Daytona Beach

Daytona Beach at low tide is up to 500 feet wide. Spend a day at the beach relaxing in the sun. My family and I enjoyed riding bikes up and down the beach and boogey boarding the surf. We also built sandcastles, played ball and went shelling.

From May 1 through October 31, the sea turtles emerge from the surf at night to lay their eggs in nests dug into the dry sand; then they return to the sea. Two months later, about a hundred baby turtles or hatchlings emerge from each of these nests and crawl to the ocean. Volusia County has taken several steps to protect these gentle creatures. This is a great time to visit and watch this great act of nature!
