At the farthest tip of Jungle Island resides Parrot Cove, a newly renovated beach and floating aqua park that provides guests with hours of relaxation and entertainment. Once a barren parcel of land, Jungle Island transformed Parrot Cove into a sophisticated tropical beach playground that is exclusive for guests of the popular South Florida attraction.
Enjoy breathtaking views of Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami from plush lounge chairs, oversized-umbrellas and luxe-cabanas. While reading a book or making castles in the sand, beach-goers can order from an extensive menu and have food and drinks conveniently delivered to their chairs.
For water adventurers, Parrot Cove also boasts top-of-the-line Wibit equipment that floats on the bay. Make a splash on the massive Sports Park 60, which consists of balance beams, action tower, trampoline, bridge, cliff, high jump, catapult, slide and swing.
Park admission into Jungle Island includes access to Parrot Cove. There is a nominal fee to use umbrellas, cabanas and the aqua park. For guests’ safety, Jungle Island limits the water park to 60 people per hour. All activities take place under the watchful eye of certified lifeguards. Appropriate swimwear is required for aqua park and no denim shorts, hard materials (belt buckles, hard casts, jewelry, etc.).
