We visited this beach on an admission free day! The beach is beautiful and more importantly in a natural setting. Wish I'd of had time to hang out all day and take in more of the wildlife. I loved the fact they staked where the sea turtle eggs were located.

Miles of nearly empty beach, in the middle of summer. We love the relaxing beach and ocean. It is well worth the drive. We got the $35 yearly pass.

Laid back place to enjoy the natural beach scene. Can be seen and enjoyed in all types of weather. Both for fisherman, families and visitors.

Worth the long drive down the scenic road and definitely worth the charge if you are staying the whole summer just get the pass its worth it! Clean and always clear water no pollution and so many different piers it's not so crowded you can't enjoy your family time! Pack a cooler with everything you need you don't want to... More

This was a very small and clean park. All staff was very friendly. I saw a manatee near the visitor place where kayaks can be rented. So many boats seemed to be launched there as well. Go to the visitor's center to see a depiction of the TURTLE MOUND before you actually walk up the hill made of oyster shells.... More

If you want smaller crowds and a generally pristine beach, this is the place to go. But, facilities are limited. There are bathrooms, but nothing else. If you want food, drink, and other amenities, head to Cocoa Beach. Also, from our experience, this is not a place to body board or play much in the surf. Most areas have a... More

Enjoyed seeing pelagic bird species from shore including Gannets and Jaegers. Sea ducks also viewable from with mergansers and loons. This place is a must for birders.

This beach is a pristine display of nature. It is a wonderful secluded beach free of skyscrapers and resorts. We went to this beach several times during our week stay in Titusville. Each time we were here, we saw many sea birds and schools of fish in the waves. Most times we had the entire beach to ourselves.
