About the Disappearing Island

If you are looking for something unique to do while you are staying in the New Smyrna Beach area, then we highly recommend checking out Disappearing Island! It sounds completely mystical; however, there is a perfectly logical explanation for this incredible area between Ponce Inlet and New Smyrna Beach. 

As the tide recedes each day, an island actually appears in the area. Although the island is only accessible by boat, it is an easy island to get to. Whether you choose to depart from the North Causeway boat ramp or the Port Orange Causeway park, you will be able to reach the island in no time at all. 

One of the best parts about heading to the island is the gorgeous views of all of the incredible homes along the water! You will be traveling through a minimum wake waterway, so be sure to keep a leisurely pace and take it all in!

Things to Do

Whether you are looking for fun things to do in the New Smyrna Beach area or wondering what there is to do on Disappearing island, there is always fun to be had! 

While waiting for your boat rental to access the island, you can enjoy the amazing view of the Ponce Inlet Light House. You can get up close and personal with the lighthouse, but the view from the Coast Guard station nearby is quite remarkable as well.

You will find plenty of people hosting their own little cookouts on the island, and we suggest renting some equipment and taking part in a beach cookout yourself! The kids can run around and play along the water’s edge while the adults sit in the sand and relax.

Due to the island being a low wake area with few natural waves and incredible New Smyrna Beach weather, the conditions for viewing dolphins are perfect. Of course, you may also be lucky to find a few dolphins during your trip to and from the island!

Where to Rent A Boat

As we said, you will need to rent a boat in order to reach the island, but there are a few different options that you can choose from!

Sandy Dollar Boat Rentals has some amazing deals on boat rentals and will offer you some of the most competitive prices around. They believe that everyone should have a chance to see New Smyrna Beach from the water, and their prices ensure that everyone is able to do so!
