A Day On The Beach
Free Surf Chairs: You can enjoy Volusia County beaches even when you travel in a wheelchair. If you cannot walk or your car has a handicapped ID, ask a Beach Patrol member for a Surf Chair (all-terrain wheel chair). Surf Chairs are designed for safe, comfortable travel in surf and soft sand. For more information, click here: Beach Information for the Disabled. Surf Chairs are available for free at these Volusia County Lifeguard Stations and Parks:
- 301 Cardinal Blvd., Ormond Beach
- 11 South Ocean Ave., (Main Street), Daytona Beach
- Dunlawton Avenue, Daytona Beach
- Lighthouse Point Park, Ponce Inlet
- Flagler Avenue, New Smyrna Beach
- Frank Rendon Park, 2705 Atlantic Ave., Daytona Beach Shores
- Tom Renick Park, 1575 Oceanshore Blvd., Ormond-by-the-Sea
Maneuverability and Beach Wheelchairs: The soft sand of the beach may be difficult for standard wheelchairs, but vehicle-friendly areas make it easy to enjoy Daytona Beach's most popular attraction.
"I want to introduce you to Greg McNair of Beach Mobility Rentals. He's a new outfitter for powered beach wheelchairs, and he delivers to hotels, too. Great guy; should be good synergy!" Steve Deal
Restrooms: Located at select ramps and most beachside parks, including Granada Blvd. (SR 40) and the Cardinal Drive ramps, and Sun Splash Park.
