Nature

Your space for nature

A distinctive getaway, Florida's beautiful Space Coast offers miles of natural adventure, across coastal scrub and pine flatwoods to mangrove forests and salt marshes to casual walkable beaches where turtles nest in season.

When you think of the coast you naturally think of our beaches, but what's amazing about this area is that the natural wonders only start on the beach. The Space Coast has 20,000 acres of fresh water rivers and lakes bordered by approximately 170,000 acres of wetlands. We are located where temperate and sub-tropical climate zones meet, which means that you can find animals and plants here that are so rare they are found nowhere else on earth.

Grab a kayak and paddle alongside manatees or dolphins. Look in the air and you may see Bald Eagles on the wing or a flock of Roseate Spoonbills resting in a lagoon-two of more than 300 species of birds here along 40 stops on the Great Florida Birding & Wildlife Trail. Ride on horseback, on a bike, try standup paddle boarding or just take a walk. It's only natural that you'll love the outdoors on the Space Coast.

The Space Coast is rich in tours and expert tour guides, for land and water excursions, amazing wildlife observation treks and Hidden Gems, our curated self-guided adventures reveal secrets only the natives know.  For those looking for something unusual and unique, adventurers can look no further than nighttime bioluminescent kayaking. This phenomenon is unique to the area in that tiny luminous organisms that are scattered underwater like sparkling stars amongst shimmering sea grass. Think darting colorful fish to pods of dolphins and manatees and bioluminescence gives light to all the busy nighttime underwater activity.
