Really beautiful and remote location. It's clothing-optional past a certain point, and it's getting more popular with that crowd. So, don't go if the sight of naked old people bothers you, because you will see some of that. Still, a beautiful spot for those in the right mindset.

Glad to see it hasn't changed much since I first started going 28+ years ago. I grew up about an hour's drive away and discovered Apollo when I was about 20. I've been there on the 4th of July & Memorial Day holidays, and have seen nudists at every parking area. The parking areas are spread out so far from... More

Pro's and Cons Con: You must get up early to get a parking spot for lot #5. Pro-If you get a parking spot, the beach is clean, beautiful and clothing optional. I feel like this is my little piece of Paradise and freedom.

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.
