At Canaveral National Seashore you can spend time on one of America's longest beaches. The 38 km (24 mi) long beach sits on a barrier island that acts as a natural sanctuary for many animal and plant species. Sea turtles regularly nest here, and delicate plant systems thrive on the beach's sand dunes. You can swim or fish in the ocean, take a walk by the sea, collect shells, and see hundreds of different birds that live on the island. Backcountry camping is allowed in a section of the park; you can make reservations to reserve a spot to camp. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Titusville holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Canaveral National Seashore and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Parking spaces fill up very quickly on the weekends so get there early. Weekdays are the best times to go. Good area to collect nicer, bigger shells. Family friendly but watch for ramp 5 area. It's mostly nude sunbathing. 😉 Us locals/regular snowbirds know all about ramp 5 but some tourists do not. The park finally put up warning signs just before ramp 4. The historic house, trails and fishing areas are beautiful.
Favorite go to spot! Best seashell hunting beaches. If you're local get the annual pass. PARENTS: Don't go to parking spot #5 (furthest parking lot south from NSB entrance) and then walk south on the beach unless you want them to get an eye full of over weight naked people sunning themselves...PROUDLY.
