Flagler Beach, Florida
Move cursor over the image to pause it
Since its incorporation in April 1925, Flagler Beach has grown from a sleepy fishing village to a unique seaside community while retaining much of its original charm. It is home to six miles of uncrowded beaches, many great fishing spots including the Flagler Beach Municipal Pier, restaurants with oceanfront dining, gift shops and a whole host of recreational facilities.
America’s Coolest Small Town Finalist
Flagler Beach was a finalist in the 2013 Budget Travel Magazine Coolest Small Town Contest.
“Twenty miles north of Daytona Beach on A1A, Flagler Beach couldn’t be more different from its party-hardy neighbor to the south. In fact, the area seems to attract more sea turtles and right whales than spring breakers. And it’s not hard to see why: This thin strip of a beach town, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, has remained significantly less developed than its neighbors.
The six miles of pristine sand—which boast an orange hue thanks to crushed coquina shells—are only interrupted by one fishing pier. In town, the vibe is laid back and retro, thanks to spots like the Golden Lion which offers the best fish & chips around, and High Tides at Snack Jack, a 1950s fish shack that attracts surfers with funky dishes like tuna reubens, ahi club sandwiches, and Bloody Marys.
