Known as Florida's First Coast, Northeast Florida is home to some of the world's finest golf courses, and of course some of the finest sand beaches worldwide. Take your pick from over 75 miles of coastline, many coastal state parks, the World Golf Hall of Fame, or the same courses played by THE PLAYERS Championship, PGA and Champions Tour.



Ormond Beach and surrounding Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach offer breathtaking beauty and water related fun! At low tide, the beach is up to 500 feet wide. It's easy to see why our beaches are considered among the best in the world. Whether your day at the beach is to relax and read a book, cast a line into the surf, build sand castles with the children, or cruise along the shoreline with the top down, Volusia County beaches can accommodate your desired experience.

Driving on the beaches of the Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach areas is a Volusia County tradition dating back to the early days of the automobile. For years, beachgoers have enjoyed a leisurely drive on the wide, hard-packed sands. The beach is open to vehicles from sunrise to sunset Nov. 1 through April 30, and from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. May 1 through Oct. 31. There is a year-round $10 per day per vehicle access fee to drive on the beach; this includes one same-day re-entry. Volusia County residents are allowed free access to the beach Dec. 1 through Jan. 31.
