We had a hard time finding the beach areas. Once we did, it was beautiful . It is a nice place for a day with the family.

We visited the Apollo Beach area which is quite a drive if you're not staying in the New Smyrna Beach vicinity. It's such a nice change to get away from all the development to a bit of Florida as it used to be. Unfortunately we...More

If you have a senior parks pass it is free as Canaveral national seashore is part of the national parks system plus a guest in car gets in free..The lifetime pass went from 10.00 to 80.00 if you ate 62 or older..

Each lot has its own parking and it’s own beauty on the beach. I think the nude beach is the last one possibly number 13 but in any case choose any one there is room and enjoy this tranquil gorgeous area of Florida.
