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

This is a nude beach and I want wholeheartedly thank the park service for making this beach possible. Relaxing on a beach in the nude is something everyone should try at least once in their life. If this is not for you, the east coast has miles of non-nude beaches with much nicer amenities than Apollo to choose from. Here... More

I had visited Apollo Beach late one afternoon about a year ago and was eaten up by bugs. I decided to give it another try. After my last experience, I made sure to go in the early afternoon on a nice Sunny day and checked the tide to make sure it was not high tide. My experience this time was... More

To start with, yes this is the area with the clothing optional section. This starts about 20yds or less south from the ramp to the beach, and most people on it will be nude. Everyone I meet was most pleasant and only cared if they were going to be in your picture. Heck most offered to take a picture of... More

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.
