“relax, fish, and enjoy the ocean”

Sebastian Inlet State Recreation Area
Ranked #2 of 109 things to do in Melbourne
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 21, 2013

This is a peaceful place to watch the strength as the water as the tides go in and out. The waves crash up onto the pier where fisherman seem to be glad to talk about their catches. It was fun to watch the surfers take advantage of the big waves.

We have been to Sebastian Inlet State many times, we stay in the campground. It is a great location, Indian River on one side, ocean on the other. We just love to run away to Sebastian, we can be as busy as we want or a relaxed as we want. We often fish in the river in the morning, the ocean in the afternoon. The state park has access to several fishing piers.

The campground is clean, the bathrooms are kept up and the staff friendly.

There are lots of trails to hike, good bike riding along A1A. So much to do within a 20 mile radius.

We just love Sebastian, it is our runaway place.

This is a nice park with a huge beach area and pier but as usual the powers to be decided to charge more fees to include an $8.00 entry per vehicle for two or more people.

The taxpayers fund this inlet but never is it enough for those who can find ways to make you pay even more. Our children grew up in the area and loved the tide pool. We visited often, spent money at the park for fishing and refreshments.

Since the implementation of entry fees a few years ago and then jacking the price up even more to the current $8.00 we just won't go anymore. There is a nice restaurant on the property.
