The beach is pretty. But, the boardwalk area is a bit run down, trashy and a lot of homeless people sleeping every where and approaching you, We stayed on Daytona Beach Shores and so happy we did!!

At low tide the beach is fantastic for taking a long walk along the water. Lots of places to eat and drink along the way.

Beautiful Beach North and South

If you are here to visit the beach go north to Ormond Beach or south to Daytona Shores. It's only a couple miles. You can drive on the beach or park for free at one of the many waterfront parking areas. Ormond and Daytona Shores get you out of the boardwalk/amusement area that SOMETIMES can be trashy. Its a beautiful beach!

lots of places to eat at, do try Chamo's Place you will not be disappointed because it is family ran with way better service and hot food for the $$$ compared to other restaurants. nice beach honestly but could be better. beach area in front of boardwalk is packed during the day because of brand name hotels of course; less packed to the south of boardwalk, even feels safer with less junkies. food trucks on the beach are as expensive as most eateries with little selection; deep fried foods of course. lots of sirens and flashing blue and red lights around boardwalk area after sunset. lots of unhappy people around this area so beware who you poke a question at.

Nice beach. Boardwalk area was kinda sketchy and trash overflowing at all garbage cans. But the beach was nice. Nothing special.. typical tourist area.

Memories....
May 2021 • Couples
The last time we drove up and down Dayton Beach was the week of our spring break engagement, about 46 years ago. Amazing how much changes, and doesn't, in almost a half century.
One has to now exit and enter the Beach a couple times if driving its full length. And, there is certainly a tremendous amount of additional structure along the route then in the mid 1970s.
But the sand is still great, the waves keep rolling in, and one can still find stretches of relatively uncrowded activity. Though, as before, the crowded areas carry a charm of their own.
One pleasant surprise:
As we were exiting the first stretch of the Beach we'd traveled up and back, we were approached by the supervisor of the entrance booths along Daytona Beach. Noticing our Indiana license plates, and being a former Hoosier himself, we ended up in a pleasant and informative conversation. Thanks to his suggestion, we ended up having brunch at a wonderful diner, at the end of a pier,out in the ocean; with great food, and an even greater view. Many thanks.

Driving on the Beach Rocks
Jul 2021
Daytona Beach is my family’s favorite beach hands-down. You really cannot beat the freedom to drive your car onto the beach. The $20 a day for beach parking is well worth it to avoid dragging your gear through the sand, next year we plan on buying an annual pass for unlimited entry. Once on the beach you have the assurance of competent lifeguards nearby, the convenience of food trucks and ice cream trucks selling snacks and you are just a quick walk away from downtown shops and restaurants. We parked earlier in the day on the beach, locked our car and walked to Crabby’s Oceanside for a delicious patio lunch during our beach day. Best yet, I can lock my valuables inside my car when I head down to the water, a huge plus for me because I always worry about leaving unattended bags on the beach while swimming. Highly recommend this beach for the convince, value and fun.

The Beach at Daytona Beach is an interesting beach to say the least. Sand is pristine and the ocean is what you expect. Cars are allowed to roam the beach and have their own dedicated beach lanes. Jolly Chriss.
