A great place to enjoy. So beautifully kept. A great place to sit and view the waters all around. Sit, relax and clear your mind. Sit out there and read. Plenty of benches and shade.

We love to stroll through the Sanctuary as it is very peaceful and view of the Sebastian Inlet is magnificent. Being a veteran it is a place to reflect on all my comrades who didn't come back from Vietnam. How lucky I am!

Beautiful setting and wonderful walk around the island. A memorial for each war our people served. Sobering and awe inspiring. Many headstones of local people ...many gave but some gave their lives. Important to always remember.
