Great for a long walk with your doggies. The fall is the best time for us to enjoy this beach park. Wonderful breeze on a GREt beach!

This is the best beach access if you are looking for quiet time. It is a pay to park option but you can walk the boardwalk and it offers beach access where you can take your dog. Really beautiful areas on and off intercoastal.

We visited the Smyrna dune park and were surprised that there is a $10 daily entrance fee. Once I got over that, I enjoyed the park. There is a boardwalk trail through the dunes to the beach that is about a half mile long. Along the way there are flowers and wildlife (turtles) which is very nice. It made for... More

Beautiful and well-planned. The boardwalk provides for a relaxing, elevated view (not to mention the lookouts) and the dog trails are perfect for four-legged or faster visitors. Bring shoes or sandals in summer -- boardwalk can get quite hot. Definitely worth the trip from South Florida.

I've been all around Florida, but I can't remember ever seeing someplace like this. It's desolate, yet full of life. The boardwalk makes for great walking/jogging and provides clear views all around. You can see the Ponce Inlet lighthouse, the intracoastal, and Atlantic simultaneously.

Go at sunrise,,,the photo opportunities are worth it. The sand has patterns left from moving water...picking seashells you have an abundance at this time of day.

We were staying at the Riverview Hotel at the end of Flaggler Ave. so we grabbed the hotel bikes, rode them them the end of the beach to the inlet, and locked them up next to the stairs that led up into the dunes. From here, we walked the length of the boardwalk that ran across the dunes. There is... More
