Stunning early morning walk

We visited early in the morning to watch the sunrise. Stunning walk with the family before breakfast.

We stumbled upon this gem after we did the dinner night cruise the night before. It was so beautiful. Sand was white, water was clear, and very few people there. We decided to take the walk around on the boardwalk it was simply beautiful. Was surrounded by nature, wildlife, and sounds of ocean waves.

This beach isn't your typical beach where you get out of the car, drag your chairs and cooler a few feet and set up camp. This is more for nature lovers, who will enjoy walking a few miles on the boardwalk and step on the beach at one of the exits. The views are very pretty. You can see the... More

We've been to some great dog parks, the one in Deland is awesome, but this one is the best if you & your fur babies like to do a little swimming. Check the tidal charts online and go, if you can, when the tide is rising. That's when you'll get the cleanest swimming conditions & are more likely to see... More

We absolutely love Dunes Park. Very dog-friendly, and absolutely lovely. Great view of the lighthouse, calm warm water, and a boardwalk. What more could you as for? One tip: Bring cash! It's $10 for the day or $20 for a year pass, and they don't take credit cards.

We love to walk, and finding this boardwalk was a treat for us. Lots of side jaunts out to the water, overlooking the Ponce de Leon lighthouse. Adults and kids alike would enjoy this.

Boardwalks to permit walking over the dunes. Did not seem to be worth the $10 per car cost to visit. We were already staying on the beach so not really a good stop for us. We stayed less than 10 minutes.

Great place for your dog. Be mindful of the people fishing and watch for jellyfish. A nice washing station when we are done taking Samson for a dip in the water. Most folks keep there dogs on a leash and the area has always been free from pet "prizes".

It's an awesome place just to get away like you're on a different planet. It's just a nice walk or run and it's right next to the dog beach.
