Went here primarily to go swimming, but also found a decent cafe (basic, but quality food), places to walk/camp, a nice *clean* beach, a pier to go watch the fishing, and an inlet pool that seems to trap hot water.

In all honesty, I have been to this park mostly for birdwatching but have taken note of the facilities. There are many facilities there for other types of recreation. I have walked around the beach which seems nice. There is a snack bar that was being renovated when I last visited, before, you could get sandwiches there. I don't know... More

Sebastian inlet is a beautiful state park with great facilities. There is a beach on the lagoon and several piers for fishing. The inlet itself is kind of wild, being the division between the Indian River and Atlantic Ocean. The water is a clear deep turquoise and there is a strong current. Stay safe and swim only in areas that... More

Need I say more than the title? Whether fishing off the pier or in a boat, you will catch a fish. If you are in a boat, you do have to be careful because the currents going from the ocean to the bay are quite strong. Since Brevard county is home of the greatest surfer ever, Kelly Slater and has... More

This is a very nice, clean state park. Known for its beaches and fishing as well as a good place to see dolphin and manatees. We chose to kayak around the inlets and enjoy the wildlife. The park is excellent for families planning a day picnic or fun at the beach. But if you kayak or canoe, this is a... More

This is a great park - cost only $8 per car. This covers both sides of the inlet but you have to drive between the two. Very popular for fishing from the piers on either side of the inlet. There are lovely beaches on the north side of the park. The most popular was the small bay with picnic benches... More

This is a beautiful state park - at the tip of the bridge you can watch fishermen pulling in fish every few seconds -- fishing IS THAT GOOD there... You can have a walk around the area and spot dolphin and manatees quite frequently. We love to take our dog for a walk around the park, stop by for a... More

This are has two jetties for fishing and a bridge that you can fish off of. There is a bait shop on site that has everything you need from tackle to bait to snacks. There is a very nice wide beach at this park also. The fishing is really good here - there is a swift current in the inlet... More

An entrance FEE state park on the inlet side. ocean side provides large waves for play, inlet side provides a quieter wave for little kids if you want them in the water. The inlet is a known manatee zone, there are signs stating this. So you can expect to see some manatee's. Be prepared to possibly be shocked at first,... More

There's a large pier where the majority of the fishing takes place but I will say that where I saw more of the action happen was off to the side- in the small inlets towards the highway. Guys were climbing down the rocks to small little sandy areas and pulling the fish out left and right while obviously having a... More
