Holidays in Daytona Beach

Home to white sand and racing cars

Daytona Beach is so much more, and a holiday destination in its own right. Known for its boardwalk and pier with numerous arcades, as well as the renowned Speedway NASCAR races in February, Daytona is well worth a visit for any car enthusiast.

This stunning 23-mile-long pristine stretch of white-sand beach can be discovered with just a one-hour drive from Orlando and the theme parks, and offers an altogether different experience.
