Was here in town for a wedding and decided to stop on in here and explore. There is a charge to enter the park. Park near the general store/restaurant and then explore the area. You can go out on the pier or hang out in the inlet area and enjoy the beach (no waves, it's an inlet). They have paddleboards... More

I found this place originally with my Dad when we were just driving around one day. It kind of hidden in a quiet spot south of Melbourne Beach down the coast. It's a great place with a nice beach and good waves! There is a jetty/ pier to fish at and also a small area to fish over the inlet... More

A regular place for myself and my family. Great for swimming, seeing wildlife, and picnicking. Park is clean and safe and a popular place for locals. If you are visiting it is a must see to take in the local landscape.

We heard about this place from our neighbor so decided to check it out. My kids are young, 3 and 5, and they had a blast! They have a little spot that gets no waves and is very calm. My kids were swimming all over without fear of being knocked down by the huge waves the Ocean gets. We have... More

My wife and I visited Sebastian Inlet State Park over Memorial Day weekend. There was plenty of room which is the way we like it! No over crowding here! The ocean and beach were beautiful! The biggest downside was the huge amount of litter present. Otherwise, this is a lovely beach!

Our family and friends were at The park to honor the life of a very dear loved soldier. The park rangers and the park itself were superb.

I come here every year, at least once. I love the area. The fishing is some of the best in Florida. I always catch fish here, either in the river or the inlet. They always seem to be biting. The beach and ocean are beautiful.
