Went to the Grill and Gifts for a light lunch before walking the grounds and watching the folks fishing off the long pier. Shrimp and burger platters were tasty with very good fries to boot. Nice afternoon at an inexpensive $8.00 entry fee per car.

Never even knew of this place, but we're glad we found it. It's so peaceful. Great place to being families. Apparently it's a popular fishing spot. I like that the swimming area (for families with children) and beach are separated so you can a moment of relaxation. We didn't get the chance to hike the trails or check out the... More

Beautiful place - lots of fishing or just beach combing - a grille that sells good - which was pretty good considering it was a beachside place. Often they are canteen type places but this was a real place to get a nice lunch. Seating inside and out and clean bathrooms. Such apretty location - definitely worth a stop.

Lots of great beaches and picnic spots on A1A from the inlet park itself to Golden Shores and a few other beaches on the way. Friendly rangers and life guards. Lots of birds and beautiful sand and surf. Shells everywhere and super clean sand, walkways and rest rooms! Can't wait to visit again.

This state park is surrounding Sebastian Inlet which lies between Indian River county and Brevard county about 18 miles south of Melbourne. The drive on A1A is interesting as it is along the ocean and lagoon. The park has beachfront and lagoon front activities. It has an incredible fishing pier that lets you walk almost into the ocean as you... More

Been going to Sebastian for easily 45 years or so. Camping, fishing, surfing, access to off-shore or just hanging out. Its always represented a good part of what living in Florida has too offer.
