Daytona Beach hosts over 20 miles of white beaches with turquoise waters. You can find arcades and amusement for kids up and down the shore.

Situated on the eastern seaboard, New Smyrna gets all of the wave action from the Atlantic, making it a perfect place for surfers and boogie boarders.

Flagler Beach

Just a bit past New Smyrna you’ll find Flagler Beach, between Daytona and Saint Augustine. You’ll be able to surf here too, but you’ll find fewer tourists than on New Smyrna.

Cocoa Beach

Forty-five minutes from Orlando we’ll find Cocoa Beach. Families can learn from the Ron Jon Surf School, enjoy local fishing, biking, and other watersports.  

For peace and quiet while being one with nature, you’ll have to drive about an hour and a half to Canaveral Seashore.

Clearwater Beach, although popular, is clean, calm, and relaxed for family fun. This will steer you west of Orlando, enjoying the calmer and warmer water from the Gulf of Mexico.
