A large stretch of completely wild beach - a pretty rare thing in Florida. This place includes more than the beach but I'll discuss them as part of Indian River Lagoon and Merritt island though technically parts of them are part of this - those parts have trails etc on them.
Shorebirds that act in ways they don't get to on the small beaches we usually see them on. Not so many gulls and pelicans though.
It's a wild beach so you might see interesting sea creatures wash up or be encrusted on drifting debris.
Composting toilets. That is all. Also a view of NASA I suppose. So toilets and NASA.
There are multiple numbered beaches. We picked a couple in the middle and they both looked the same. You can get here from the north or south - we came from the south (Merritt Island).
It takes awhile to drive out there. I'd assume you'd spend at least half an hour wandering around but there's limits to how long you can explore a beach.
It's wide stretch of completely wild beach - it's like a wilderness. I believe the only reason it's here along with Merritt island in general is because of it's proximity to Kennedy Space Center in case something blows up. In my mind this place is just the barrier islands off Indian River Lagoon - but looking at a map part of Merritt Island and the ocean facing part of NW Indian River Lagoon is part of this park.
