Me and my friend stopped off at Canaveral National Seashore while visiting Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. The beach looked clean and had a very nice view. On the road between the main entrance and the beach we saw some interesting birds and wildlife. It was very nice.

I adore the natural beach with the dunes. I enjoy walking miles of beach without seeing any vehicles except the rangers four wheelers because of the dunes. Very relaxing beach and never too crowded.

We went on all the hiking trails and oceanfront boardwalks. Enjoyed this experience immensely. There is a boat that goes out and views wildlife. If you want to do this, call at least one week ahead to get a reservation; we were too late to take the boat ride. Great way to spend most of a day!!

Worth the drive down the coast to see the views from both sides. Saw about 8 armadillos and a big turtle along the road too. Park, get out and walk over one of the board walks to the beach.

Yesterday I visited The Canaveral National Seashore. My destination was actually the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, but I got lost and ended up at this location near closing time. The seashore was gorgeous and pristine. I had hoped to see a large variety of shore birds, because it was low tide (best time to see shore birds). I saw a... More

Canaveral National Seashore has several sites that are worth visiting but spread out. The headquarters in Titusville only has literature so it is a super quick stop. The visitor center in Merritt isn't labeled as part of the NPS, so don't pass it! The lower beach is great, but you can't get to the northern section and there are no... More

We saw alligators, turtles, spoonbills and lots of other birds along the drive. We visited Eldora, a restored home, and the volunteer tour guide provided an excellent overview of the area and its history.

We visited Canavaral National Seashore on the recommendation of a friend. If you are a senior or disabled you can get park passes at a reduced rate or free. The pass is valid at any national park. Once you have your pass you can enjoy activities and cruises on their pontoon boat for half price. We did a tour of... More

We did not sign up soon enough for the pontoon tour, and so we went on a plant walk on the Castle Windy trail with several very knowledable guides. Outstanding 2 hour talk on all of the native plants, their usage by Native Americans, and history of the area. Their are many trails, and lots of wildlife to see as... More
