The longest expanse of undeveloped land along the East Coast of Florida. As a federally protected area, Canaveral National Seashore will always remain primarily as it is today.. Thank God! For just $5 per vehicle, there is so much here to see and do. Turtle Mound, Windy Castle trail, and some of the most spectacular beaches in all of Florida.... More

13 parking lots. Lifeguards at the lower numbers with plenty of parking. White sand. $5 or one of the passes. We used our senior National Pass. Get more information at visitor center on Merritt Island, National Wildlife Refuge. Same island as Kennedy Space Center and cape Canaveral Air Station where rockets are launched.

Better get gas and food before heading to this beach. Absolutely zero commercial properties here. There are many entrances with pull offs to park, only a couple have lifeguards if you need them so look for signs. Once you park, typically there are steps built over the dunes to get to the beach. Unspoiled and clean beach. We usually go... More

This place is off the beaten path but such a great find! While driving in the refugee we saw a Bobcat, wild pigs, birds & a Manatee family. Unfortunately, while there a huge rainstorm came and we couldnt see 2 feet in front of us which dampened the visit, since we couldnt see the rest of the reserve. It's 140,000... More

My family has young children and teens and Canaveral National Seashore has wildlife, trails, and a beautiful beach line. We love to pack a lunch and spend the day exploring and enjoying the water. You will not find surf shops but sea turtle nest. If you want jet ski rentals, you are not at the right beach, those don't exist... More

My activities are walking, looking for shells and fishing. I also volunteer for Canaveral National Seashore to help preserve the sea turtles so I have seen areas of the beach that most people don't see. The turtle watch program is very interesting and children, as well as adults, really like to see the big sea turtles lay their eggs. Reservations... More

Cape Canaveral Seashore National park provides some of the most beautiful in the continental U.S. Miles of wide open beaches without crowds. Great for those that desire the unpolished environmental friendly atmosphere. The ride it through natural Florida habitat is beautiful. The only drawback is availability of facilities. There are clean, well maintained restrooms at each of the parking locations... More

This place is really neat. It does have a scattering of antenna domes and buildings, I guess to support the Cape, but if you look past those, you've got a 2 lane road linking you to a number of beach sites on the eastern part of the island, each with a somewhat primitave bathroom (AKA pit toilet), no running water...

An awesome beautiful beach!! This is very remote and pristine area that is worth the experience. Do be aware that this is a natural area. Also, plan accordingly as there is no food or snacks available. I did have a raccoon block me from a walkway - he would not move!!! Be aware of animals and the occasional moon coming... More
