About Ponce Inlet

Ponce Inlet is a sleepy little town at the southern tip of the barrier island that includes Daytona Beach. This is a town where you can be as active as you wish, or sit back and do nothing but enjoy the peace and beauty of your surroundings. The beaches in the Ponce Inlet area are perfect for walking, jogging, sunning and shelling.


There are no-drive beaches, so it is family/kid safe.  Ponce Inlet has some of the best backwater fishing in Florida, and anglers come from all over to enjoy both fresh and salt-water fishing. Also available in the Ponce Inlet area are sunset cruises and nature tours. The main attraction in town is the restored 175-foot, red brick Ponce de Leon Lighthouse.


Visitors can climb to the top of the lighthouse for a stunning panoramic view of the Daytona Beach area. It’s one of the few lighthouses in the country with all of the original buildings still standing. The keepers’ cottages now house museums. Ponce Inlet is conveniently located just one hour to Disney World, Cape Kennedy and St. Augustine.
