It also has a boardwalk, providing beach access through the mangrove forest. The boardwalk is about ¾ a mile long and you can walk it or ride the tram that’s always running through the day. The tram is completely free.

Covering 712 acres, this park includes canals, barrier islands, and tidal pools. There are a lot of great wildlife and birds that you can see here, such as coastal birds, bald eagles, dolphins, and manatees. The barrier islands are Long Key, Inner Key, and Black Island.
It used to be that you could only get here by boat. Because of its remote location, it was a place where couples would come for dates, and that’s how it got its name. Finally, in 1965, there was a road built so that people could visit by car.
