While on a business trip we were cross-crossing Florida and on our way to visit a client on the coast, time just ran out so we stopped in New Smyrna beach for the afternoon and went surfing. Warm water and a great time.

The nude beach came as a surprise to us, as we had not checked this website. We did stop at the visitor information center with our kids in tow. Nobody warned us that beach #5 was nude. The nice employee there encouraged my daugher to seach the farthest beach for seed pods as it was the " least crowded", so... More

Unspoiled Canaveral National Seashore is the perfect place to spend some time without dealing cars & hundreds of people on the beach.

I've got nothing against nudist beaches - hey the more the merrier. Would have been nice though if there were a sign or some notification that it was there. When we drove in and paid $5, we got no info about the park, no brochure, from the guy. No sign at all at the beach stops about clothing optional. Other... More

My visit was around 4:00pm during the week after a rainstorm had passed through, so please keep that in mind as you read the review..... Pros: * Nude beach to yourself (south of lot #5 only) where everybody was very respectful of one another. * No concern of being harassed by law enforcement * Good mixture of ages/sexes, though not...

We just got back from Apollo Beach, part of Canaveral National Seashore. You enter from SR A1A from New Smyrna Beach to the north (this is the only way in or out). The entrance fee is $5.00; an annual pass is $35.00, which includes admission to Playalinda Beach (southern portion of Canaveral - access through Titusville) but not other national... More

This was our first trip to a nude beach (my wife and I) and won't be our last. We are in our mid 20s and didn't really know what to expect, but it was great! The beach is a little narrow and the sands just a bit difficult to walk. Everyone here is very respectful and in about 10 minutes... More

This beach is a nice little quiet beach, not crowded, clean, and safe. We went to the beach just to relax, little did we know, that the Manatee's hang out there! They were so neat to watch. Worth the stop on the road!

We spend a lot of time in the National Seashore beaches. Miles and miles of beach with no commercial development. We just went on pontoon boat ride of Mosquito Lagoon. Great Great Great. Jake the captain very knowledgeable SNF informative. Joyce, the first mate, very very good. You can sign up at Visitor Center.
