The Ocean Beach Sands Beach Club sits right on the coast, making it possible to be in the water within two minutes or less from the moment you leave your unit. You can sit out on the pool deck with a cup of coffee in the morning and watch the sunrise. Once you've had your cup of joe, you and your pup can hit the sand for your morning walk.
If you like to eat out at night, there are plenty of great restaurants within a five to ten-minute drive. For those of you who prefer to cook your own meals, there is a Publix grocery store five minutes to the north where you can stock up on food for yourself and your pup.
The summer weather in incredible with daytime highs in the low 90s and winter highs in the low 70s. You and your pooch can go for walks on almost every day of the year!
Living in the Ocean Sands Beach Club puts you in the envious position of having completely different types of terrain to choose from to take your daily walks on. To the west lies many residential blocks you can use for your walks. Many do not have sidewalks, so be sure to keep to the side of the road as much as possible. This also requires crossing S Atlantic Avenue which may have some quick-moving traffic, so exercise caution.
The beach offers the sandy dunes to venture across which can vary in their difficulty. If your shoes are finding tackling the dry sand a bit challenging, you can drift a little closer to the water where you'll have an easier time. Either way, you pooch will likely welcome the change of pace from the roads that they may be more accustomed to walking on.
The nearest green space is the beach which runs for miles to the south from the Ponce de Leon Inlet where you will find Smyrna Dunes Park. The beach is an excellent place for you and Fido to go for your walks, but you need to do so early in the morning before it gets too hot or the beach fills up with people, making it difficult for you to walk without them getting in the way.
Alternatively, Smyrna Dunes Park sits at the very tip of the peninsula where it juts out into the inlet. There are five complete ecosystems in the park including sandy dunes, scrub zones, oceanfront, saltwater marshes, and river banks. With boardwalks and trails, the two of you can enjoy wandering along to your heart's content. Then you can play on the dog-friendly beach before heading out into the inlet to cool off!
