The key attractions in Dry Tortugas

The Dry Tortugas makes up for what is a pristine group of seven small islands located in the Gulf of Mexico, at the fringe of the Florida Keys in Miami. This is another sand and sea haven that has joined the privileged group of national parks in America. Here are some of the key attractions in Dry Tortugas National Park.

Fort Jefferson is located on one of these islands. This in itself is one of the most magnificent structures in America, it being the biggest masonry structure in the country. It is an unfinished coastal fortress with a unique history which is enough to catch the fancy of inquisitive travelers.

The Dry Tortugas offers a scenic view unlike any, which is a most refreshing shade of the blue ocean that composes the majority of the whole national park. This park is also known for its shallow waters, which makes it more interesting and convenient for snorkeling and other fun-filled water activities.

The bustling coral reefs offer the chance to get up close and personal with a lot of marine life, which include the most colorful fish and aquatic flora. And as if the water wasn’t interesting enough with this biological abundance, the Dry Tortugas also features a most lovely offering of bird life.

It may not be as big as other national parks, and yet perhaps there lies its charm. In its sheer intimacy, the Dry Tortugas gives one the best mix of peace and diversity that only the best of nature can bring.
