The beaches through the beach access points, parking lots 1 through 5 are beautiful. There are times when we were the only ones in sight. It's a wonderful feeling. The ocean waves rolling in, the random sea gulls. We did make our way down to...More

We spent quite a while just walking around and learning about things that we never knew! Our son has always loved space, and this is the perfect place for someone who is interested in anything "space" !!!

Gorgeous unspoiled beaches, tons of shells. However clothing is optional and there are no signs. To each us own, but some of us don’t want to see naked old men. A warning should have been in order

What a beautiful.unspoiled beach. I dont get many opportunities to visit quiet beaches. Glad i took the short ride here. Miles of clean sand with practically no one in sight. Loved it!

I just love the Canaveral National Seashore, and Apollo Beach is also quite nice. Must be at least open minded when you come here, and not really kid friendly due to nudity.

Love this beach! Definitely on my to do again list. Small shell sand instead of the fine sand. When it dries it's easier to get off than the fine sand. Beautiful shells and less people. Nice parking areas with bathrooms. Boardwalks to the beach.

South,Past parking area 5 is clothing-optional. I know, I'm a Nudist. Also, Playalinda parking area 13 is clothing-optional. I've heard there had been signs some time ago, but were removed. So, if you're not a naturist/nudist. Their will be nude bodies on the beach. My...More

When I am in NSB I love to drive just 10 minutes south to Apollo Beach. This end of Canaveral National Seashore is easy to get to and well maintained. There are several parking areas with basic bathrooms. Each area has a boardwalk to get...More

In November you should have no issue parking a car, but as you move down to the South end of the park, it gets tougher to park larger vehicles. It is a dice roll on the weather. Average high air temps are upper 70's, but it... More

It's about 150 miles all the way to Apollo Beach which is at the end of the island.
