Oh yeah, I was naked and lovin' it. Parking lot 5 had the closest access to the naturalist/nudist/the naked people. It isn't marked! Seriously, there is no signage or anything that indicates that the beach goers are without swim suits. The bathroom is basically a smelly permeant nasty port-a-potty. I went every day at different times. People kind of keep... More

This was our first trip to Apollo Beach. We went on Sat (8/13) and Sun (8/14). We arrived at parking lot #5 just before 8am both days and were lucky to get one of the few remaining spots. It is the most natural and remote beach we have ever seen. It felt like we were at the ends of the... More

There are 5 different parking areas but it is all one long beach, thankfully very well kept and litter free although some people leave things at the litter bins that they should really take home with them. My brother in law and I did a lot of walking between the parking areas from 1 to 2 and back and so... More

This is a National Park so there is no development here save a few historic homes left over from the long gone town of Eldora. The beaches are traffic free and offer good shelling and fishing as well as privacy. There are 5 parking areas and they fill up fast. Most everybody stays near the parking areas but if you... More

This beach is addicting.. Beautiful, undeveloped, and all natural! The road in is newly paved and lot #5 is redone to include another 10 parking spaces. However, I arrived at 9am and lot #5 was already full, as was lot #4 (the park opens at 8am). Thank God I'm on a motorcycle.. Ha! I made my own space. If you're... More

The Apollo beach / Turtle Mound area is a completely undeveloped beach. You can go there and look down miles of beach and only see one or two people. It is a steep beach in comparison with the beaches at New Smyrna and Daytona so if you are taking smaller children you should be more attentive as the surf here... More

This afternoon on the 23rd of June 2016 parking lot five reopened at Apollo Beach. The road has also been replaced with asphalt. Beach access now includes a long ramp to accommodate beach visitors who are handicapped.

went with my gf. The first day we tried going we couldn't make it to parking lot #5 like we wanted so we settled on going to parking lot 3 and just to the normal beach thing. parking lot 5 is for clothing optional sunbathing / swimming. The whole area from parking lot 1-5 is beautiful but if you don't... More
