Canaveral National Seashore and its 24 miles of undisturbed beach is the longest such stretch on the east coast of Florida. The northern portion known as Apollo Beach, can easily be reached from nearby New Smyrna Beach via A1A south.
Don’t miss the Apollo District Visitor Center, Eldora State House (est. 1913) and the view atop Turtle Mound, an ancient Native American midden once used as a navigation aid for ocean going vessels.
Monthly events at Apollo Beach may include plant walks, canoe trips, habitat exploration, Timucuan crafts, fishing and beach clean ups. Horseback riding is allowed on certain sections of the beach, except during sea turtle nesting season, with special permitting arranged in advance.
Visitors enjoy shelling along Canaveral National Seashore’s unspoiled shoreline, snorkeling, canoeing, fishing in the lagoon, birding and experiencing one of America’s great national treasures.
Please call Apollo District Visitor Center at (386) 428-3384 for hours, entrance fees, equestrian permits, canoe reservations and monthly programs.
