No hotels, condos, houses or gas stations just natural beach. Isolation and difficulty accessing limit wackos and crazies.

Our birding group enjoyed distant views of N. Gannets while enjoying a picnic lunch. There is an admission fee for those who do not have a Golden Age or other access card.

Since this is away from the hotels of Cocoa Beach these beaches are generally quite. People can be seen fishing from the shore or surfing when the wind is up. I generally see people just walking the beach. There is a cost of $5 per car entry to the park. This is minute price for such a beautiful place. This... More

We went to this beach for the first time Nov 2014. We were at Disney for a week and our kids have never seen the ocean before so we chose this destination not really knowing how it would be, was about an hour away from Orlando. It is truly amazing and I would go back in a heartbeat!! We saw... More

We first visited this park in September and could not resist coming back again in January. We took the pontoon boat tour out on Mosquito Lagoon with a Park Ranger at the helm and a very knowledgeable volunteer, Joyce Dykes, who pointed out and told us about the many birds including bald eagles, white pelicans and other sea birds plus...

Canaveral Shore cannot be described, heaven on earth, gators on Biolab road, but watch the potholes and people coming the other way, worth it though. Loved it so much, after having a motel nap...going back again this afternoon...

So nice to spend a leisurely afternoon on an uncrowned pristine beach. No commercial development whatsoever as far as one can see. Just mile after mile of unspoiled beach. So relaxing.

Fantastic bird watching with all sorts of water birds, Bald eagles, sea birds and Hawks. The manatee viewing area at Haulover Canal is not to be missed. Just watch for rude careless tourists who keep wandering into closed areas upsetting the wildlife. :(

This is absolutely worth the trip. Saw many birds, icluding a bald eagle, rosette Spoonbills, and white pelicans. The loop drive was worth the $5 honor system admission. This must have been what Florida looked like pre-Disney.
