The town of Ponce Inlet is located on the southern tip of a beach peninsula, south of Daytona Beach and Daytona Beach Shores. Several marinas are located in Ponce Inlet, which is considered one of the area’s prime fishing spots. The area is prized by residents for its relaxed lifestyle and natural, uncrowded beaches. It has developed a reputation as a community that takes its land use regulations seriously, and one that is committed to preserving the character and lifestyle of a primarily residential haven as articulated in the town visioning statement. It strives to embrace managed growth while resisting external pressure to yield to any changes in its land use regulations that would result in the over-commercialization of this highly sought after residential barrier island community.
Historic Ponce De Leon Lighthouse Completed in 1887 and the tallest lighthouse in Florida, this majestic facility stretches 175 feet into the sky. The surrounding grounds feature historical and nautical museum, artifacts on lighthouse life, shipwrecks, a gift shop and more.
