Palm Coast and the nearby Flagler Beach are lined with 19 miles of pristine, uncrowded cinnamon-colored beaches, practically untouched and undeveloped along the Atlantic. There is a level of tranquility on our beaches that is unheard of anywhere along the East Coast, from Maine to Miami. Here, there is no fighting for a prime spot along the sand because there is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy, read a book, take a walk or have a picnic with your family.
Additionally, views along A1A are wide open thanks to laws prohibiting development along the Eastern side of A1A. So, whether you’re taking a cruise up the ocean on a Sunday morning, or enjoying lunch at a local beachside eatery, you’ll be able to take in the vast views of the Atlantic the entire time.
More than 70 miles of fresh and saltwater canals weave through our residential areas. Just west of the Atlantic runs the Intracoastal Waterway, a stunning stretch of brackish water which offers boaters’ access to the Atlantic as well as the opportunity to stay closer to the coastline for fishing, watersports, paddleboarding, kayaking and more. Here, boaters and kayakers may explore inlets and marshland for fishing and birdwatching, as well as sightings of dolphin and manatees.
