Visited the area at the end of New Smyra Beach with friends on a chilly day. Enjoyed our visit to the Eldora house, the Indian mounds and the pristine beaches. Definitely a throwback to old Florida. Seemed like a place that would be enjoyed more by adults, though the beach is nice. Suggest water shoes as sand is a bit... More

My husband and I enjoyed riding through this park on our motorcycles very much. There are lots of nice places to stop throughout to enjoy the beach and a bathroom at every stop. If you are stopping to walk on the trails, make sure you bring bug spray. There is a lot of mosquitoes that love fresh meat. :-) Otherwise,... More

There is no development out at the Seashore as it abuts the Merritt Island national Wildlife Refuge. As you cross the bridge from Titusville you just drive straight, through the toll booth until you reach Playa Linda beach. You can make the left turn there and drive along to other parking areas but each has a boardwalk access to the... More

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.
