I stayed at a hotel right on the beach. I found the noise level awful between cars with loud mufflers, motor cycles and big trucks (construction, dump trucks, etc) going all the time day and night. There are a real lot of homeless on the...More

What really separates and makes Daytona Beach is the ability to drive and park right on the beach if that is ever taken away the lure of Daytona Beach will be gone outside the Speedway.

Wide, clean, beach. Hard packed and flat makes it perfect for walking. Most of it allows vehicles to drive on the beach, but it is expensive....$20 per day. Off season there are not many vehicles on the beach....making it very enjoyable.

Stopped by the beach en-route home, totally enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, cleanliness and fact that there were lifeguards present. A short stay but most definitely recommended, try DriveOnTheBeach, it looks fun, couldn't do it since it was a rental car.

Stayed in Daytona Beach shores where there are less hotels. The beach is always clean, nice and wide with few people. Cars go by and people do park, but there are lanes. I stay away from the boardwalk area, and spring break. I live near...More

Nice beach getaway, only an hour & 1/2 away from the Theme Parks. Clean sand with plenty of food options within walking distance. Amusement park is in disrepair & a bit of an eyesore. Hopefully there are plans to revamp it. Although nice during the...More
