While the surrounding areas have fantastic firework shows, including New Smyrna Beach’s July 4th celebration at Riverside Park, nothing beats your private show on the beach where you can watch the fireworks from miles and miles away. There will also be great views from Disappearing Island.

Make sure to watch the tides levels for the weekend. The beach will not be accessible until 2 hours before low tide.

  • 7/1 – High Tide: 7:12pm, Low Tide: 1:30pm
  • 7/2 – High Tide: 7:25am, Low Tide: 1:39pm

Also, check the weather and traffic. The Coke Zero 400 is going on this weekend, so you can expect a little traffic. It helps to be prepared!

    1. There are a handful of restaurants along the beach in New Smyrna – from Traders on South. We usually watch the fireworks in Riverside Park to get the best view!
