On a four hour trip I saw manatees, tortoise, a variety of fish being caught, a beautiful clean beach, Jet skis jumping waves 10 feet into the air, meet knowledgeable... More

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!

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
