Description:
This site is a tiny non-profit educational facility in Loggerhead Park. There are saltwater tanks and exhibits that introduce visitors to loggerhead, green, and leatherback sea turtles; all of which nest on Atlantic beaches in Florida. Public turtle walks are conducted on evenings in June and July (reservations required). There is a lookout tower that provides a nice view of the Atlantic Ocean.

Watchable wildlife:
Brown pelicans, laughing and ring-billed gulls, terns, and a variety of shorebirds are seen from the beach. Look for sea turtle tracks on the beach on summer mornings.
