In the footsteps of the conquistadors in Ponce Inlet

It's been more than 500 years since the Spanish conquistadors first trawled up the coastline of Florida and happened upon the natural harbor of Ponce Inlet. Today, the place has grown into a thriving small town on the edge of Daytona Beach, where fishing jetties and bobbing boats, looming lighthouses and salt-washed beaches all ring around charming Ponce Inlet vacation rentals between the Atlantic shores and the sand dunes. With fascinating marine parks, a welcoming local crowd, and some enticing oceanside grills, it's the perfect place to while away a vacation in the Sunshine State.

Things to do

Ponce Inlet Lighthouse stands tall and proud

No trip to Ponce Inlet could possibly be complete without at least a quick trip to see its most iconic attraction: The Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse. This towering structure was first raised in 1887, and hails in as the 2nd-highest in the entire United States. It's painted in red hues and has an on-site museum in its erstwhile living quarters. Just down the road is the Marine Science Center, where the pools of rare sea turtles are certainly the piece de resistance, while Ponce Inlet Jetty is the place to people watch and wax down the surf board.

Activities

Enjoy the ocean and Spanish history in Ponce Inlet

If you're lucky enough to have bagged a Ponce Inlet vacation rental close to the beaches or amidst the undulating dunes, then you'll be perfectly placed to enjoy this town's most defining attraction: the sea. As the Atlantic crashes against the shore, it offers up opportunities for sports fishing, manatee spotting, and even swimming with dolphins. Back on dry land, it's possible to devour Caribbean-style seafood in the surf shacks, stroll the rickety timber jetties, and unravel tales of brave Spanish conquistadors in the local history museums.

Weather

Year-round sun in Ponce Inlet

When winter arrives, you can still expect to find the salt-washed beaches and white-sand dunes of Ponce Inlet doused in sun. In fact, the fall and winter months between November and April are some of the best here, promising cool breezes and long days of reliable warmth all along the coast. Spring time is another top slot to visit, long before the humid summer heat sets in around June, causing soaring mercury levels and balmy evenings.

Natural features

Atlantic beaches and Floridian creeks abound

Ponce Inlet marks the point where the winding, wiggling courses of the Halifax River finally open out into the wide Atlantic blue. The whole place is cut through by countless waterways and channels, with many Ponce Inlet vacation rentals spilling down to the banks and shores. Beaches are the main draw on the eastern haunch of the town, shimmering and shining like strands of white ribbon as surfers and boaters conquer the oncoming swells. A little to the east and the Tiger Bay State Forest takes over the land, complete with marshes stalked by alligators and trees topped with eagle hawks.
