The Ranger’s cell phone rang at 10:30PM. “Our girl is giving eggs - caravan down to lot 3 - walk south ¼ mile on beach” Two ‘turtle tracker’ ladies had found a specimen appropriate for viewing. A Loggerhead. Under dark starry skies of a new moon with a comforting warm breeze, we marveled at the majesty of Mother Nature as... More

Lot #5 is up and running.. And packed! You can only park in designated spaces and once they are full, you're just out of luck. My point is to come early if you want the "clothing optional" option. Nothing beats commando body surfing! The beach is beautiful and pristine. The turquoise water is the perfect temperature, just cool enough to... More

I went here because I heard they hadA nude beach and I just wanted to try it out you have to go to the last lot which is area five and then get out of the car and walk south. When I got there it was closed because of maintenance so I was a little disappointed I didn't get to... More

Whenever I come to New Smyrna Beach, I always make it a point to visit Apollo Beach at Parking Lot #5. Lot #5 is closed for repairs right now until further notice but I used Lot #4 and had a very private area not too far from the boardwalk with virtually no one around within a quarter mile. Nice &...

Went on a Tuesday. Not much parking and not much beach at high tide. The day was rather gloomy so perhaps we didn't see it at it's best. Supposedly, the park is closed to visitors if there is a shuttle launch at Cape Canaveral.

Yes, just found out today that Parking lot #5 (last parking lot) is closed with a barricade. I arrived at that barricade at 11:15 AM and on the way down noticed that all the parking spots were filled in lots 2,3,4 with people waiting. I finally found the information on a site that states this: "Construction is also set to... More

this is a beautiful unspoiled beach. Limited parking areas effectively limits the number of people on the beach. If you are willing to walk a little you will be by yourself on the beach. Great area for walking there are tons of shells to find.This is what Florida looked like before people. There are areas to launch boats and kayak... More

We drove to Apollo Beach to watch a Rocket Launch.. It was beautiful day, a little windy and then ocean fog came over, blocked our view of the rocket, but we did see the contrail and heard the loud boom... Excellent beach.. There are 5 parking lots and space is limited. The area closes at 6pm. If there wasn't fog,... More

This is out-of-the way enough that you can almost always find a quiet stretch of beach to have to yourself. No lifeguards. No cars on the beach. There is limited parking so you might need to stop at a different parking lot than you expected. Can be serene. Usually more fishermen than swimmers or sunbathers. May be a little windy.
