What You Need To Know

The Southeast Intracoastal Waterway Park is a 114-acre piece of land located between Crescent Beach and Fort Matanzas National Monument. A scenic overlook gives visitors a spectacular view of the historic Fort Matanzas as well the natural beauty of the salt marsh and Matanzas River. Over to the right of the scenic overlook, you can find trails leading you through coastal scrub, which is full of live oaks and the occasional dandelions and scattered flowers. These two different ecosystems give visitors the opportunity to engage with two diverse Florida habitats. Salt marshes play multiple roles for the environment, they help keep the water clean and act as nursery grounds for aquatic animals, and they are home to incredible animals such as manatees, oysters, and wading birds. Southeast Intracoastal Waterway Park is a great spot to observe and walk through Florida’s natural beauty
