I absolutely love this beach!! When I am able to get away and have ME time this is the place I go. When you park down at the end and walk down the bike trail you see a trail out to the main beach this is where I like to go, you feel secluded because most of the people are... More

Perfect place to park your camping gear and do some fishing either in the inlet, river, or ocean. Lots of fishing room on either side of the inlet and under the bridge. Day passes available to fish, swim, sunbathe, or surf. Birding is exceptional in the winter.

We checked this park out during out recent family vacation. We love our State Parks while vacationing and we are so happy to have visited this one. There is a little lagoon for snorkeling, and good for little ones to get in the water. We seen a manatee attempting to come in the lagoon, however a family were swimming towards... More

Great place for fishing, snorkeling, swimming, surfing, and seeing some of Florida's awesome nature up close. The best time to go for most of these activities is summertime, when the water is calmer and clearer. You will need to come well-prepared though and bring everything needed to do whatever it is you plan to do, since it is fairly remotely... More

We decide to check out the park while staying at Melbourne Beach. Next time we will have to bring our swim gear. They have a great looking tide pool. Walking around the park was fun. They have a restaurant, shop, 2 museums, fishing pier and more. We spent most of our time on the pier where we saw a pelican,... More

Loved this park! Absolutely beautiful! Husband loved the fishing on the jetty, while we walked on the beach. Also enjoyed the Treasure Museum that was only $2.00! Lovely, Clean and lots to do!

I only went here once and I've lived in the area for several years. It's a nice place to go hang out, they have a swimming area roped off on the north side. You'll want to stay a while because... they charge you to get in. My only real complaint, because they charge you to get in, is they don't... More

There are other options, all natural and uncrowded (and free) nearby, but Sebastian Inlet State Park is THE beach in this lovely undiscovered Treasure Coast area and it’s worth the price of admission. There are park areas and jetties on both sides of a charming inlet with river and oceanside beaches. On a windy afternoon, we opted to enjoy the... More

A well appointed state park. Loved the manatees in the inlet, was able to swim right up to them and if you wait, they just may swim to you. The inlet is great for small kids or if you don't like waves. There were many on the pier so it must have been good fishing. The surf was rough and... More
