On June 5, 2012, the Daytona Beach Pier reopened and the restaurant Joe’s Crab Shack opened its doors and began serving its unique brand of seafood and casual entertainment.
Over the years, the pier has withstood the constant pounding of the Atlantic surf, fire and hurricanes, but it still stands, just as it was built in 1925. It has been known as the Ocean Pier, Keating Pier, Pier Casino, Main Street Pier and now the Daytona Beach Pier, but to most people it is simply known as “the pier” – the most recognizable landmark on Daytona Beach and source of many Daytona memories.
Pier visitors can park in the metered parking lot at Breaker’s Oceanfront Park, which is at the base of the pier. The cost is $1.25 per hour and there are two, automated payment stations which accept cash and credit cards.
Fishing is allowed on the east end pier. There is no cost to fish and fishing licenses are not required.
