Bugs can Bite!
Sebastian Inlet State Park is home to many wonderful creatures. It's also home to sand gnats, or "no-see-ums," as well as mosquitoes and other biting insects. Most of the time they are not a bother, but please come prepared for the times when the insects might be at their worst. This can be in the warmer months of the year when conditions are calm, especially at dawn and dusk.
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 bio-diverse estuaries in the world, the Indian River Lagoon.
Stretching over three miles of barrier island, the park spans one thousand 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 within: the McLarty Treasure Museum, and the Sebastian Fishing Museum. Both are open daily from 10 am to 4 pm, excepting major holidays, and highlight fascinating stories of local history.
Sebastian Inlet State Park is a 24-hour operation park that offers many activities to those who love to recreate outdoors. Whether it be star gazing or beachcombing, surfing or fishing, Sebastian Inlet State Park has something for everyone.
