Seems the bane of high tides, bugs and rude people eluded us on out first trip here. The fact that parking area 5 leads to a clothing optional beach isn't well sign posted and parking is very limited, however, we lucked out and had a car leave within minutes if arriving. The beach itself is clean and pristine. The people... More

Had a GREAT day at Apollo Beach. CLOTHING OPTIONAL - totally legal. Clear, clean ocean water. Very quiet and peaceful. The middle of nowhere. Only CONS - very little parking and no "running water" in the bathrooms. I will return.

Nice beach area. The only negative, and there is nothing to be done about it, was that the no-see-ums were horrible in the early morning, so you had to wait until mid-morning to go.

Had a great tanning experience here...lol Not sure if clothing optional or what here, saw both. No drive beach. It is the end of Seashore National Park.

Shells galore! Peace and quiet, nature at its finest. Enjoyed my day on this beautiful peace of Florida coastline. Wish there were at least foot showers, that is my only complaint.

Spent a wonderful day on this uncrowded beach, plenty of shells to pick and perfect water! Part of the Canaveral National Sea Shore.

I must correct those who state that this is a 'nude beach'. Apollo IS NOT a nude beach, but you will find a clothing optional area south of parking lot #5 (the last parking area). There are plenty of family friendly areas along this six mile stretch so if you do not want to risk seeing folks relaxing in the... More

This beach lived up to the hype! Clean sand, clear blue water, massive amount of wild life! This place is excellent. We saw turtles, a fox, even deer! Not on the beach but getting there. It was a great drive.

I visited on June 24th and 25th 2014, arriving almost as soon as they opened the gates at 6am on the 24th, and around 10am on the 25th. There is a $5 fee per car/motorcycle, and a $3 per person fee if you walk in, bike in, rollerskate through the gate. On the first day, I was seriously assaulted by... More
