Coconut Palms Beach Resort is a beachfront condominium offering direct access to the coast. Depending on which side of the building your condo is on, you can sit on your balcony and enjoy a spectacular sunrise with a cup of coffee or an awe-inspiring sunset with a chilled glass of your favorite wine. For those of you who prefer to dine out, several of the city's top restaurants are within a five to ten-minute drive along with a Publix grocery store where you can stock up on necessities. The nearest dog-friendly park is only a few minutes north on S Atlantic Ave.
As for the weather, you couldn't ask for any better with summers in the high 80s and low 90s and winters in the 60s and 70s. You won't find too many days when you can blame the weather for not going out and taking your walks.
While the condominium complex sits only a few feet away from the white, sandy dunes, you don't necessarily need to always resort to taking your daily outings on the beach, especially if you're not the kind of person to enjoy navigating through tourist foot traffic. Instead, consider crossing S Atlantic Avenue at one of the designated crossings to venture into the nearby neighborhood. The streets in this area are much quieter, providing a more residential strolling location which can put you at ease if you're not very enthused by the presence of crowds.
However, if those crowds don't bother you, the beach is still a great place to take your pooch for a good run. While there are no off-leash areas along the sand, you can still enjoy a good jog in the immediate vicinity of your condo without too much effort. Just remember to clean up after your pet when using this space!
The beach offers you and your pup miles of open space to wander along for as far as your legs can carry you. The amount of people that are utilizing this space, however, can vary with the seasons. Keep that in mind when you decide to take a quick stroll on the sands. Your pup will simply need to remain on their leash in this area so you don't lose them in the waves.
Ten minutes to the north is Smyrna Dunes Park, a large dog-friendly area at the tip of the peninsula. Here, you and your four-legged friend can enjoy walking along the nature trails and boardwalks running through the park or spend some one-on-one time playing on the beach before you jump in the water to cool off while going for a swim. The beach area in Smyrna Dunes Park may have its own set of regulations for swimming, so double check before diving in.
