Dutton Island Preserve, Atlantic Beach Reviews
I love fishing here. There's tons of variety in the water on any given day. Reds, flounder, spots, black drums, crabs, pinfish just to name a few. Sometimes I like to cast out over the bridge just before the dirt road, but be careful not to snag your line on the oyster beds. The fishing pier is always a fun spot and offers excellent views of the intracoastal waterway. Amenities include restrooms, showers, picnic areas, kayak launches, and campgrounds. Bring plenty of bug spray during the warm months.
Dutton Island has a special kind of magic if you tap into nature's energy. It is serene and a great place to walk your dog. There are two seperate places to explore. It is not busy here and I come here often, so again, a great place to walk your dog or get some peace and quiet. Wear bugspray at all times. Bring extra bug spray. This is a marsh, so the mosquito population matches China's population and then some. With copious deet, you will not have a problem.
Staten Island is awesome you can go there and have peace and enjoy the nature over the park
For any of you Travelers who enjoy quiet secluded marshlands you should check this place out, "it's absolutely beautiful! I've seen it in the evening time right before dusk, but I haven't been there yet in the morning. I haven't had the chance to snap any photos out there yet either, but I can't wait to be able to; I plan on doing it one morning this spring.
Really fun place! Really enjoy it. Me and my friends go fishing there, eat BBQ... There's also paths where you can walk, and a boat ramp. Nice place.
