Located off of Heckscher Drive on the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve, Huguenot Memorial Park is a must see! The waterfront park sits on a 295-acre horseshoe-shaped peninsula surrounded by the St. Johns River the Fort George Inlet, and the Atlantic Ocean.
While there you can lounge on the beach, bike, swim, paddle, surf, fish, bird watch, picnic and camp! As a part of the The park offers 70 primitive campground sites, so you can stay and play over multiple days. Huguenot is part of the Florida Birding Trail and is one of the best birding sites on the east coast- over 250 species of bird have been recorded on site!
A huge portion of the park is designated as a critical wildlife area. Keep your eyes open and you’ll spot tons of wildlife including birds, dolphins, manatees and turtles. Make sure to check out the nature center, where you can learn about the flora and fauna along the beach through games and interactive exhibits. The center is open daily from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
