The folks over at Florida Beach Bar have released the results of their “Florida’s Best Beach Bar” contest. FloridaBeachBar.com is the number one guide to the best Florida beach bars. It includes beach bars that are on the beach or water and those beach bars that are just a short distance away from water. They have visited over 200 beach bars from the Panhandle to the Keys and ranked them on the site. In April, the founders sent out a call to fans of the site to vote online for Florida’s Best Beach Bar. The voting ended nearly a month ago, but the results were just released. Worth noting is that four of the Top Ten Favorite Beach Bars are right here on the Fun Coast.
Ocean Deck, Daytona Beach. The #8 listed beach bar is a Daytona Beach landmark and hot spot that has been serving up the locals & tourists for over 40 years. Walk up from the beach past the volley ball net and join the party. You’ll find a friendly crowd day and night. Enjoy live reggae music and dancing every night of the week. This two story spot literally sits right on the sand of Daytona Beach.
Inlet Harbor Restaurant, Ponce Inlet. Voted #5 in the Top Ten, Inlet Harbor is located at Ponce Inlet just south of Daytona Beach and features a colorful Caribbean and lively atmosphere. The tropical casual setting has great food and plenty of entertainment. Sit back and enjoy a cool drink while you watch boaters navigate to the docks as they come to join the party. It’s ranked Daytona’s top dinning and docking destination, and now, one of Florida’s Top 10 beach bars.
Racing’s North Turn, Ponce Inlet. The #4 listed beach bar is located in Ponce Inlet right on Daytona Beach and sits at the exact location where Daytona’s racing history began. It’s like a combination mini-racing museum and beach bar. Racing’s North Turn features a large bar, big stage, and plenty of room for dancing. Walk up from the beach and just before you step onto the bar’s large beach deck, there’s a shower area for cleaning up.
The Golden Lion Cafe, Flagler Beach. The “Lion” was number two in vote getting and also named Florida’s Best Waterside Bar. The Golden Lion Cafe is across the street from the beach and for nearly two decades they have held the distinction as Flagler Beach’s most awarded restaurant. It is our choice for Best Waterside Florida Beach Bar. This two story beach bar features clever signs and pictures and an upper deck with perfect views of the Atlantic Ocean. The staff is super friendly and adds to the perfect party atmosphere.
