“Home of many shark attacks”

The Ponce de Leon Inlet is a natural opening in the barrier islands in central Florida that connects the north end of the Mosquito Lagoon and the south end of the Halifax River to the Atlantic Ocean. It is the site of the town of Ponce Inlet, Florida and the Ponce de Leon Inlet Light.  Surfers and spinner sharks congregate at the river mouth waiting for a choice wave or tasty morsel to come their way. In 2008, there were 23 attacks, breaking the previous record of 21, but none so far has been fatal.

The entrance fee is now $6.95 if I can remember correctly, but still well worth it. If you've done other FL lighthouses, this one is a little more difficult as it only has one railing, but the view from the top is fantastic. There's a great woodsy trail to walk and there's a heartbreaking exhibit with rafts that have washed ashore, presumably from Cuban refugees. The lighthouse is tucked away so the area is nice and quiet and off the beaten path. There's lots of great places to sit and picnic nearby and there's an adorable lighthouse cat that hangs around the main house.

The whole area is great for spending the day only by paying $5 per person for entering. In my point of view this money seems nothing if you take in mind what this place has to offer you.

Playgrounds, pathways to walk, great beach to swim and the lighthouse stands as a landmark calling you to visit.

After climbing more than 200 stairs I got some great photographs while visiting this special little treasure of Ponce Deleon Inlet Lighthouse.

Although I got tired I do not regret getting in! Totally worth it!

The 200+ step stairway is a killer, but it is well worth it! The view from atop is breathtaking. The lighthouse has a small museum, and around the ground area is neatly kept, and clean. This is a wonderful place to take your kids, and the whole family.
