Apollo Beach is located at the northern end of Canaveral National Seashore and is managed by the National Park Service.  Access to the park is via A1A through New Smryna Beach.  Operating hours are seasonal generally from 6am - 6pm during the Winter season and until 8pm during the rest of the year.  Admission fee is $5 per car/motorcycle, and the per-person fee is $3.00 per day for bicycles, pedestrians, or occupants of large non-commercial vehicles.  Annual passes are also available for $35.  In addition to the undeveloped beach with its 5 access points, there is a Visitors Center, and numerous other sites along the route through the park.  Parking is limited and quickly fills up, especially on summer weekends. There are also boat ramps located just beside Lot#1A, Lot#3, and Lot#5, with parking available for vehicles with a boat trailer.

Be aware that clothing optional beach use is permitted south of the last parking area, Lot #5. Lot#5 is closed during the same Shuttle launch / landing times in which Playalinda Beach (located on the southern end of Canaveral National Seashore) is closed.  Recorded beach closure information related to activity at Kennedy Space Center, construction and other activities can be obtained by calling (321) 867-4077
