|About these ratings|
To get a taste of why Daytona used to call itself the "World's Most Famous Beach," head to the Main Street Pier. According to one TripAdvisor user, “The sand is good -- white and clean -- and the water itself is clean, shallow and free of shells and that sort of thing." Located near the middle of the peninsula, you'll find a restaurant, fishing spots, and shops. Continue beyond the pier to find the Boardwalk and a larger variety of shops, bars and restaurants. The beach is open 24 hours a day, but driving hours are limited to sunrise to sunset between November and April, and between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. the rest of the year.
Access to the beach is free, but you will have to shell out a few extra bucks to bring your car, an expense that many recent visitors are willing to pay.
