The beaches were nice. Water was relatively clear for being on the Atlantic side. The only down side was there was sea butterfly everywhere (which is like fiberglass in the ocean) it gets caught in your swim suit and pokes you like tiny splinters. We were told they often come to shore when there’s a hurricane near by, which there was as it was during hurricane Florence which was north of us.

Perfect place for enjoying the long stretch of fine white sand and waves —walking the beach is great here. Perfect for jumping, body surfing and boogie boarding. In the off-season, which September is a part of, you get a whole lot of beach and waves to yourself and a very reasonable, if not light volume of tourists and visitors. The summer weather is still here, too. If you’d like, you can take your car out and drive a specific track on the beach, slowly, and in sections, but fun any how!
We enjoyed a warm day of 78 to 80-degree temps, mostly sunny with a couple of sprinkles that were light but gave us a lovely rainbow to enjoy! There are diving birds, mostly pelicans I think, that are going straight down into the water head-first catching fish. They’re fun to watch! The ocean has a strong undertow so be careful going too far out in the ocean, but near shore it’s a fun to dive under and jump over waves.
Great place for a family beach vacation or romantic getaway. Plenty to do, too.

The beach had lots of people on it and the water was warm but not a wave to be seen. We noticed the beach is very popular with bike rider too.

We had planned for 3 months fir this vacation. As growing up in FL and visiting Daytona very often. Really thought it would had been sorta of close to not have changed. Oh boy was I wrong! We stayed at a beautiful well kept cleaned hotel on the beach. The PROBLEM. "rif"raft" money beggers drug deals that took place about 12 feet from where we were standing to cross the street even at the Vlushua mall approaching us for money. Restaurants dollar generals wings just Everywhere!!!!! Why does Daytona Beach government take care of this???¿? It was harassment and totally frightening at times.clean your streets up Daytona Beach!
