beach sand and tide pools

Ponce Inlet Beach Scenes Photography at Low Tide

There are three ways to get to the beach at Ponce Inlet. Drive on the sand to the end of the beach at the jetty, park and walk to the inlet, or if you live close, simply walk there. Pay to park at Smyrna Dunes Park and walk the boardwalk (it’s not finished yet) and sandy paths that lead to the beach. Pull up to the shore in a boat. This area of beach is one of my favorites to visit.

Beach at Ponce Inlet, November 2017

The other day I parked at the Park (I have a pass) and walked out to the shore. Because the tide was low, I had lots of little tide pools to explore. I have to really look to find shells here, but I did find a few keepers.  One was a rock snail which I rarely find.

It was late in the day and the park closes at 6:00PM this time of year. I walked down to the jetty and then made my way back.

Sunset… almost

My walk was a nice break from sitting at the computer working. The peace and solitude of the beach this time of year can’t be beat. It’s still warm enough to get wet without being cold and some of the little pools were fairly deep.

Ponce Lighthouse across the inlet… You can’t get there from here!

There were people out strolling around and this is one place that dogs are allowed, so I saw a few of them. One couple was being photographed – maybe engagement pictures? It’s a beautiful spot for that.
