Daytona Beach is known for its hard-packed sand that allows people to drive on it in designated areas, which might not make for the best seaside lounging. Even so, it’s possible to find good accommodation on the beach if you know where to look.
The TravelMag hotel team compared around a dozen hotels in Daytona Beach, Florida to determine the best accommodations on the beach. Our selections were based on customer reviews, amenities, and location, while also taking into account Daytona Beach’s atypical high season. Accounting for the popularity of racing events in the winter and beautiful weather in the summer, we’ve collected three of the best year-round options in the area for beachfront accommodation.
