Fun Daytona Beach Selfie Photo Ops
Daytona Beach is as iconic as it gets. Visited by 9.5 million people annually, travellers, photographers, bloggers and vloggers all come away from a visit to the original American beach with memorable, rich images. Let this list answer one of the top questions most people ask before they visit us: where can I capture the best pictures?
These are the top places around Daytona Beach where you can capture iconic photographs:
1. Daytona Beach
With 23 miles of sandy white beaches from Ormond-By-The-Sea to Ponce Inlet, there is no shortage of opportunities to find the picture-perfect spot, by car or foot. East coast sunrises, marine life and surfers make photographing Daytona Beach beach life a simple pleasure. Sunsets are equally spellbinding. With a big-sky horizon, twilight on the beach is absolutely breathtaking!
