Nice calm area to swim with the family

Our family does many family days with friends during the year. We love swimming in the inlet with the kids. There is a place to fish also!

Love going here to enjoy a lazy day of fun and fishing, or just relaxing. If you are a camper you will really love their sights.

Even the locals love coming here. Lovely pier, great chances to see wild life. The beach is also lovely, the waves are sometimes a bit much for very young children. It is a smaller beach, just really lovely. Nearby across A1A is a cove that children LOVE to wade and swim in.

Sebastian Inlet park is a great place for picnicking or enjoying the beach. They now have a snack bar if you didn't bring your own picnic food. It's fun to walk out on the fishing pier. Sometimes you see dolphins swimming. Views from the pier are beautiful. This year we also visited the fishing museum on the south side of... More

A very beautiful park. Lots of great water views and boating areas, as well as green space and walking trails. Plenty of parking, and a little less traveled than some of the other ocean front parks.

This is one of my go to spots when out of town guests are visiting. The park allows kayaking and has a long pier for viewing the inlet and marine life.

The walking trails were OK, but nothing exceptional. We found other walking trails that were longer and had a larger variety of natural areas. It was a free walk, and that's always nice. If we go back, I suspect we will rent kayaks and give that a try.
