Flagler Beach is a quiet town on the Palm Coast of Northeast Florida, 30 minutes north of Daytona Beach and 45 minutes south of St. Augustine. There are just under 20 miles of pristine beaches here, and few crowds. People visit the area and stay in Flagler Beach bed and breakfasts because of the beautiful natural surroundings, strong arts and culture, and outdoor recreation. Surfing is particularly popular here, for some of the biggest waves in Florida hit this stretch of the Palm Coast.
Flagler Beach may be best known for its 800′ long pier – a paradise for fishing. No matter the weather, intrepid anglers may be seen dangling their lines off the pier. If you like to fish, consider booking a room in a Flagler Beach bed and breakfast; you’ll want a big, healthy breakfast in you when you battle a big one.
If you can tear yourself away from the Pier, browse the many shops and restaurants along the waterfront, and consider a trip to the Flagler Beach Historical Museum. It provides a thorough history of the region- from the Stone Age to the present. See prehistoric bones, dehydrated astronaut food and much, much more. (more…)
