Lighthouse Point Park is one of my favorite parks in Volusia County. It is a beach paradise located on the southern tip of Ponce Inlet, Florida. Lighthouse Point Park is located on the same tip as the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse & Museum and the Marine Science Center. For more information on the park visit https://www.volusia.org/services/public-works/coastal-division/coastal-parks/lighthouse-point-park.stml and to learn about the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse & Museum visit http://ponceinlet.org/ and the Marine Science Center is http://www.marinesciencecenter.com/.
There is a fee to enter the park, paid $20 for the annual park pass. Once you enter there is several places to park with 4 different boardwalks that go to the beach. The park has an isolated feel to it, I think because of its remote location and all the trees. You can walk and one the boardwalks and see just trees, glimpses of the ocean and no other people.
First set of photos are of the entrance to the park and the boardwalk. So far I have only walked the southern most boardwalk but I am sure I will eventually walk all 4. I plan on making more trips to the park.
Second set of the photos show views of the beach. There is a pier on the rocks with lots of people fishing. Dogs are allowed in the park and you will see signs reminding the dog owner’s to pick up the poop.
Third set of photos are of some other things that can be seen at the park. Across the Ponce Inlet you can see the New Smyrna Dune’s Park which is another wonderful park. From the Lighthouse Point Park you can see the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse. I also included some photos of people surfing and parasailing.
Fourth set of photos are some of the various birds that can be seen at the park. I saw an eagle but I didn’t get a photo, he was moving way to fast!
Remember: Take nothing but pictures, kill nothing but time, leave nothing but footprints
