The park is divided into two sections which, stupidly, I thought were connected via a single road. Heck, I looked at the Northern section map with Route A1A heading south. I looked at the Southern section map and saw its entrance road heading north. So, our day trip planned to enter the park at the north entrance thinking we will... More

There is something about living in northeast Ohio that makes a trip to the National Seashore in late winter or early spring unforgettable. The undeveloped shore is so serene. It feels farther 'away" from it all than it really is. My family has made Canaveral a part of our vacation for almost 15 years and will do so for many... More

I almost don't want to write a fantastic review because we locals like to keep our beach to ourselves...! Good thing that there is enough room for all! You can see alligators, many species of birds (including rosette spoonbills), the NASA property and launch pads, and so much more. The beach is spectacular any time of the year. I recommend... More

Whether you are interested in sunning, swimming, fishing, surfing or the wildlife at the adjoining Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, this beach is worth a visit. As a part of Canaveral National Seashore National Park, there is a minimal charge per car or tegular visitors would prefer am annual pass. Launch pads at Kennedy Space Center are visible from the crossovers,... More

If you like undisturbed ocean dunes (well, except for the boardwalks across them to the beaches), you will like it. Beaches are narrow, folks tend to be few, and solitude is easily found.

One of the few all natural beaches in Florida. Part of the National Parks the fee for entrance is $5.00 per car. Drive to a parking area and cross the dunes for a look at what Florida used to look like. Bathrooms in the parking areas and no stores. On the west side is the Mosquito Lagoon which can be... More

Gorgeous beaches to enjoy and relax! Very peaceful! Any of the various beach spots would be a great place to stop. Fun view of Kennedy Space Center looking south.

It's a nice and relaxing place to stroll, sun bath, play volley ball, jog...etc. The long stretch of beach has a space for every one.

Very sparsely populated but primitive bathrooms at each of the 10 or so parking areas. Not handicap accessible due to stairs over the dunes to access the water. Miles of beach and shells. Park in first lot and walk to the right where there are few people and more shells. Wide open so very windy if the breeze is from... More

The Canaveral National Seashore is really broken up into two areas. The Northern Area is home to the apollo Visitor Center, the Eldora State House, and Turtle Mound. The southern area is home to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge with a wildlife drive and a little stop off called Manatee Watch. We witnessed one Dolphin and one Manatee there. The... More
