St. Andrew's State Park

The former military reservation site offers over a stretch of white sands and waters that are perfect for snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving, and more. Anglers can cast their lines from the shore or the park's fishing pier. The nature trail at the park is ideal for hiking, birdwatching, and wildlife observation.

What's most unique about the park is not its scenery, however, but the Gran Maze, a labyrinth the size of a football field; the first of its kind in the United States.
