Fort Zachary State Park is home to a 19th-century coastal defence fortress, a stunning beach, and plenty of outdoors activities. The beach here is one of the best in the region but is quite rocky, so proper footwear is recommended. Daily fort tours are free of charge and available twice daily, at 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM.
