Special Notice: Avalon State Park requires an entry fee of $2.00. The pay station is centrally located in the parking lot. Please display the receipt on your vehicle’s dashboard or rearview mirror. If you are an annual pass holder, please display your pass in your window. Thank you for your cooperation.

Welcome to Avalon State Park, a peaceful secluded beach with all of the amenities of a beach park including restrooms, showers, covered pavilions, picnic tables and grills. Avalon State Park is home to one of the busiest sea turtle nesting beaches in Florida and summer is when sea turtle nesting season is in full swing. This summer we have already recorded leatherback, loggerhead and green sea turtle nests in Avalon State Park.

Please do not use stakes to hold up shade tents or umbrellas because they can break sea turtle eggs buried in the sand. We recommend using sand bags or weights. If you are fortunate enough to sight a sea turtle on the beach please remain quiet and observe from a distance. Please act responsibly and remember that you share this pristine beach with the rare and endangered sea turtles.

The waters of Avalon State Park were once used to train the first Navy Underwater Demolition Team during World War II. Many underwater obstacles that were deposited offshore for training purposes still remain there today. Please use caution and swim at your own risk, there are no lifeguards on duty. All divers are required to display a 'Diver-Down' flag.

Come out and enjoy Avalon State Park, "…the Real Florida."
