***** There is no onsite parking available for trailers although there is a privately owned pay lot directly across the street from the Harbour Beach Resort. If you need trailer parking information, please be sure to ask about it when you book. Because the parking is so limited at the Harbour Beach Resort we can only give 1 parking pass per rental unit per night.

The location of the resort one of the best features! It is right on beach between the Atlantic Ocean and Atlantic Avenue or A1A and is close to all the Daytona Beach attractions.

It is only a 12-15 minute drive across the International Speedway Boulevard Causeway to the Daytona International Speedway, the Daytona International Airport and I-95. This unit is close to the Hospital, to the Volusia Mall and many great restaurants and fast food too. Just over the ISB Causeway is the Historic Downtown area where you will find a park that features a local farmers market every Saturday morning starting at 7am.
