New Smyrna Beach, Florida

The coastal barrier city of New Smyrna Beach is “Florida’s Secret Pearl” for good reason. Consistently given recognition on numerous “best surf town” lists, New Smyrna Beach was even ranked as "one of the world's top 20 surf towns" by National Geographic Magazine. Water sports remain its most popular feature, with swimming, scuba diving, kite-surfing, and surfing at the forefront. Outdoors enthusiasts have little fear, however: you’ll discover myriad opportunities to fish, sail, motorboat, golf, hike, and more at New Smyrna Beach.

The City

Bridging the historic mainland with the “island” and its white, sandy beaches, the six-mile New Smyrna Beach (NSB) Waterfront Loop creates the heart of New Smyrna Beach. The loop views are of the Intracoastal Waterway, Indian River and Atlantic Ocean. In Orlando Sentinel surveys, central Floridians have named New Smyrna “Florida’s Best Beach” seven years running. New Smyrna Beach claims the distinction of being the second oldest city in Florida, though some historians believe it is even older than St. Augustine. Over 30 historical legends, artifacts and local site stand as a testament to New Smyrna Beach’s rich history.


A few cafes are available to get you started before your busy day on the beach.
