    Beaches & Blueways

    Explore 17 miles of white sandy beaches.

    You'll never run out of new things to see and do outdoors. There are laid-back adventures like strolling on miles of seaside boardwalk and beach. There are trails to walk, bike, or horseback ride. We're also home to North America's most biologically diverse estuary, the Indian River Lagoon. There's ocean diving on the many wrecks, or try your hand at surfing. We were named the 4th best town for surfing by Surfing Magazine! There are backwater kayaking, paddle boarding, sunset dolphin tours; and, we're the redfish capital of the world. The star attraction in New Smyrna Beach is its 17-mile stretch of white sandy beaches. Our beach is well known to surfers, offering some of the finest wave action on the east coast with wave breaks that are plentiful for expert and amateur surfers alike. If you're traveling with your four-legged family members, be sure to check out the dog beach located on the north side of the jetty at Smyrna Dunes Park.
