Canaveral National Seashore is a sanctuary for wildlife and humans. It is home to many endangered species, including sea turtles who come to the beach to lay their eggs. Like many ocean side cities, the area is ideal for visitors who enjoy outdoor activities. They offer horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking, surfing, swimming, fishing, and boating. If you enjoy hiking, there is a trail near the Visitor’s Center.

The beach is a perfect place to get away from the busy city of Orlando. Canaveral National Seashore is a natural beach, so there are no hotels or vendors, and no designated eating areas. There are very few picnic tables available, so be prepared to eat on the beach. Visitors may want to bring bottled water and a packed lunch with them. Camping is permitted at Klondike Beach but requires a permit. For camping information and reservations visit: www.recreation.gov or call 1-877-444-6777.
Be forewarned, past the last parking lots on each end are nude beaches. Nudity is legal, and police do patrol the area. The National Park Service and nudists made an agreement stating all suits must stay on until they are 150 yards (137 meters) from the last parking area.
