2021 Roadtrip to Sebastian Inlet State Park in Melbourne Beach Florida on March 14th

My visit

Sadie and I's EPIC Roadtrip 2021 has now landed us in Palm Bay for a week. This is the longest stretch we will spend in one location. Sebastian Inlet State Park is just down the road from Palm Bay, so we chose to explore this first. This is an interesting Florida State Park. If you like sunbathing, swimming, fishing, or surfing, this park is for you! Sadie and I strolled down the boardwalk. I wasn't paying attention and almost had a giant wave take out my camera. I was panicking for a bit! Scroll down to see the pics from our visit!

General Info

(from https://www.floridastateparks.org/Sebastian-Inlet)

Sebastian Inlet State Park lies within a beautiful stretch of barrier island along central Florida’s east coast where land meets sea. Sebastian Inlet is a manmade cut through the barrier island. This main feature of the park connects the Atlantic Ocean with one of the most biodiverse estuaries in the world, the Indian River Lagoon. Stretching over three miles of barrier island, the park spans 1,000 acres. Shoreline and water abound to make for great surfing, swimming, snorkeling and beachcombing. Impressive catches come from the two jetties that extend into the ocean. Boat launch facilities provide access to nearby inshore and offshore fishing and diving and are located on the south side of the park and the park marina. Fifty-one campsites with water, electricity, fire ring and picnic tables are adjacent to the inlet. Interpretive programs are offered regularly. The park hosts two museums, the McLarty Treasure Museum and the Sebastian Fishing Museum, that highlight fascinating stories of local history.

Surfers from around the globe flock to Sebastian Inlet State Park to ride “First Peak” and “Monster Hole,” but this pristine park is more than a Florida surfer’s paradise. Visitors stroll untouched beaches, collecting shells and observing sea turtle nests, or try their luck fishing from one of the jetties that slice into the Atlantic. Calmer waters on the Indian River Lagoon beckon kayakers to explore wild beauty.
