We love this drive-on beach! It’s so easy to set up for the day. It’s clean, safe and has many amenities like restrooms and restaurants near by. There are beach chair, umbrella, golf cart, bike and food truck vendors on the beach. Lifeguards are posted along the beach as well as a police patrol. There’s even a small downtown you can walk to with many shops, bars and restaurants. It’s a cool place!
Enjoyed another great day in New Smyrna Beach, what I call a hidden gem. I first heard about it when visiting Central Florida. So I, put it on my bucket list of places to go. I love the beach! These days, I live by the idea in mind to create new memories and enjoy life, and go on stay-cations as much as possible. A wonderful place to visit with your family.

Very nice beach - sand hard-packed, easy to set up beach canopy. Cars can drive right down on the beach and part for the day. People you meet are friendly. Very enjoyable.
