When many picture New Smyrna Beach, they think of stretching and crowded beaches, the lively shops, and restaurants on Flager Ave, or the bustling arts district on Canal Street. It might seem like it’s impossible to escape the crowds and tourist popular areas, but there are actually a number of isolated activities you can enjoy when you’re visiting us in New Smyrna Beach. If you’re looking to get your isolation or social distancing on, check out these awesome isolated activities in Florida to do on your vacation!
Hunt for the Most Secluded Beaches
It depends on the day, but there are a number of beaches that are traditionally less crowded than main tourist spots like New Smyrna Beach. Apollo Beach is at the northern end of the Canaveral National Seashore, a short drive south of New Smyrna Beach. There’s a small park fee, but once you’re in you have access to five parking spots along a six-mile stretch of beach, meaning that this beach is usually more secluded than others and has plenty of stuff to do in Florida! Beware that beach #5 is a nude beach, so don’t stop there if you want to keep it family-friendly!
Explore One of Our Paddle Board Trails
We have quite a few paddleboard and kayak trails that can be enjoyed mostly in isolation, other than passing the occasional fellow trailblazer. First-timers can try easy waterways like the Mosquito Lagoon Paddling Trail or take a guided personal tour with companies like the Marine Discovery Center or Paddle Board New Smyrna. You might not run into very many people, but you’re likely to see an abundance of wildlife!
Visit Smyrna Dunes Park
Located at the end of a peninsula, Smyrna Dunes Park is a great spot to visit for a little time on the sand. The park is accommodating to handicapped visitors, with over two miles of elevated, recycled lumber boardwalk and a 300-foot handicapped-accessible fishing pier. There are available restrooms and picnic pavilions, and you can choose to stretch out on the inlet shore beach or on the Atlantic Ocean. Admission to the park is $10 per vehicle, but you can also pick up a $20 annual inlet parks pass if you’re planning repeat visits!
