While staying in Orlando for a typical Disney adventure, my mom and I were looking for a beach we could spend the day at that wouldn't be crowded with spring breakers. After doing a little tripadvisor research, we took a drive out to Titusville. On our way into the park, we saw a couple alligators and other wildlife. We were trying to get to the beach, but turned left instead of right, and ended up at a manatee viewing deck, where 6 manatees were feeding/resting/doing manatee things. Watching them in their natural habitat was surreal, especially after being bombarded with images of Sea World and other captive-animal experiences.

After watching them for awhile, we headed towards the beach, which was absolutely magical. There were only a few other people on the entire beach, and the the entire shore was littered with millions of perfect little seashells. We walked up and down the beach, and only came across one other family.

After the beach, we stopped by the visitor's center, where we bough our park pass for $7, and walked around looking at some nature exhibits. Make sure you stop here first and grab some brochures, because there is a long drive you can take through the park and look at birds, ducks, and swans at different stops along the way.

We were so glad we ventured out here on our last day, as Disney and Universal could not compare to the beautiful park with manatees, birds, and perfect empty shores.

Off the beaten path, with lots of beach for everyone. There must have been a hundred metres between families and if you are so inclined we discovered a nude beach at the very end, so we decided to join the other naturalists and walk the beach as mother nature intended....make sure you bring extra sun screen and a picnic basket.

The beach is awesome. The bathroom facilities could use some upgrading. Hopefully you won't need to shower when you are done at the beach because we didn't find any.

I went there a sunday afternoon.
There was not a lot of people there, it was easy to find a calm spot away from people.
The place is really amazing.
