New Smyrna Beach allows cars to drive on the beach for a flat rate per car. You can also gain access to this park that allows access to picnic areas and boardwalk nature trails for a small fee that includes ramps to the beach. A nice value for those interested in the natural habitat of the Florida wilderness.

We found this part on the last day of our vacation, and walked it in the morning, and then later in the afternoon. There is a nominal ($5/car) fee every day. The trail is actually a boardwalk elevated above the dunes that goes for roughly 1.25 miles in a loop. There are lots of views of the sea and the... More

The best dog beach I've ever been to, you walk through dunes and see gopher tortoises, when you get to the water you see porpoises!

We in central Florida are blessed to have this beach on Ponce Inlet to visit, frequent, hang, exercise, and enjoy. And to be able to bring your pets? Outstanding! For years now I try to go on Friday mornings and be out on the beach by 8:00am. There with my dog on a Long leash it's pure heaven. We walk... More

We looked for a dog beach close to Orlando, and at only a little over an hour away, and I'm so glad we went to Smyrna Dunes. It was a lovely, sandy walk to the beach since we arrived in the afternoon with our little dog and the boardwalk was off-limits. The beach was exceptionally well-kept and clean (except for... More

This place is amazing. It's almost a two mile boardwalk. If you take your dog, you have to be off the boardwalk by 10 am. The beach is also dog friendly.

This is a very nice park. There is a small charge ( I think $5 per car ) but it is well worth it. You can take a nice walk on the boardwalk which is a loop that is a little bit more than a mile in total. Lots of stopping off points to access a beautiful beach. While we... More

The city is really cool but it’s not the best place to go for a beach day. The beach was clean but there isn’t much of a “beach area” because there are so many cars. It’s definitely a surfer beach. If you just want to have a beach day I would suggest going to the park. We wanted to see... More

Perfect park !Long board walk & sandy ocean/river beach walks, There are views of dolphins along inter-costal waters about 5 PM and surfing/surfers to watch along the ocean. Folks fishing and others para-surfing catching the wind/waves along the inlet. WOW!

The views are great and you can see gopher turtles in their natural habitat. I have an awful fear of snakes and there are snakes in the area so be warned, my husband usually scouts out ahead of me and so far I have not seen one. Take a bottle of water it can get very hot and there is... More
