The premier saltwater fishing spot on Florida's east coast, this park is a favorite for anglers nationwide for catching snook, redfish, bluefish, and Spanish mackerel from its jetties. Surfing is also a popular recreation and several major competitions are held here every year. It is considered to have the best surfing on the east coast by amateaurs and professionals. Two museums provide a history of the area. The McLarty Treasure Museum features the history of the 1715 Spanish treasure fleet; the Sebastian Fishing Museum tells the history of the area's fishing industry. The park offers the beach worshiper three miles of beautiful beaches that provide opportunities for swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, shelling, sunbathing or just strolling along contemplating the serene beauty while sensing the balmy breezes of the majestic sea. Canoeing and kayaking in the Indian River Lagoon are also favorite pastimes. Visitors can relax with a stroll down the mile-long Hammock Trail. Waterfront pavilions and picnic areas are great for family outings. Full-facility campsites and a boat ramp are available.
