There are four distinct areas of beach in New Smyrna consisting of over 17 miles of beautiful beaches. They each have something unique to offer.
At the north end of the peninsula, you will find Smyrna Dunes Park which is the only beach where you can bring your pets (dogs must be leashed at all times.). This section of beach is along Ponce Inlet from the Coast Guard Station down to the jetty by the mouth of the Inlet. There is an amazing walkway which loops through the dunes as well and can be used for beach access or recreation. It is a popular early morning spot for walkers and joggers and the loop is just over 1-1/2 miles.
Another five plus mile stretch of car-free beautiful white sand begins at 27th Avenue and continues past Mary McLeod Bethune Beach Park. The beach becomes more natural the further south one travels where the white hard pack sand gives way to a soft golden beach. Many of our New Smyrna vacation rentals are along this end of the beach, so you can walk out the door and onto the beach.
