Fun Things to Do at Sebastian Inlet State Park
By Gary McKechnie
Sebastian Inlet State Park is a prime destination for surfers, but there are many other reasons why visitors come to this place.
Come here and you’ll find not only those surfers, but also anglers, sunbathers, picnickers, campers, and boaters – each and every one of them fully immersed in the natural beauty of Florida.
Visit the park’s website and you’ll see that Sebastian Inlet offers even more -- bicycling, canoeing, kayaking, birding, shelling, stargazing, weddings, snorkeling, scuba diving, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, and three miles of beaches.
In addition to the jetty (where you’ll see the surfers and anglers), there’s a combination restaurant/gift shop.
If you head to the far south end of this 1,000-acre park you’ll find the McLarty Treasure Museum where you’ll learn the story of a 1715 Spanish shipwreck, a survivors’ camp, and the ongoing search for lost treasure.
If you’re near Cocoa Beach, Melbourne, or Vero Beach, you’re also near one of Florida’s premier parks.
