Not the best choice if you prefer beaches with fewer crowds, but the beach itself is gorgeous, with the famous packed sand. And there are plenty of shops, restaurants, and other things to do and see in the area.

This is a great beach. The sand is soft and easy to build sandcastles in. The water is warm and didn't have a undertow while we were here. The change between high and low tide are drastic, but it masks for a very gradual entrance into the ocean which worked great for our young family.

About 50 miles out from Orlando, the beaches at Daytona are like talcum powder and exceptionally clean - the fine grain allows it to compress easily, so a roadway is created to allow for parking on the beaches. This is a sight to behold with miles of cars all neatly set in rows, some of these vehicles are immense to... More

Spent the day with a drink in my hand, bum in the chair, and sand between my toes. Could not ask for more.

Daytona beach is very clean and one of the only beaches I have ever driven on. It is a beach that is used for students, families and basically everyone. On Saturdays you can go to the beach in the day time and stroll along the walkway in the evening and watch an outside concert or watch one of the attractions... More

We had never had the opportunity to have our car on the beach. This is the attraction of this beAch to us. You pay $10.00 and you drive your car onto the sandy beach. The water and beach are very clean, and it feels safe (from a crime standpoint). It's only an hour from Orlando, so it's an interesting and... More

Nice and huge beach with easy car access. You drive and park on the beach, easy access but you need to pay a fee for this.

Went to Daytona recently with the family. The beach was beautiful and clean. There weren't a ton of seashells, which made it nice for walking barefoot. The boardwalk had free entertainment that was really good. Definitely better than expected.
