Beaches

Flagler Beach and surrounding area is a beach lover's delight with 19 miles of pristine coquina sand beaches, perfect for surfing the third best waves in Florida, fishing from the surf, beachcombing, swimming or just soaking up the sun. Bring your own board, or rent one to hang ten like a pro. Local surf shops offer lessons and surf camps are held each summer to teach you the basics and improve your form! Speaking of pros, Flagler Beach is home to the Tommy Tant Memorial Surf Competition each fall. So grab a board, catch a few and most of all, enjoy!

Each year from December through March, Right Whales migrate to this area to give birth and nurse their calves in warm, protected waters, before again returning north to feeding grounds off New England and Canada. Just off the coastline of Flagler Beach some Right Whales come in close to shore – sometimes within a quarter mile of the beach. Mothers can be seen with young-of-the-year calves, and juvenile whales may be seen traveling or playing. Visit the website of the Marineland Right Whale Project at www.aswh.org/whale/main.html for more information.

Beach Tips

  • Check for flags and posted signs that will alert you of the current water conditions and look for life guard stands. Swim in the area in front of them when possible.
  • Keep an eye on your little ones and make sure you have enough adult supervision for the children in your group. 
  • Make sure to pack your floaties, noodles and rafts, but be aware that they are not life-saving devices.
  • The Sunshine State is full of sunshine so please use sunblock faithfully and wear a hat.
  • Remember to stay hydrated. Bring a cooler full of water and refresh yourself frequently. 

Make the most of your Florida Beach vacation by taking care of yourself and loved ones. Take note of the above tips and enjoy Flagler Beach.
