What a beautiful area. We really enjoyed ourselves and loved watching our grandsons (5 & 9) play in the surf and build moats & castles. Great place to relax and take it all in.

Whether you want to fish, picnic, or just enjoy the view, Sebastian Inlet is the best place around. There is a fantastic tide pool for little people to play.

We really like this park and have going there for years. It really depends on when you go, which is never a certain thing. Sometimes the surfing is amazing, and sometimes it is not. We don't fish, but sometimes we see people catch, and sometimes not. The "bike path" is a joke. It's like riding across someone's unkempt lawn. The... More

Not sure if it was just the timing of what but we caught absolutely no fish in the 9 hours we were there. We did have a net that we caught a lot of bait with.. But we didn't catch the real fish that the bait shops talked about. It was a nice place though because we saw a lot... More

We came here and walked around and snorkels, it was absolutely beautiful! Loved every moment, and found some beautiful shells and different sea life, from ghost crabs, fiddler crabs, hermit crabs, and various fish!

I have lived in Brevard County most of my life and have been going to Sebastian Inlet since the late 1950. As it now a State Park even the residence (whom pay taxes for the Inlet) are charged $10 to enter, tourist I believe are charged $15. There are no showers and the beach is the same as all on... More

This park is one serious fishing spot--at all hours. It's like an all-nigh pharmacy as fishing people arrive at all hours of the day. Some sit in beach chairs on the fishing pier and catwalk all night long. Taking cat naps in the chairs and then continue with fishing. What I like most about the park is the calm pond... More

We decided to drive down here from Melbourne beach since we had some friends in town, it's a neat little place, an area to swim and an area to fish. One thing though, the fishing area that goes out into the ocean is kinda gross. (Fish all over the ground, etc) But, out friends got to see some fish in... More

We came primarily to visit this park, and decided to camp across the inlet since the weather was so great. When the tide is out, the water is so shallow that you can walk nearly the entire cove. We were lucky enough to see manatees enter, swim around, then leave again... There are quite a few picnic tables, and some... More

We didn't stay long this time, but a lovely place to walk around, make sure to save your receipt and visit the Fishing Museum. We ate at the snack shop the last time we were here, very good food.
