Atlantic Hotel -- The only hotel on the beach. Can accommodate between forty and fifty guests. Rates, $2.00 per day;
special rates per week or month. Mrs. Maggie Knapp, manager. Every room in the house has a good view of the ocean,
especially the pretty sun-parlor which everyone enjoys. There is no better beach on the Atlantic coast, it being hard as
an asphalt pavement and 300 feet wide at low tide. This, with the shell roads, make miles of delightful wheeling and
driving. The surf is almost entirely free from undertow, making surf bathing particularly safe and enjoyable. Coronado
has a post office, good hotel, livery stable, good drinking water, etc. Newell's Transfer hacks and carriages meet all
trains at New Smyrna, also has teams to hire--stable on beach.
