For those of you who don't know, John D. MacArthur Beach State Park is the only state park in Palm Beach County, and what a magnificent beauty it is. As I drove through the parking lot on a Saturday morning, I couldn't help to notice how empty the parking lot was. I even questioned whether I was in the right place to go kayaking. but after seeing a few signs that confirmed I was, I just couldn't believe that more people weren't here to see the gumbo trees, cabbage palms, butterflies, pristine beaches and blue waters. Well, it didn't take me long to find a parking spot, and I went to rent my kayak. As I paddled away on my way to one of the small islands while enjoying the sea breeze and fresh water splashing on me, I was taken away by the natural beauty of this place. It's just you and the sea! I paddled and paddled until I reached Munyon Island. The views from the island are unparalleled. There used to be a lavish resort hotel there built by a Dr. Munyon, but it burned down in 1915. However, you don't need to kayak to find a beach to relax because 2 miles of white, pristine beaches are just steps from the parking lot. If time permits, you should visit the Nature Center to learn a little history before leaving. If you haven't done so already, I hope I have convinced you to spend a few hours at this stunning park.
