After all the years we have been going to the Daytona Beach area, we finally discovered Lighthouse Point Park. We loved it. The beach is the same as most of Daytona Beach, but without all the hotels and condos - and you can park your car on it. The park has good restroom facilities. We enjoyed walking out on the... More

Good destination for everyone. A must see. Climb to the top to get a spectator view of the ocean, rivers, Daytona and New Smyrna.

While definitely the lighthouse brings visitors here, the beach is great! Not too crowded, not too far a walk, a nice covered place to have lunch. It does cost $10 a car to get in but we'll definitely return just for the beach!

We did not get to spend a lot of time here, but it is very well tended, very pleasant, and lovely. Daytona Beach and Ormond Beach and the surrounding towns are lovely. There is pride of ownership everywhere you turn. Lighthouse lovers will not be disappointed with the Park. It has an interesting history, as do many lighthouses.

When you're ready for a break from the sun and sand please visit this great place. It's a wonderful way to learn about sea turtle rescues and have a chance to touch stingrays and even baby sharks. I only wish it were larger and had a few more exhibits to share. Definitely worth spending a little time at and helping... More

We come here every year. It is a must do. We climb to the top every year. It is one of the few remaining lighthouses still functioning.

You will not regret discovering the first Fresnel Lens is here that came to America, it's the 2nd tallest lighthouse in America, and the views are great. So much to see, learn about, steps from the docks and science & marine center. A fantastic and must see while you are here.

Great historical landmark. Refreshing change from the hot sand and beach! The gift shop has quite a few interesting "finds" as well.
