It's great the city of New Smyrna dedicates a stretch of beach (on the Halifax River) for people to bring their dogs to enjoy the water. The park is clean and has plenty of trash bins for throwing away dog waste. It's also super helpful to have the two hoses for cleaning off the pups before heading home. The biggest... More

It's a great beach spot with a good walkway over the natural Florida scrub land. A nice place to swim too!

Very nice beach and park. Section that allows pets too. Great view of the Ponce lighthouse. Very active with surfers and fishing on the jetty. Huge white sand beach.

Found this a nice way to walk to the beach and observe the dunes along the way. You also have an excellent view of the lighthouse. The New Smyrna Beach is quite nice without too much crowding. There is a $5 fee, cash only.

We have three dogs from age 1 through 11 that we took here for my birthday earlier this year. The beach is clean and was uncrowded for the time we chose. The walk is long (had to carry the eleven year old back) but peaceful, quiet and very pleasant. The grounds have plenty of trash cans and doggie bags all... More

This is a little gem of a walk (1.5 miles around) that encompasses the sand dunes of FL, the Indian River on one side, and the ocean on the other. There is a observation point (2 flights of stairs) that will provide a stunning view, of both, in addition to the Ponce Inlet lighthouse. Best times for pictures are sunrise,... More

Great place to walk the boardwalk and enjoy the natural dunes and beautiful Atlantic. Has several beach access points. Dog park is here as well. Great beaches, of course, as would be expected! You can purchase an annual pass for $20, which is a bargain, since daily parking is $5.

What a gem! If it wasn't so hot in July you could easily spend the day here. Not crowded, beautiful beaches, unspoiled and clean! A long haul (1 1/2miles on the boardwalk) to the farthest point and a bit hard on older dogs but worth it for the views on the water and quiet. Other areas let you get to... More
