Mary McLeod Bethune Beach Park

Nestled on six acres between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean, this quiet spot south of New Smyrna Beach features a boardwalk on the ocean side and a fishing pier on the river side - where visitors often catch a glimpse of manatees. Amenities abound, with beach access for swimmers and basketball and tennis courts for the athletes. A community building complements the overall setting. The children's playground is near the pavilion, barbecue grills, picnic tables and restrooms. Parking at the edge of the beach is convenient for visitors who enjoy the sand and surf.
