Explore the Canaveral National Seashore!

Situated on a barrier island along Florida's east coast, inviting park highlights include pristine, undeveloped beach, dunes and lagoon offering sanctuary to an abundant blend of plants and animals. Year-round recreation includes fishing, boating, canoeing, surfing, sunbathing, swimming, hiking, camping, nature and historical trails.

Things to Do

Beaches. The seashore has undeveloped beaches and limited services. There are no designated picnic areas, phones, food, or drinking water. Lifeguards are on duty from May 30 to September 1st at both Playalinda and Apollo. 

These beaches have restrooms and boardwalk access. Beach access points for visitors with disabilities are at Playalinda Beach: Eddy Creek and Parking Area No. 8; and at Apollo Beach: Areas No. 1 and No. 5. First aid and drinking water are at information centers. 

Surfing is permitted in the park. You may reach Klondike Beach only by foot (a back country permit is required). Seashore areas may be closed if parking lots are filled or during shuttle launches at the Kennedy Space Center. For recorded information on launch closures at Playalinda Beach, call 321-867-0677.

Scenic Drive The six-mile self-guided Black Point Wildlife Drive in the refuge meanders through pine flatwoods and impounded marsh and provides excellent views of many species of wildlife.

Camping Limited backcountry camping is permitted on designated islands all year, by permit only. Camping is not allowed in the refuge. Private campgrounds are available in nearby communities.

Hiking The seashore and refuge offer short self-guided trails. Castle Windy and Turtle Mound trails have shell middens left by Timucuan Indians. Turtle Mound Trail boasts a view of the ocean and Mosquito Lagoon. Eldora Hammock, Oak Hammock, and Palm Hammock trails wind through densely vegetated hammocks. Cruickshank Trail has an observation tower and marsh views.

Hunting Seasonal hunting of migratory water fowl is allowed in the seashore and refuge and is part of the refuge�s waterfowl management. Display or use of firearms, other than for authorized hunting activities, is prohibited.

Boating Launch sites in the refuge and seashore provide access to Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River. Airboats are prohibited.

Freshwater, saltwater, and commercial fishing are subject to size and possession limits and may require a license or special use permit; inquire at information centers.
