- Windley Key is one the few places where you can see a coral reef that isn't underwater. This one rose to the surface eons ago and here it sits in fossilized splendor. Railroad entrepreneur Henry M. Flagler's construction crews quarried the rock from this site. Today, you can visit the Environmental Education Center, where regional history is chronicled. Nature trails wander through mangrove hammocks and in the quarrying area, you can take rubbings of ferns and coral. Quarry trails has a minimal admission fee; the educational center is free.
