Sun and Fun - Daytona Beach Places of Interest

Listed below are some activities to consider.

1. Swimming is perhaps one of the most popular water activities enjoyed by many on the beautiful 23 mile stretch of the World's Most Famous Beach. Beaches have lifeguard-patrolled areas for swimming and picnic areas. Some beaches allow driving and free parking. There are also designated No Drive Beach areas that are ideal for families with children.

Some beach rules to be aware per the Volusia County Beach Patrol:

  • Always swim directly in front of a Lifeguard
  • 10 mph speed limit is strictly enforced. Violators will be fined $116 and up.
  • Alcohol and glass containers are not allowed.
  • Pets are not allowed on the beach except guide dogs accompanying visually impaired persons or hearing ear dogs accompanying hearing impaired persons.

2. The Ocean Deck is a great place to hang out and listen to live Reggae every night of the week. This restaurant and bar is very laid back and has great seafood, steaks and sandwiches. Dress casually and enjoy drink specials every day.

3. Lighthouse Point Park in Ponce Inlet, located at the southernmost tip of the peninsula. Swim, sunbathe and enjoy the flora and fauna. This 52-acre park features fishing, nature trails, and an observation deck and tower. Bring your fishing tackle and catch some fish out on the inlets jetty.
