Florida beaches: Flagler Beach

I love the warm tropical sun and running my hands though the soft sand on the beach.  I love making sand castles and feeling the ocean water seep in around my toes. I love beach chairs and beach umbrellas.

Oh yes, and did I mentioned I love the beach?

Flagler Beach is located on the Atlantic Ocean roughly 20 miles north of world famous Daytona Beach. It’s much less crowded and touristy though, and much more of a small town local beach. If getting away from the hub-bub is what you’re looking for, this is your beach. It’s a little over an hour’s drive northeast of Orlando and about the same distance due south of Jacksonville.

  1. Just returned from Fla. visited the granddaughters down near Palm Beach area. So pretty but so crowded! I enjoy the ride down looking at all the billboards especially enjoy the tourist stops to see all the pretty Florida things to buy s d see the baby gators! We did see one sunning itself in a canal by the road!

    1. Me too. In talking to a few of the residents there I think they do what they can to keep the area small and quiet. I certainly hope it stays that way.
