Drive your car onto New Smyrna Beach Florida

Drive your car or truck onto New Smyrna Beach and cruise for miles. Itís a drive on beach where you can rent quads, golf carts or a three wheeled moped bug kind of thing. Itís got a great small town beach atmosphere.

Flagler Avenue, the Boardwalk of New Smyrna Beach. This little community still has the old time charm of a small Florida beach town. Everything you need for a day at the beach, surf shops, beach stores, restaurants and bikini bars.

Just north of Flagler Avenue, New Smyrna Beach.  My trucks loaded down for a week at the beach.

If you donít want to drive on the beach, there is also a parking here with restrooms and showers.

New Smyrna Beach is just south of Daytona Beach. Finding the drive on ramps is a little tricky, so Iíd to print a map before your leave. From I-95 take 44 East (Canal St.) to the North Causeway which turns into Flagler Ave, take it to the end and your driving on the beach.

Map It! Plug this address into you navigation radio or your favorite mapping software. Itíll get you right where you need to go: 518 Flagler Ave, New Smyrna Beach, Florida Ė This happens to be one of my favorite bikini bars called The Breakers which is at the end of the Flagler Ave Ramp

Drive the Beach!

Before you do anything, drive this bikini beach. There are several entrance ramps for accessing the beach. See Map it above.

Watch the tides.

At high tide youíll only be able to drive south from the Flagler Avenue Ramp in new Smyrna Beach, thatís if they let you on the beach at all.

If the Flagler Avenue Ramp is closed, just follow Atlantic Avenue North to the Beachway Avenue ramp. You should be able to drive on the beach from there. Low tide usually isnít a problem.

Iíd use the ramp at the end of Flagler Avenue, itís downtown, New Smyrna Beach. The downside is it tends to close earlier at high tide and high tide cuts off access from the north. Drive the beach south and then north.

Your main landmark is the life guard tower, not the little ones, the one thatís three stories high. It happens to be at the park with restrooms, shower and the Flagler Avenue Ramp.

When youíre done driving, park on the beach as close to the "big" life guard tower as you can. There are several snack bars along the beach. They rent beach umbrellas, beach chairs, quads and golf carts. Stay off the soft sand, you donít want to get stuck. Of course if you do, there are plenty of people to help push you out. Donít be afraid to ask for help.

The other ramp Iíd use is a little further north at the end of Beachway Avenue.  Once on the sand, head south until you see the washed out foundation wall.  I always park a couple hundred yards north of there, it leaves about a Ĺ mile walk to the life guard tower, bathrooms and shower and the Flagler Avenue ramp.

Motorcycles on the beach? I think theyíre allowed. Make sure to bring a board for the kick stand.

Can I drive the beach north from New Smyrna Beach to Daytona Beach? Unfortunately, no you canít, water gets in the way.

Flagler Avenue ďold FloridaĒ

Itís a little strip tucked away in New Smyrna Beach with a lot of charm.  It has an ďold FloridaĒ appeal with itís locally owned shops, restaurants and bars.  You wontí find any franchises here which helps give Flagler Avenue some of itís charm.

This is a true sea side beach street lined with palms. You can also find banana trees, flowering hibiscus and many other tropical Florida plants and flowers. Street signs and lamp posts are painted aquamarine with sculpted in sea creatures.

Where to go and what to do? Check out some of my suggestions:

Restaurants and bars on Flagler Avenue in new Smyrna Beach

Bikini bars are just casual places which welcome beach attire including bikinis. I think most of the bars here allow girls in a bikini, just now guys.

Because it's a beach community, restaurants here are also casual.  I think most of these would also allow girls in a bikini. Otherwise throw on some casual clothes and enjoy lunch or dinner.

The Breakers - Walk up the Flagler Avenue Ramp and into The Breakers, itís the only bikini bar right on the beach. They have a deck where you can watch the cars, trucks and bikini beach traffic cruise by.

Riverview Charlieís, although itís not on the water, itís at the end of Flagler Ave just over the causeway on the inter-costal waterway, located in the Riverview Hotel, enjoy dinner while you watch beautiful Florida sunsets.

Beacon Diner - Learn how to live life in New Smyrna Beach, stop by for some coffee and a chat with the locals.
