Daytona Beach, Driving on the Beach
For years, beachgoers have enjoyed a leisurely drive on the wide, hard-packed sands. Please be a responsible beach driver
by driving only in designated areas and observing the speed limit. The driving areas are designated by signs and wooden posts.
Please watch for pedestrians, sunbathers and wildlife. Parking is allowed east, or seaward, of the posts.
The beach is open to vehicles from sunrise to sunset Nov. 1 through April 30 and from 8 a.m.-7 p.m., May 1 through Oct. 31.
Volusia County offers an annual (vehicle access) pass to Volusia County residents ($20) and non-residents ($40).
Passes can be purchased at any beach ramp. Volusia County residents must present proof of residence.
Frequent beach visitors might wish to consider that the cost of an annual pass is equal to four beach
visits for County residents or eight visits for non-residents-and the rest of the year is free.
Auto access is permitted on 17 miles of Volusia County beaches.

family recreation areas and beach driving is not permitted. Beach driving is permitted in the following areas:
