Beach Lot Parking Pass Information

Beach lot parking passes:

Beginning October 5, 2017, all new passes distributed are ELECTRONIC PASSES. Applications are to be made


and no paper passes will be issued.

Parking will be enforced daily from 9:00am-5:00pm at the City's five beachfront parks. To avoid a fine, vehicles parked in the lots during these hours must have a New Smyrna Beach parking pass or must purchase a daily pass at the lot. Daily fines for vehicles without passes are $35.

Non-Volusia County residents must purchase an annual parking pass for $100. F.I.N.D. permits and non-resident permits MUST be renewed annually.

The daily parking fee is $20 and is paid at the lot.

Vehicles with a valid disabled parking permit are not charged to park and do not need a beachfront parking pass.

Residents can get a free parking pass online.

Volusia County residents may obtain a FREE PARKING PASS with proof of residency.

Frequently asked questions 

Will this pass also permit me to drive or park on the beach?

The New Smyrna Beach beach lot parking pass only is for the City’s five beachfront parking lots (see map on this page). This enables citizens to park and walk down on to the beach. Drivers who would like to drive or parking directly on to the beach must purchase a pass from Volusia County Government (a separate agency that manages the beaches). For info on beach driving, visit .

Do the parking kiosks accept cash?

Each of the five beachfront lots has an electronic kiosk that only accepts credit cards (Mastercard and Visa) and cash but not coins. Change is not provided for cash payments. Please make sure you have the exact amount ($20/day). 

Do you have an online application?


If a family has two vehicles, is it possible to get a parking pass one for each vehicle?  In other words, two parking passes?

Yes- apply online.

Can I mail in the application with a proof of residency?

No. Effective 10/5/2017 online is the only form of application accepted by the City of New Smyrna Beach.

Does the parking fee also apply to parking at Bethune Beach Beachfront and the parking spaces that are across the street?

No. The beach lot parking pass only applies to the City’s five beachfront parks listed on the map on this page.

We usually have family gatherings twice a year at New Smyrna Beach. We park four or five cars at the lot in the 27th Avenue Beachfront Park.  If one car has a parking pass decal that was issued to a Volusia County Resident, must the other cars pay for parking if we are in a group?   

Yes. The other non-resident cars will either need to pay the daily $20 fee at the lot or purchase an annual beach lot parking pass.

Am I eligible for a "parking lot" pass as a property owner and not a resident?

New Smyrna Beach has a lot of property owners and weekend or seasonal residents who contribute to the maintenance of these five beachfront parks through annual property taxes. Apply online with your Volusia County tax bill with your address on it along with your registration, we will issue you an electronic free parking pass. 

I’m a NSB homeowner who resides out-of-state part-time throughout the year.  I recently received my parking decal for my personal car. However, sometimes we fly down to NSB and have a rental car.  How should I handle my NSB parking decal?

The online application has an option for rental cars. You must have a copy of your rental agreement showing the dates of use. 

I’m a Volusia County resident who will be renting a car temporarily. May I get a free pass for my rental car?
