  • My family and I love this park and beach. It has beaches on the ocean and inlet sides. In parts of the inlet side, you can swim across a small channel to a beach on an island where hermit crabs and other sea life roam. There are also several pavilions and grills fir cookouts. Our family has made many fun memories at this park.
  • Nice state park. Much easier to get out into the ocean than at Sebastian Inlet... seems to be deeper with fewer things on the bottom to create the rolling waves you find at Sebastian Inlet State Park. Caught some big Jack's across from the Coast Guard station on Sunday
