Top Florida Beaches on the Atlantic Coast
Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park
Voted one of the top 10 beaches in the
United States, Bill Baggs Cape Florida State
Park is home to a historic lighthouse built in
1825. Lighthouse tours are available and
the view of the beach from here is
spectacular. Enjoy swimming, sunbathing, or
relax and enjoy a picnic. Fishing, biking, and
kayaking are other popular activities at Cape
Florida. Located near Key Biscayne, Florida.
Florida has almost 1200 miles of coastline
on the Atlantic Ocean and many of its finest
beaches can be found here. Florida
beaches have consistently ranked high on
lists of top beaches in America. In fact, when
most people think of Florida one of the first
images that come to mine are its beautiful,
pristine beaches. Picture fluffy, white sand,
beautiful water and Palm trees lazily rocking
back and forth as a cool breeze comes off
the Atlantic. While no two people can
probably agree on which Florida beach is
the best, here are some of our top picks on
Florida's Atlantic Coast.
Anastasia State Park
Anastasia State Park has four miles of pristine, white sandy beach. Popular activities at
Anastasia include camping, fishing, swimming, beachcombing, hiking, bird watching,
canoeing and kayaking. A full-facility campground is located in a wooded area close to the
beach. A camp store and rental shop is available in case you forgot anything at home, and
their grill offers a tasty food selection. Located near St. Augustine, Florida.
Amelia Island State Park
Amelia Island State Park is a short drive from Jacksonville, and occupies the southern tip of
Amelia Island. It is the only state park in Florida to offer horseback riding on the beach. This
beach offers tremendous scenery, great surf fishing, beautiful beaches, and maritime
forests. Located near Jacksonville, Florida.
Canaveral National Seashore
Situated on a barrier island along Florida's east coast, Canaveral National Seashore offers
24 miles of beautiful beaches. Year-round recreational activities include sunbathing,
swimming, fishing, surfing, boating, canoeing, camping, and hiking. Located between New
Smyrna Beach and Titusville, Florida.
Flagler Beach is about 20 miles north of Daytona Beach and was a finalist in the 2013
Budget Travel Magazine Coolest Small Town Contest. This thin strip of a beach town, lies
between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, and has remained much less
developed than many of the other beaches nearby. It is home to six miles of pristine sand
and a fishing pier and it's not at all uncommon to see whales or sea turtles here.
These are just some of the many wonderful beaches found on Florida's Atlantic Coast. Be
sure and check out some of these, but don't stop there, as there are many more great
beaches over on the Gulf Coast side. Start making plans to take your family to the beach
