Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Daytona Beach Shores, FL
Daytona Beach Shores is located on a small barrier island south of Daytona Beach in Volusia County, FL. Tourists and residents spend their time on the famous beach, biking along the coast, or enjoying the ocean from a boat or surfboard.
The city of Daytona Beach is split in two by the Halifax River lagoon, part of the Intracoastal Waterway, and sits on the Atlantic Ocean. It is bordered on the north by Holly Hill and Ormond Beach and on the south by Daytona Beach Shores, South Daytona and Port Orange.
Things To Do in Daytona Beach
The beach is the biggest draw, with 23 miles of sand running alongside the Atlantic Ocean.
Daytona Beach Shores
From Pickleball to Parks Daytona Beach has it all. Sometimes called “The most famous beach in the world”, the sand on the beach is so hard-packed that not only can vehicles drive on it, they can drive on it very fast. So much so that 15 land speed world records were broken there. It was a key section in the historic Daytona Beach and Road Course – a race that lead to the formation of NASCAR. The city is still home to the NASCAR headquarters to this day.
Andy Romano Beachfront Park
Within the limits of Ormond Beach to the north, this relatively new park is a four acre park located along the beach. The park offers beach access, off-beach parking, a splash pad, playground, pavilions, concessions, and restrooms.
Museum of Arts & Sciences
Further inland, on the other side of the Halifax River/Intracoastal Waterway, is the Museum of Arts & Sciences. Currently on display through 2019 is a exhibition reflecting on Florida’s position as a top sport-fishing area – Gone Fishin’. There is also a 94-seater Planetarium, celebrating the wonders of the universe and Florida’s role in space exploration.
Daytona International Speedway
Although cars can still drive on many areas of the beach during daylight hours, the beach has been closed to racecars since the last race in 1958. In 1959 the first race was held on the Daytona International Speedway, and the city secured its position as the “World Centre of Racing”.
