Nice Beach Without Driving

Ormond Beach beach's are clean and are a No Drive Beach. More lay back atmosphere than the party feel of Daytona Beach.

I'm very...judgmental of beaches as a Marine biology student. But this beach was incredibly clean and interesting since cars are allowed on the beach, which is amazing cause I have an 88 year old grandmother who was able to get down to the beach because we could take our car. Sadly, my dog Sophie had to stay behind because this... More

The beach was clean. The people friendly and respectful. So were the lifegaurds we met. The free beach drive on access because one of us was handicaped was a classy touch.

My first time on the Atlantic side of Florida and I was very impressed. The sand was soft away from the water, but nicely packed close to the water. The water was perfect and clearer than I anticipated. Loved that it was away from the crowds of Daytona also. We would definitely visit this beach again.

Don't tell anyone about this hidden gem. The beaches here are relatively empty and beautiful. The downside, there is not much to do in Ormond Beach and Daytona is a bit sleazy.

Our home beach! There are no "sketchy" parts of Ormond Beach, unlike Daytona to the South. To the North of Granada there are traffic-free areas perfect for taking a walk or spending the day in the sun and surf. However, getting to most of it can be difficult because of the limited access and parking. From Granada heading South, you... More

Ormond Beach was perfect for us. Not too crowded like Daytona Beach. The sand was smooth enough to walk or run barefooted. Lots of great restaurants nearby. People are very friendly. Traffic isn't bad. Several turtle nest on the beach. Every morning around 6:30ish the "turtle conservation" people are out on the beach marking new turtle nest or counting newly... More
