While many visitors flock to Florida to visit famous tourist destinations, walk the hottest beaches, or be seen in the nightclubs of places like Miami or Daytona, there are still a few quiet and friendly seaside towns that are ideal for family vacations or serene, romantic getaways. Stay in one of our Flagler Beach vacation rentals for a laid-back getaway with open-air restaurants, unspoiled, family-friendly beaches, galleries, historic sights, and eclectic shops.
Flagler Beach is located right along the Atlantic Coast, 33 miles south of St. Augustine and 25 miles north of Daytona Beach. It is separated from the mainland by the Matanzas River. Whether you're traveling north or south along the scenic A1A or crossing the river on Highway 100, Flagler Beach is easy to find and access and also perfectly positioned to make traveling to several nearby destinations a breeze.
While you're staying in one of our Flagler Beach vacation rentals, discover a number of fun things to see and do that won't require driving out of town. Visit the miles of unspoiled beaches where you can sunbathe on the pristine sands or swim in the cool ocean waters. Surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing are also options for those looking to speed things up a bit.
At the end of 3rd Street, head out onto the Flagler Beach Fishing Pier and try your hand at reeling in black drum, whiting, bluefish, pompano, and redfish. Wine aficionados should visit the Flagler Beachfront Winery (located between 6th and 7th) where adults can sample delicious wines and even cool down with one of their famous wine "slushies."
Flagler Beach also offers golf courses, a number of worthwhile parks, and some historic sites like the Bulow Plantation Ruins Historic State Park, just seven miles away, and the Flagler Beach Historical Museum. And don't forget to patronize the many local seafood restaurants including the Flagler Fish Company, the Oceanside Beach Bar & Grill, and the Turtle Shack Cafe, all of which offer spectacular seaside dining.
