Charming Ormond Beach
Residents of Plantation Bay Golf & Country Club will have the advantage of the ideal east coast location in the charming seaside village of Ormond Beach. The town has a long history of attracting upscale visitors and residents, ever since the billionaire John D. Rockefeller chose The Casements as his winter retreat to escape the cold of northern winters. Ormond Beach is a coastal town located between the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the picturesque Halifax River. Homeowners at Plantation Bay will find a first-class resort-style experience combined with the small town grace typical of a southern town.
A Traditional Main Street
Ormond Beach features an updated version of a classic downtown Main Street where residents can delight in chance meetings with neighbors at the outdoor cafes, art galleries and small shops that line the street. The area was revitalized over 20 years ago and is now the home of more than 30 businesses. The Ormond Beach Main Street shopping district is centered along Granada Boulevard and runs from A1A along the coastline to Orchard Street to the west – between the river and the beach. The Main Street area hosts a popular festival for the arts, a farmer’s market, an entertaining Riverfest and a Celtic Festival. Enjoy shops and restaurants including the shabby chic Cakery Creation bakery featuring edible works of art to Billy’s Tap Room and the Grind Gastro Pub, known for its food as well as its drinks. Find wellness treatments at the NBalance Holistic Wellness Spa.
Ormond Beach is ideal for people who love living close to the water. The town is bordered by the Halifax River to the west and the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Residents can take advantage of a quiet sandy stretch of beach without the hustle and bustle of hotels and automobile traffic. The sand contains a very high percentage of coquina shells, lending an orange tone set off by the blues of the Atlantic. The clean and peaceful beach is home to sea turtles, tropical birds and beautiful sand dunes. For excitement, boating, fishing, paddleboarding, kayaking and surfing are popular activities in the Ormond Beach area. Try parasailing thousands of feet over the sea for a special thrill. Or you can kick back, soak up the rays and do nothing at all in your little corner of paradise. You will discover a number of restaurants in town, casual beachside barbecue eateries to seafood restaurants, cafes and a Japanese steak house.
Things to Do in Ormond Beach
Get a feel for Ormond Beach highlighted with distinct echoes of Old Florida by driving the scenic Loop, a 27-mile round trip excursion from downtown Ormond Beach up to Tomoka State Park. You will pass A1A along the ocean, cross over the Halifax River and lagoon, and wind past established palm trees along the marsh. A canopy of moss covers oak trees back toward Dixie Highway. Stop off at one of the old mill sites that you will pass along the way, and enjoy the spectacular views on the way back. Return to Tomoka State Park and take advantage of canoe rentals, fishing and camping amid Florida wildlife.
