The beach is a small one but very nice. Good access, restrooms and picnic areas nearby. The beach was very clean. There was only one thoughtless owner who let their dog defecate on the path and left it for all to see. Shame on them. We got the year pass which was $20 as opposed to the $10 for a... More

Beautiful park to view dunes and ocean. Has raised walkway for easy walk to enjoy the peaceful views. Isolated from the town area so it is a calming experience in the middle of hectic vacations. Turtle homes abound and enjoyed seeing them in their natural habitat.

Beautiful but hot walk. You might want to wear a hat and sunscreen. It is very dry, but you can see some wildlife and the ocean breakers are awesome!

Beautiful coastal park with nature trails Great for families The parking is limited which is ideal to keep the place limited to users and more enjoyable The ocean is on one side and the inlet on the other Nice picnic areas The walkways are being replaced as they are well aged

A nice hike along a boardwalk in the dunes that comes out to the ocean. Beautiful views of the inlet

This is a beautiful walk on raised wooden walkways. Can bring a picnic. Walk to the beach and hunt for shells. See Ponce Inlet Lighthouse across the bay. Hunt for land turtles out of their holes and sunning.

Volusia County maintains this wonderful park. We have been searching for a "beach" where our dog can enjoy the water and beach! The park has two separate trails to access various parts within the park. The primary trail is an elevated boardwalk which is very easy walking and gives you the opportunity to place all your beach toys in a... More

We stayed in New Smyrna Beach for two nights with our dog. The dog beach part of the Dunes is poor at best. Not much beach space. You walk a mile to get to your destination( we are fit, but wow!). Its like they segragate your pets to one certain area. Its on the intercostal, not the ocean. The sand... More

We went down to the dunes park around sunset one day. It was ok. Peaceful with the long wooden walkways. Nothing to write home about but pretty nice to see if you have some time on your hands. You could see it or miss it.

Thank markymert
