- As a result of the rock jetties, the beach at Sebastian Inlet is ideal for surfing. North of the jetties, surfers find a constant break of crashing waves. Another choice spot is nicknamed "Monster Hole." It is located on the south side of the Inlet about 1/3 mile out. Swimmers are asked to use areas north of the jetties and beyond the surfing spot. This is to minimize accidents.
Swimmers looking for a quieter location can hike down the beach about a mile to the less developed area near McLarty Treasurer Museum. There is also a parking lot and bathhouse on the oceanside of A1A. Here anglers, beachcombers and swimmers toss their blankets and gear for an afternoon of relaxation. While in the southern reaches of the park, be sure to visit the McLarty Treasurer Museum, which tells the story of Spanish treasure galleons that sank along the east central Florida coast.
Back north near the Inlet, developed amenities including a restaurant, gift shop, and several bait shops and concessions that fulfill the vacationers' needs.
Additional features include national surfing contests for novice and expert surfers, scuba diving and snorkeling tours, and sea turtle walks during the summer nesting season.
