The Ponce Inlet Lighthouse

Ponce Inlet is a small town on the Atlantic coast of Florida named after famed Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon, who was rumored to have found the Fountain of Youth somewhere in the state of Florida. Ponce Inlet is located south of both Daytona Beach and Daytona Beach Shores. As a coastal community, it features several marinas and provides an ideal place to launch boats since the town sits at the tip of a peninsula jutting out into the Atlantic. Another advantage of Ponce Inlet is that beaches here are relatively uncrowded.

With only about 3,500 permanent residents, Ponce Inlet is one of the smaller towns in Volusia County, yet it possesses a tourist attraction visited by more than 80,000 people each year. This attraction is the Ponce de Leon Inlet Light Station.

The Lighthouse at Ponce Inlet

Everyone staying in holiday rentals in Ponce Inlet should be sure to make time to visit the lighthouse, formally known as the light station. The lighthouse was first constructed in the late 1880s when the surrounding region was actually known as the Mosquito Inlet. The lighthouse is still standing today and is considered to be one of the most well preserved lighthouses in the nation.

In addition, its 175-foot tower makes it the tallest lighthouse in the state and the second tallest in the United States. Visitors can climb up to the top to see panoramic views of the Halifax River as well as many miles of Florida coastline. It has been a National Historic Landmark since the late 1990s and is open to the public 12 months of the year.
