We took day away from Orlando and drove to Daytona Beach. (about an hour drive). We booked surf lessons, which were great. (See review for that). The beach is nice, water was nice and the people were nice. Waves were small. Maybe 2 feet. We expected a tourist area and really thought the piers would have lots to do. Wrong.... More

We were surprised about all the cars and SUVs that were driving on the beach. There is an area where vehicles can park of the beach so people can take their things out of their car and have them on the beach. Only part of the Beach allows this.

Hated paying to get to the beach but it was so worth it after we got onto the beach. Loved that we could leave our stuff and not worry about someone stealing it.

The recumbent beach trikes were a blast! Have never done something like that before. It wore me out. I also enjoyed walking along the beach and playing in the waves with a boogie board!

First day arrived at 5:45 pm (Monday) and was not charged for driving in beach. No one was at gate. Second day, drove on beach two times (limit they give you). After 6pm (Tuesday) I was able to get on beach and not pay again. No real palm trees on beach. Almost no birds. No tropical, relaxing feeling. Tide can... More

The water is so clear and beautiful and there is a lot of beach. Beware of rip currents and swim near a life guard.

I wasn't sure of what to think of the cars on the beach at first. My first thought was of the safety of small children, leaking oil from cars polluting the beach and people blasting their car radios. I did not experience any of that. The cars drove respectively real slow. The sand was pristine. I then saw how beneficial... More

Daytona Beach seems to have more than its share of good body surfing days. That was the case the first two weeks this May, when despite an early tropical storm to our north, the water was still fun and safe to enjoy. We like what Daytona offers, firm sand, a nice boardwalk and the band shell and shops at Ocean... More

Beach was clean and easily accessible. We were not scared to walk barefooted like on some beaches. There were a lot of people, but not crowded. Beach was enjoyed by people of all ages.
