New Smyrna Beach serves as the gateway to the historic and picturesque Indian River Intracoastal Waterway and 13 glorious miles of Atlantic beachfront. The beautiful waters of New Smyrna Beach are not only prime recreational areas for boating, skiing and fishing, but also are lined with marinas and boat clubs as well as hotels, cottages, condominiums and bed & breakfast inns. The New Smyrna Beach Resort Area is the closest beach to Central Florida’s other attractions, but far enough away to provide a peaceful vacation, where a barefoot stroll on our moonlit beach is guaranteed to warm your spirit.
Southeast Volusia County offers more than 5,000 units, from swank, oceanfront condominium rentals to cozy mom and pop motels on the Intracoastal Waterway. Whether you’re looking for a quaint bed & breakfast for a romantic getaway, a waterfront room for an extended weekend or a three-bedroom condo or beach home for a family reunion, you’ll find our accommodators will go out of their way to ensure you have an enjoyable experience here.
History of New Smyrna Beach
The Old Stone Wharf, which dates back to the 18th century, can be viewed (but only at low tide!). Turtle Mound, the highest point of elevation in the area, is actually a mound of shells left by the Timucuan Indians, evidence of their shellfishing capabilities, and is located in Canaveral National Seashore Park.
