As the closet beaches to Disney, Universal, and all the fun of Orlando, the Space Coast’s pristine beaches get a lot of visitors year round. It makes perfect sense, after all, who doesn’t enjoy a few days (or more!) at the beach with family and friends? On the Space Coast, residents and visitors, alike, offer 72 miles of beautiful beaches for your enjoyment. Each beach is unique, so let’s take a few minutes and explore your options, so you can find the perfect beach for you, your family and friends.
Canaveral National Seashore
If quiet, peaceful seclusion, and pristine undeveloped beaches are your ideal, you need to head to Canaveral National Seashore. Located between New Smyrna Beach and Titusville, the unspoiled beauty of the dunes and surf offers the perfect escape. Canaveral National Seashore is overflowing with 25 miles of natural beaches, dunes, marshes, and lagoon habitats that promise sightings of more than 300 bird species and 1,000 native plants. With more than 57,000 acres, you are sure to find blissful beach fun from surfing to swimming, boating to fishing, canoeing the lagoons to hiking the nature trails.
Canova Beach Park
If your beach trip would be incomplete with your favorite four-legged pup, then Canova Beach Park is the beach for you! This delightful dog-friendly beachfront park offers wheelchair access, grills, a pavilion and picnic shelter, plus benches, restrooms, water fountain, and showers. As the only beach on the Space Coast that welcomes dogs, remember to follow the rules for everyone’s enjoyment – dogs on leashes, with tags verifying license and vaccination, and always clean up after your pet!
Jetty Park at Port Canaveral
This beautiful beach promises unique sightings of majestic cruise ships and massive cargo vessels while you enjoy swimming, sunning, and fishing along the 14 miles of beach. The beach at Jetty Park features natural dunes, home to birds, sea turtles, and other coastal life, as well as bike paths, a playground, rental cabins, and more. On top of that anglers of all skill levels will enjoy the handicap-accessible 24 hour fishing pier at Jetty Park.
Sebastian Inlet State Recreation Area
Looking for more than swimming and sunning from your beach adventure? The Sebastian Inlet State Recreation Area is the beach for you! Sebastian Inlet is among the best surfing breaks on the East Coast, as well as fabulous recreational areas for families to enjoy. Plus, anglers consider the area to offer up exceptional saltwater fishing. If fishing and surfing aren’t your thing, you can enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling, and camping as well! Want to bring your boat along? No problem, there is a marina, run by the park service, waiting for your arrival. You’ll also find the McLarty Museum, the Sebastian Inlet Fishing Museum, and a bait and tackle shop onsite.
Cool, Classic Beach Vibes
If the ultimate beach for you is the timeless family beach, look no further than the Melbourne, Cocoa, and Satellite’s beaches. All offer family friendly access, plus playgrounds, beach volleyball, covered pavilions, picnic areas, public restrooms and showers. Plus, each beach promises unique beach shopping venues within easy reach. And if that isn’t enough, delightful fare is to be had on and off the beach among the many eateries within easy walking distance.
