Dog Beaches in the Daytona Beach area

Smyrnadunes

Want to take your dog to the beach while you are visiting the Daytona Beach area? Well, dogs are not allowed at all on most of the beach areas in the county. However, there are two beaches where dogs are allowed in the Daytona Beach area. Stick to those and you will be able to give your dog the beach lifestyle, too.

The two dog beaches that are in the Daytona Beach area, which is in Volusia County, include:

Smyrna Dunes Park - 2995 N. Peninsula Ave New Smyrna Beach
This place is great whether you have a dog with you or not. There's beautiful elevated 2-mile long boardwalk that is handicap accessible and good for strollers, too. Taking this stroll you will see views of habitat where there are many gopher tortoises, and you will see beautiful beach views. Around halfway through there are picnic tables with an ocean view if you want to take a picnic lunch or stop for a water break. From there you can also walk down to the beach. There are restrooms at this park (at the parking lot only), beach access, and picnic areas. The admission fee is $10 per vehicle. 

Lighthouse Point Park 5000 S. Atlantic Ave Ponce Inlet
Dogs are allowed on the boardwalk and inlet beach area, but they are not allowed on the jetty. They jetty provides a beautiful backdrop for pictures. While you are in this area, consider going to the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse to climb to the top for an awesome 360 degree view of the area. Admission is $10 per vehicle.

Both of these beaches are south of Daytona Beach in the New Smyrna Beach and Ponce Inlet areas. They are beautiful beaches and worth the extra minutes it will take to get there. If you are staying in the heart of Daytona Beach it will probably take you around 20 minutes or so to get to these beaches. Dogs are not allowed on other beaches in the Daytona Beach area, so plan accordingly. If you take your dog onto the beach in areas where they are not allowed then there's a chance beach patrol will approach you to let you know of the rule violation.
