Such a nice walk on the boardwalk. I thought it would never end. The 1 1/2 mile boardwalk over the dunes was very relaxing. There's also sections that go out to the beach. Saw sharks (small sand sharks I believe) in the ocean and turtles in the dunes. I'll be sure to take this walk every time I visit NSB.

This nature park is a great place to watch a sunset and get in some exercise while catching a glimpse of local wildlife. Set across from the Ponce Inlet you can see the lighthouse and sailboats coming and going. It's a nice place for walking the dog, taking the kids to play in a little surf and see the dunes.... More

It's 10 dollars to get in. They have a dog beach which is nice. They also have on beach parking. Bring plenty of deet because you will get attacked by the biting midges. My leg is full of bites at least 30 bites. Oh the pain as Dr Smith would say.

We loved all the seashells! The sand is more crushed shells, not as easy to walk on. We could have stayed for hours. The downfall were the bathrooms, if you didn't use the visitor center the bathrooms were terrible.

This park is beautiful. There is a boardwalk all the way around it with look out points. The view of the Ponce Inlet and Lighthouse are spectacular. Plenty of wildlife to view. Great day trip excursion.

I loved seeing the nature in the rough. There were many lovely sites of plants and turtle habitats. It is a wonderful place to get in a leisurely walk or a good workout! I always enjoy going back when I visit New Smyrna Beach!

Nice beach for dogs with Intracoastal and Atlantic access. A long walk on the boardwalk to access, so wear shoe and consider your pet's feet. Check the temp on the walkway and carry your pup, bring dog shoes. We cooled their feet with water on a day with no doggy shoes. Keep your pets leashed. We love coming here. There's... More
