Public Parking in Daytona Beach

With 23 miles of Atlantic shoreline, numerous coastal parks offering convenient parking, and on-beach parking in designated zones, the Daytona Beach area - Ormond Beach, Daytona Beach, Daytona Beach Shores and Ponce Inlet -  has some of the most accessible beaches in Florida. When parking on the beach, parking is available in marked areas just west of the traffic lanes and east of the Conservation Zones. Be sure to park perpendicular to the shoreline, and for safety reasons, please do not position yourself, chairs or umbrellas between cars.

The International Speedway Blvd. beach approach at A1A will be closed from June 2024 until spring 2025 for a vehicular ramp improvement project. Pedestrian access to the beach and businesses will be available via the sidewalk on the north side of the ramp.

The iconic “World’s Most Famous Beach” sign will be temporarily removed during the renovation but will return once construction is complete.
