Stunning skies and shifting sands. Clouds pushed by maritime breezes offer a satisfying display on a daily basis. To get to the Atlantic waters, boardwalks pass through an expanse of sand dunes, home to a large population of gopher tortoises.
Visitors to Smyrna Dunes on the southern side of Ponce Inlet can savor nearly constant views of phenomenal celestial scenery. Walking north along the beach, one arrives at the south jetty, a favorite spot for anglers. From there, hikers turn west along Ponce Inlet, and then finally turn to the south where sunset views are arguably the most superb in the entire Florida Aquatic Gems area.
