Sebastain Inlet State Park
One of Florida's most popular state parks, Sebastain is a mecca for snook fishing and is easily located on Highway A1A about 15 miles south of Melbourne Beach. When you see the big bridge, you are there. Shoreline fishing can be had along the entire inlet shore, The north and south jetties, surf fishing from the beach south of the inlet, (the north side is one of the most popular surfing spots on the east coast of the country so if your game is surf fishing, go to the south side), two catwalks under the bridge, a small dock at the campground, (south side of the inlet) and the lagoon to the west. Other species caught are redfish, snapper, tarpon, seatrout, etc. Great kayaking in the area but be careful of the strong inlet currents. Launch closer to or on the lagoon (west) side. There are also hiking trails, biking trails, good snorkeling, diving, two museums, and a great sand bottom shallow swimming and wading lagoon. A boat ramp can be found on the south side on the lagoon. There are two museums on site. The McLarty Treasure Museum tells the story about the Spanish Treasure Fleet of 1715, that wrecked along the florida southeast coast in that year. The El Capitan was the northernmost shipwreck of that fleet and sank on the shallow sandbars within a mile of the south jetty. The museum is on the site of the survivors campground. The Sebastian Fishing Museum tells the history of the area's fishing industry.
