Nature lovers take note that this spot is a grand place to sight all kinds of water birds, amphibians, wild pigs,manatees, and yes, alligators. Easily accessible by car with a driving trail that takes you past plenty of areas to sight the wildlife. Plenty of hiking areas with the park, some short, some longer. No fees associated with entering this... More

I love Canaveral National Seashore and Playlinda Beach. Being a native of Titusville, that was the closest beach for us as children and now as an adult I still enjoy visiting this beach. I have also visited the visitor's center in New Smyrna Beach and they have many educational programs and some great volunteers!

You have your choice of beach area with parking access close to the walk over bridge. There is a boat launch just inside the entrance. A visitors center that explains the turtle population and other points of interest. There also a few docks to fish from. You can also bring your bike as the road is 7 miles long. There... More

It's a national park, so you pay to get in, but it's worth it. Nice flat beach, so after you climb stairs and get over the sand dunes, it's easy walking. There were more birds than I expected and I also saw a young hammerhead shark. Not bad shelling either. If you like the beach you will enjoy this one.... More

Today we bought a senior pass to all National Park in the United States at the Canaveral National Seashore Park. There was no warning given to us as we came into the park about nude bathing being allowed. We had gone to many of the trail stops along the way and then finally to the beach area. We were walking...

Very long National Seashore with many areas to park and then walk across the dunes. We have been there at times when we were the only people for miles. Other times it can get quite crowded, especially when a major rocket launch is scheduled from Cape Canaveral. If nudity offends you, don't go to the farthest north parking area. There... More

We foolishly wasted 4/5 hours at Kennedy Space Center (aka Amusement Park) so we didn't have a lot of time to enjoy the park/beach! We only had enough time to drive to the Apollo Visitor Center, get my Passport stamped, and spend an hour on the beach....but it was totally worth it! Can't wait to go back and see Turtle... More
