Pets At The Beach

For all you dog lovers there is a place in New Smyrna you can take your pet.

Smyrna Dunes Park is 73 acres located on the northern tip of the New Smyrna Beach peninsula where you and your dog can enjoy the beach. There is 2 miles of boardwalk with views of the Indian River, Ponce Inlet and the Atlantic Ocean. A great view of the lighthouse while walking. Meet other dog lovers and see a wide variety of animals, birds, reptiles, marine life and vegetation in their natural habitat. You must keep your pet on a leash at all times, I have seen dogs loose early in the morning before there is too many people. It is 3.50 per car but you can walk over for free.

Thre is also a dog park at 2641 Paige Avenue. This park features concrete play areas separated for large and small dogs and shelter and a dog water fountain. Directions.

Several condos including Bouchelle Island, Eastwind Villas and Oceanwalk accept pets, Coquina, Longboard and Night Swan Bed & Breakfast accept pets and several rental homes do as well. Contact me for more information and I will put you in touch with them.

If you lose your pet while you are here we have two local animal shelters:

Southeast Volusia Humane Society
1200 S. Glencoe Road

Edgewater Animal Shelter
Public Safety Blvd.
Enjoy the day!
