Volusia County motion against SOB complaint

The beaches of the Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach areas offer breathtaking beauty and water-related fun! At low tide, the beach is up to 500 feet wide.

It's easy to see why our beaches are considered among the best in the world. Whether your day at the beach is to relax and read a book, cast a line into the surf, build sand castles with the children, or cruise along the shoreline with the top down, Volusia County beaches can accommodate your desired experience.
