Coconut Point Sanctuary is a 62-acre habitat of coastal strand, oak scrub, coastal oak forest, and mangrove forest located on Melbourne Beach, FL. Coconut Point Sanctuary rolls over ancient sand dunes from the Atlantic Ocean to the Indian River Lagoon and once was the early Native Americans, known as the Ais Indians, residence. Juan Ponce de Leon also set foot in the same location in 1513.
Despite its history, Coconut Point Sanctuary is a nature lovers' dream with a short hiking trail that contains an observation platform over the Indian River Lagoon. Its an ideal spot to view shorebirds, juvenile sea turtle, osprey, and maybe even a pod of dolphin.
