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. Both are open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., excluding major holidays.
Sebastian Inlet State Park is a 24-hour operation park that offers many outdoor activities. Whether it be stargazing or beachcombing, surfing or fishing, Sebastian Inlet State Park has something for everyone.
