great beach!

One of our favorite places to bird watch. Usually able to find a parking spot pretty quick and the beach here is always clean!

This is on Canaveral National park area, is historic in its own. Must see the huge pile of Oyster shells from early humans liveing here.

I have been going to Canaveral National Seashore for about 25 years, both Playalinda and Apollo depending on where I resided. I now live in New Smyrna Beach and at Apollo 3 to 4 days per week walking for exercise. If you have questions about the beaches, just send me a message on Tripadvisor. I just read Sheila P. review...

I have been coming to Apollo Beach for over 20 years both as a tourist and now a Florida native. Normally this beach is a clean, natural wildlife beach where one can enjoy sunbathing nude or not. Most folks frequenting this beach adhere to good beach ethics. most everyone who goes nude would never act inappropriately or make others who... More

Hurricane Matthew has rewritten this beach in as much as it is now flatter and wider where the nearest dunes used to be. It has also unfortunately piled up plastic bottles, driftwood and other debris from the incoming tides and left it high and dry - at least if was like that when I visited. If I stayed in the...

Not many tourists travel on A1A South of New Smyrna Beach, and that's what makes this park attractive, because you discover nature, history and culture everywhere in that area.

Wonderful naturist destination. Devoid of commercial taint. Went November '16 after hurricane Matthew. Much erosion evident. Don't know if it's related to the time of year or the storms but a lot of debris washed up on the shore, human-based and natural. Saw similar in Daytona Beach though. It was disheartening to see the amount of human garbage mixed among... More

Great beach with very few other bathers. Be sure to stop at the ranger station just inside of the main gate. Good Hint - if you are over 65 purchase the lifetime pass. Only costs $10, good at ANY national park/site in the US and all for only $10.

This is worth the trip. Shelling on these beaches is average but so much better than New Smyrna Beach. Very well maintained. Be aware that beach #5 is clothing optional.
