraffes, pet rhinos and giant tortoises and get even closer – safely, of course – to the lions, buffaloes, zebras and many others.

Come discover why so many people have chosen The Palm Beaches as their preferred holiday destination. You will be welcomed with open arms.
