“Great Family Vacation Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Ormond Beach is a beautiful beach, this is for sure. It is a nice wide beach with soft white sand. The beach was very clean as well. The main drawback is that they still allow driving on the beach. The beach would be so much more enjoyable if they would disallow this.

I did run into a few vagabonds hanging around at the beach or taking use of the hotel outdoor showers (those used to wash off the sand before entering the pool ares.) But, they were not bothering anyone or trying to panhandle.

All in all, our trip was a great one. The beach was beautiful and was not crowded at all. This is a great place to go for family vacations, couples, friends, or just on your own. It has a slower pace than some other beaches. This is a very relaxing place..very quiet.

“Good Alternative to Daytona Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Although I'm not a big fan of cars on the beach (legal in both Daytona and Ormond Beaches), the beach in Ormond beats Daytona by a mile in my opinion. There are a lot less people, no "ghetto" types hanging around, no high-rise buildings and much more cleaner. It draws both families and retirees not only because of the ocean but it also boasts a rich and colorful history in its not so distant past.

This was our first visit to this beach. It was great to walk on and very clean. Not crowded and those walking were very respectful and friendly.

“Pelicans, Dolphins and Sunshine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We loved this beach as is was easy to walk upon, well packed down. The water this time of year was lovely and warm. There were folks fishing and others swimming. The waves were gentle the day we were here.
