Daytona Beach Pier
Daytona Beach Boardwalk Area and Fishing Pier
The Daytona Beach Pier is the most recognizable landmark on Daytona Beach. Originally constructed of palm logs, it was built at the turn of the 20th century and has been the center of beach life ever since. The original pier burnt down in 1920, leading to the construction of the new, 1,000-foot long Pier Casino. The city took operational control of the pier in 2009, refurbishing it and adding a Joe’s Crab Shack in the old casino building.
Fish typically caught off the pier include Whiting, Pompano, Flounder, Trout, Sheepshead and a variety of Shark. Fishing is allowed on the east end of the pier at no cost from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm (Mar 16 to Oct 31) and 7:00 am to 5:00 pm (Nov 1 to Mar 15). No license is required.
While the pier doesn’t meet the needs of night fishing, the convenience, length, and success of anglers when it is open make it a very popular local site. Metered parking is available at the Breaker’s Oceanfront Park at the base of the pier for $1.25 per hour, or you can park at a privately-owned lot north of the pier on Ocean Avenue and Atlantic Avenue for $10.00 a day.
