We always enjoy a drive out to the coast and through the nature trail. You will see many different birds, alligators, and much more wildlife. There are plenty of opportunities to pull over and take pictures or ID wildlife with children. Fishing on the beach can be spectacular at times as well. Please be mindful of swimmers and swimmers be... More

While staying in Orlando for a typical Disney adventure, my mom and I were looking for a beach we could spend the day at that wouldn't be crowded with spring breakers. After doing a little tripadvisor research, we took a drive out to Titusville. On our way into the park, we saw a couple alligators and other wildlife. We were... More

Off the beaten path, with lots of beach for everyone. There must have been a hundred metres between families and if you are so inclined we discovered a nude beach at the very end, so we decided to join the other naturalists and walk the beach as mother nature intended....make sure you bring extra sun screen and a picnic basket.

The beach is awesome. The bathroom facilities could use some upgrading. Hopefully you won't need to shower when you are done at the beach because we didn't find any.

This park was a nice surprise. You pay $5.00 to get in. First stop is Turtle Mound which is basically the garbage pile of past native peoples consisting mainly of oyster shells. They ate so many there is an actual mound. There is a boardwalk to take you to the top. We then went to see the film at the... More

I went there a sunday afternoon. There was not a lot of people there, it was easy to find a calm spot away from people. The place is really amazing.

Beautiful beaches, undeveloped, and clean. A small visitor center has some neat exhibits, a film and great store. They do night turtle watch programs in the summer, but it didn't have time to stay for one. I hear they are very popular. Kayak opportunities in the park, too. Wish I had a few days to stay.

I hate to recommend this national park publically, because we love having this place practically to ourselves! The Canaveral National Seashore is part of the National Park Service – so a park fee is required for entry and access hours can be limited (if you are a senior, ask for the senior pass that will get you – and sometimes...
