“Nice park, lots of birds, beware no-see-'ums if you stay in a tent.”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We enjoyed pitching a tent there (no reservation required, thank you, Florida) swimming and walking around taking pictures of birds. We were warned in advance of the no-see-ums, which can crawl through the netting on your tent. Zipping up the windows of the tent worked fine - the little insects did not fly high enough to go through the netting at the ceiling of the tent (about 5' from the ground).

“Concerts....”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Went to one of their free concerts (you have to pay the park entrance fee though), and it was really beautiful there....it's on the south side of the inlet all the way at the end under a pavilion...the concerts are different every month and the last Sat. Really beautiful setting for a concert....:)

“Little gem that Get's better and better”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I vacate to Melbourne every year to see family and many years ago stumbled upon Sebastian inlet after deciding to take the scenic route back from Vero Beach and have been come back year after year loading the vehicle up with either a surf board/fishing kit or even just a towel to lay on the beach, it really is a great place for all the family and on most (not every) occasions you can watch the dolphins and manatees playing. each time I go I notice they are expanding the cafe, shop and so on which is helpful to have something within easy reach, this place is lovely and quiet and a real little gem on the coastline with only a small parking fee.

“Great state park for kid”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Kids have such a choice of activities here with the ocean on one side and a protected lagoon on the other...snorkeling, fishing,swimming and sometimes even with the manatees. We have done it on several occasions. Both barbecues and restaurant is on premises.
