Visit St. Marks Lighthouse

Florida St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and Lighthouse

Added by

If you are a wildlife enthusiast, or you just like some great beach scenery, this is the spot for you!

There are multiple out-and-back and loop hikes in this wildlife refuge, but the main attraction is the lighthouse along the Gulf Coast. Right next to the lighthouse is a pond where you are guaranteed to see several alligators. If you hike to the end of the levy across from the lighthouse you can catch an amazing sunset and the occasional dolphin sighting.

A great place to take your family to show them the wildlife or maybe a place to take that special someone for a relaxing sunset view.

Looks awesome

It's so close to me. Need to make some time and make it out there. Possibly get some drone footage.

Amazing Area St Marks Lighthouse

Loved the ease of getting here. The beauty of the swamp land is breathtaking. Salt/fresh water marshes, abundance of wildlife, and well traveled trails. This area hits it all. You can take amazing pictures and exercise all at the same time. Area is in full sun in a lot of areas but there is a nice wind most of the time
