I lived in Central Florida for most of my life. Daytona and Cocoa Beaches were our closest beaches. They are both worth a visit. If you drive up and down the coast (A1A) you will find public parking lots that allow you access to areas that are more secluded so you can enjoy the beaches without the crowds. My favorite secluded beach is Ponce Inlet. It is by far the prettiest beach in the area.

this is where i was most all the time. if you go remember 2 thing 1 if you go in the water take 2 steps to the right every time you get hit buy a wave you dont pay attention you find your self a half mile away from where you started in less then 30 mins. 2 wear water shoes the water is not the clearest and you dont want to step on anything that might bite back

I went back in 2005 for Spring Break and it ended up being Bike Week. Totally different atmosphere and fun, but can be overwhelming if you've never been there before during that time.
The beach isn't that different than any other east coast beach, very tourist-y.

Not so great. Head south a little ways to the Canaveral National Seashore if you want to get away from the nastiness that is bad Florida development and to enjoy truly beautiful beaches, gorgeous lagoons (with manatees), hammock trails, bird sanctuaries and, plus, the space shuttle!
