Very nice beach. The beach was wide. Cars are allowed on the beach. You do not need 4 wheel drive on this beach. Any car will do. Weekends were very crowded, but not overly crowded. Weekdays are very pleasant. Tourist crowd only.

New Smyrna has a cute little "downtown" area with restaurants and shops right near the beach. Many hotels to stay ocean-side and miles of beautiful beaches!

We had about a half hour before we went to our river tour in the morning, so we stopped at the beach. It was not crowded and even the restrooms were clean. We stood up on the ramp and looked down on the beach and water. When we return to Florida, we will visit again and spend more time there.

We loved watching the sun come up here. There were a few people out here, but we were pretty much alone. The accesses are easy to find and there was plenty of parking.

Great Beach with drive on access (which was huge for us). Very clean, NO rocks whatsoever! Tide came in quick, but a gorgeous day and so much cooler than in central florida area. Well worth the drive from Orlando!

One of the last unpretentious beaches. Small shops and restaurants service the beach along Flagler ave. Lots of parking. With permit you can drive and park on beach. I swim, hike and ride my bike on it. There are several parks on beach with dressing and bathrooms. Many beach side restaurants up and down beach.

The sand is fine and soft. Water is a very comfortable temperature. Visited during full moon week, so the waves were quite big, not great for swimming. Boogy boards were perfect tho!
