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.

Head down to lot number 5 to complete your get away from the crowds. As with the other designated parking areas, you will have a large deck/sitting area to look out and enjoy the ocean view. The beach is un-groomed and full of all types of shells both whole and crushed which makes up its unique blend of sand. And... More

This is one of the two beaches in Florida with a legal nude beach. The beach is clothing optional at parking area # 5. The only place to get a good tan without tan lines. If you want a place to be nude to swim and sun bath this is it.
