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

the boardwalk path is about 1.5 miles in length...you are in the sun most of the way...must wear shoes...you have access to the inlet and beach...not too crowded...reasonable fee...if you are in the area and plan to use park more than five days get the season pass...you also get access to the drive beach with the pass...good restrooms available...pet friendly

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

A beautiful, peaceful, not-too-crowded beach that's perfect for dogs and dog lovers. Pay $5 per car to enter. A beautiful walk to the beach past palm trees, boardwalks, and a turtle or two. You can watch boats pass by, see a light-house in the distance, and enjoy the serenity of the beach. Lots of friendly folks with dogs. Will definitely... More

However it wasnt crowded when I went, and the beach is beatiful...you can see the fish swimming underneath. The boardwalk is not that interesting, however you can see plenty of... More

Nice and peaceful. You can bring your dog. You can go walking, fishing, surfing, etc. It's a bit hot to talk on the boardwalks most of the year, but you can also just drive up the beach to park right by the jetty and walk around the area or go swimming/fishing/surfing.
