Canaveral National Seashore

Just south of New Smyrna Beach is the Canaveral National Seashore, a 57,000-acre national park nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River. The Canaveral National Seashore is one of the longest stretches of pristine coastline in the United States. Since ancient times, this barrier island has provided sanctuary to both people and wildlife. Many threatened and endangered species find refuge here, including sea turtles who nest on its shores. For a truly relaxing experience, the undeveloped Playalinda Beach was rated "Quietest Beach" by TripAdvisor in 2013 and one of USA Today's Top Ten Florida Beaches in 2015.
