The Sebastian Beach Inn in Melbourne Beach, FL has a very rich history. It was actually used as a coastal watchtower in WW II (the tower itself blew down during a hurricane in 2004). It is the last remaining watchtowner in Brevard County! This place has hosted some famous bands on its stage (I saw Gregg Allman from the Allman Bros band some years ago) and has had many famous patrons over the years.
The waters off the shores of the SBI had many famous shipwrecks. During the 17th and 18th centuries many Spanish Galleons met their fate off the Melbourne Beach to Ft Pierce beaches. Treasure Hunters have often worked these waters...including the World Famous treasure hunter Mel Fisher from Key West, FL.
In the 1980s the place was getting ready to be knocked down when the present owner bought up the land and turned it into one of the Space Coasts great weekend hangouts. If you have not had one of their World Famous Bahama Mama's you have not really become an official resident!
The Sebastian Beach Inn address is: 7035 S. Hwy A1A, Melbourne Beach, FL 32951
It is about 10 miles south of Melbourne Beach proper. From I-95 get off at Rt 192 and head to the Ocean. When you reach A1A make a right and head south until you run into the SBI...directly on the Ocean!
