John U. Lloyd Beach State Park

Hotels near John U. Lloyd Beach State Park, Hollywood (Florida), United States .

There's no shortage of scenic state parks in south Florida, where the wetlands meet the ocean. One of the most popular ones close to the city of Hollywood is John U. Lloyd Beach State Park, where locals and tourists alike flock on sunny days.

Located right off A1A, one of the most scenic roads in the entire state, John U. Lloyd Beach State Park is particularly special because of what it does for manatees. Within the park is Whiskey Creek, a manatee sanctuary designed to protect these gentle mammals from the perils of careless motor boat drivers. Getting a chance to see a manatee up close is a huge thrill for many children, and Whiskey Creek is one of the most popular spots in the park.

John U. Lloyd Beach State Park also offers access to a beach for swimming and surfing, numerous picnic pavilions for recreating and lunch, and two boat ramps. The most popular pastimes for visitors are fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Both kayaks and canoes can be rented for the day on-site, along with sailboats, paddleboats, and even pontoon boats. There are also barbecue grills for rent in case travelers didn't bring their own.

The beach along John U. Lloyd Beach State Park is also a popular sea turtle nesting ground, so there are occasionally conservation efforts underway to protect the small animals and their journey back into the sea. Light pollution is a big no-no at night on the beach, but that shouldn't be a problem for visitors, since the park is open daily from eight in the morning until sundown.

Many of the popular spots to stay in Hollywood proper are just a short drive from John U. Lloyd Beach State Park, including Montreal Inn, Desoto Oceanview Inn, and California Dream Inn.
