Kayakers and Paddleboarders (SUPS) will enjoy exploring the lagoon and natural wetlands. Turtle Beach has a boat launch area and fishing is permitted in the adjacent Blind Pass Lagoon. Newly improved facilities include pedestrian walkways, children’s playground, pavilion, handicap-access, boardwalk, and enhanced restrooms.
