Florida's Best Beaches
Flagler Beach is considered by many as Florida's finest beach for natural, unspoiled beauty. There is more than 19 miles of uncrowded cinnamon colored sand with plenty of room for sports, fishing or just relaxing in the sun. The vibe is low-key and laid-back. You are more likely to see dolphins and turtles than rowdy spring breakers, and entertainment comes in the form of the colorful characters who populate the town.
No hi-rise hotels, arcade games, wax museums or roller coasters
Flagler Beach Municipal Pier rents poles and sells bait, where seniors, kids and families can all be found casting a line. Free beaches and parking, low-priced admission to attractions, inexpensive, oceanfront dining and accommodations make a moderately priced family vacation a reality.
