New Smyrna Beach offers swimming, walking, biking, surfing, fishing, kite flying, shopping... or just lay back & listen to the ocean, watch the dolphins, manatees & enjoy the spectacular sunrises & sunsets. There are no cars on this portion of the beach, just beautiful white sand, pelicans, sand crabs, & sea turtles. Downtown New Smyrna Beach is a quaint town with waterfront seafood restaurants, surrounding marinas, deep-sea fishing charters, casino cruises, river cruises, nature preserves, & the Ponce Inlet fishing jetty. New Smyrna Beach straddles the Atlantic Intra-coastal Waterway & is really two towns in one. It is part island & part inland, oceanfront, & riverfront, complete with two downtowns.
Just a short distance south of our condo is the Canaveral National Seashore, a 57,000 acre national park nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River. Canaveral National Seashore is one of the longest stretches of pristine coastline in the United States. NASA & the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services protect this long barrier island from the construction & development so prevalent on many Florida beaches. The park provides visitors with hiking trails, campsites, a restored turn-of-the-century home, museum & a visitors’ information center, which provides ranger-led educational programs throughout the year. It is home to more than 250 species of birds and land animals. Sea turtles often do their nesting along the beaches and the Seashore. Canaveral National Seashore serves as a refuge for endangered & protected species of Florida wildlife.
Grocery stores & restaurants are just seconds/minutes away. You can actually walk across the street (a block away) to one plaza with a grocery store, restaurant and shops. Also every Saturday morning try to make the Farmer's Market off Canal Street from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The second Saturday of each month is New Smyrna's car show on Canal Street.

My husband and I have always dreamed of owning a second home in New Smyrna Beach and now it is a reality for us. As a real estate broker/owner in the Orlando area, this is our home away from home. We have had fun remodeling our beach condo to personalize it to our taste. Just to see and hear the ocean waves from our spacious, light and bright condo makes us feel like we are on vacation. We enjoy boating and New Smyrna Beach has Ponce Inlet for quick access out of the intercoastal and into the Atlantic Ocean.

We chose New Smyrna Beach over other beach towns because of its beautiful, pristine beaches, state parks, and proximity to the north Orlando area (only about 45 minutes away). It has a quaint village feel... not to big and not too small with many choices for restaurants and shopping. Money Magazine voted New Smyrna Beach as one of the top beach towns in the southeast. Fly into Orlando/Sanford airport and within 45 minutes you will be at our condo on the beach!
We loved watching the awesome space shuttle launches off our balcony and now the rocket launches (being just north of the Kennedy Space Center). There is no driving on our beach which is another reason we chose this location over others. Take a boat ride up the intercoastal to Ponce Inlet for lunch or dinner. Enjoy seeing the dolphins and an occasional manatee while on a local boat cruise. Come be our guests, you won't be disappointed. New Smyrna is Orlando's #1 beach. It is picture perfect and has two downtowns for great shopping.
