I went there on a Saturday, had no trouble finding a parking space in lot 5. Was a little nervous at first, the beach is beautiful, people are friendly but respect your privacy. I enjoyed my visit and will return.

Beautiful long beaches, a little littered with debris washed up on shore, but still a beautiful place to enjoy the sun and sand. Close to Daytona Beach.

Beautiful drive, checked out all the beaches. #5 has the least amount of parking, #4 has a few more and #3 having even more. We parked at #4, on a Sunday afternoon, beach was lovely. Definitely would go back.

We spent one of our mornings at Apollo Beach and it was beautiful here. Took in a lot of the scenery and toured Eldora State House too.

The great thing about these beaches is that there is only so many parking spots so the beach is never crowded. That being said, you have to get there early on the weekend, or you will have to wait for a parking space.

Always love to come back to this long beach to enjoy walking between the lots. There are 5 of them and we try to take in two lots by walking from 1 to 2 for instance and back again. Maybe just about 5 miles but...More

It fills up. Thst late in the day you will be waiting for folks to leave. You can always park at 4 and do a long beach walk for privacy.
