The first thing we did on our visit was take the wildlife drive. It is basically an off the beaten path dirt road that takes you into the marsh and pine lands where you can see wildlife and vegetation all from the safety of your vehicle. You don't have to have a big truck to get through it, my little... More

The "South" Seashore (as found East of Titusville) is incredible. Primitive but warning, no lifeguards and you may encounter rip tides and a few "deep holes" as you proceed into ocean water. Beach area sand is considerably more coarse then others. Shells galore. Parking is easily found (except for Lot 13 which is the nude beach they don't have). Bring... More

A great beach if you like to get away from all the beach houses and condos. A beach in its own natural setting

Playlinda Beach/Canaveral National Seashore is fabulous. We recently visited Orlando for a graduation, and after going to Cocoa Beach and being completely disappointed, turned our attention to Trip Advisor and I stumbled onto the Canaveral National Seashore. It is wonderful. We were told there are nudists – something we’re NOT -- but the Park Ranger said they stay around parking... More

It's hard not to give a excellent rating to such a well preserved and presented park but misinformation about part of the experience brought this rating down. When I arrived at the Eldora Museum, the signs on display at the door read "open Saturday & Sunday 12PM-4PM" and "turn knob and push" which I did but noticed the deadbolt was... More

Great day trip. The seashore is completely natural. No shops, just beach at its finest. Clean with very few people. There were a lot of turtle nests marked. I would love to see them hatch some day. Turtle Mound and Mosquito Lagoon are both within the CNS. If you are on a family outting, it would probably be best to... More

Great clean beaches, you can view the wildlife, foliage, watch the birds. The excellence part of this park is "Turtles". Nesting turtles in season, are Loggerheads, green turtles; and leatherbacks. The experience is excellent. Cost $

Black point wildlife drive is a wonderful , beautiful way to see the great outdoors /and it's wild life. We saw birds of all kinds, and alligators. On the way to Haulover canal, where we saw wild manatees, we saw a feral hog. On the way to the National Seashore we encountered a terrapin and even ended up with a... More

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
