Even though my husband tried to kill me by having me climb the 203 steep steps up to the top..... It was well worth the climb. The views are amazing. This is a must do if you are in the area. Go to the gift shop and buy yourself a t-shirt that says you climbed it because after my legs... More

The Ponce Inlet Lighthouse is very interesting. There's a museum, and you can climb the stairs to see a wonderful view of the area.

Great for families with school aged children. The climb to the observation deck is well worth the exercise if you're up to the steps. A breathtaking panorama of ocean, river & surrounding area.

I live in the area as you can see and Ponce Inlet is absolutely beautiful. There is a park at the inlet where you can go and be "drive free" while enjoying the very best that Volusia County Beaches have to offer. Go ahead...get some sand in your shoeS!

At Ponce Inlet (which back in early Spanish times was referred to as Mosquito inlet!!!) one can see a lovely lighthouse with a great deal of history attached, several buildings which tell of the history of the families who lived there, plus drive around and find a nice place to eat. Our musician friends play at Hidden Treasures right on... More

A must visit if in the Daytona area - fun for all ages! Whether climbing the lighthouse, learning about the areas marine life and seeing the rescued creatures at marine Science, paddle boarding, chartering a boat for deep sea fishing or the Fun Cat Catamaran for a sunset cruise, you will find Ponce Inlet has all that and much more...

The beach is very clean and makes for an excellent family outing. The nearby lighthouse is a great attraction that is very reasonable. The view from the top is great. There's a playground in the shadow of the lighthouse, and, a pretty kool gift shop. The nearby restaurant is a very short walk from the beach or lighthouse. Nice place... More
