Enjoy all these fun views of Flagler Beach in 360.
Many people have no idea of Florida’s natural environment. With nearly 1,770 km of beaches, the beaches in Florida will leave you speechless. Today we step onto the pink sands at Flagler Beach.
The panoramic view offers an unparalleled glimpse into the raw, untouched beauty of the natural landscape.
Is there a beach in Orlando? No, and yes! and I’ll explain; Orlando is situated in the middle of Florida’s state. Because of this, it is not a coastal city. However, the beaches of East and West Florida are nevertheless very close by. Some can be reached by car in under (one) hour.
Flagler Beach is located between Ormond Beach (one of our favorites) and St. Augustine (another favorite) on Florida’s East coast. This beach offers miles of sparkling beaches, abundant fishing, beachside shopping, waterfront dining, nature parks, and other wonders.
Flagler Beach is a seaside town with a retro vibe. Friendly locals and open-air restaurants set the tone for a laid-back evening.
Enjoy the eclectic shops, surfing, a classic fishing pier, and a six-plus-mile stretch of spectacular ocean views with free beach access at Flagler Beach.
Most of the facades in each bar are decorated with motorcycles and Harley’s. You can view the ocean from the rooftop cafes while listening to local musicians play and it’s great.
It’s summertime time in Florida.
Flagler Beach is also a beach with a very similar vibe to Daytona in the middle of its famous “biker week.”
The truth in this town, most of the people were mostly adults in their fifties.
There weren’t many youth prowling the streets of Flagler Beach on A1A. We kinda dig that… because it’s nice to enjoy less crown and less noise.
So, we walked around to see what we could find right on A1A. Honestly, this is not like south Florida. All the businesses were found in 2 minutes. The whole strip must be at least 4 blocks long. Very small beach, but charming nonetheless.
The Flager Beach Municipal Harbor and the Santa Maria del Mar Catholic Church are notable locations.
The natural beauty of the area can be seen at Bulow Creek State Park and Ormond Beach.
Visit San Jose Fishing Harbor and Briggs Drive Fishing Harbor as well.
You can go kayaking and snorkeling in the area, or enjoy the outdoors by hiking or biking on trails and taking ecological tours.
The pier is also home to a popular Flagler Beach restaurant called the Funky Pelican.
Funky Pelican is right on the Flagler Beach pier.
The endless ocean views and relaxed atmosphere make this restaurant a popular choice for both visitors and locals.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are available at the Funky Pelican. Guests can dine either inside the restaurant or on the patio. The majority of the menu options are seafood and traditional Southern comfort dishes, but the Funky Pelican also offers a variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, and burgers.
The boardwalk on both sides of the Flagler Beach Pier is a lovely place for a stroll.
Because of the pier’s popularity among locals and tourists, there is a small admission fee, and the rates vary depending on whether you are there for a walk or for fishing.
It provides a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean, the beach below, and the Flagler Beach Pier. The boardwalk also has benches for sitting and taking in the scenery – a sunrise would be lovely if you ask me!
We were drawn to the pink color of the sands. Little tiny reddish shells mixed with the sand add a picturesque and enjoyable pink tone to the beach. You’ll be tickled pink (couldn’t help it, I had to)
The sea was not as blue as it had been on other days. Of course, the tide was high, and the waves came and went with great force.
Perhaps this is why the water was blurry. Hopefully, no sargassum was discovered along the shores. Sargassum is common along the Atlantic coast, but it is more common in the peninsula’s south.
Was Flagler Beach crowded?
Not at all. The beach vibe was very quiet and laid back. We were there in July, and the water was a bit choppy with very little sandbars showing. For a Sunday day… this beach was just perfect.
Those who visit Flagler Beach enjoy the beaches, cafes, and parks.
If you’re looking for fun things to do while you’re in the area, check out Flagler Beachfront Winery or Ocean Palm Golf Course. Also worth a visits are Flagler Beach and Flagler Beach Municipal Pier. Whether you want to stay downtown or somewhere quieter, you’ll be able to find the perfect accommodations in Flagler Beach.
Miles of golden pink sand, clear blue sky, endless expanses of ocean, pelicans diving for fish, and, palm trees swaying in the breeze.That is Flagler Beach
Also, you gotta love that there are no condos on the beach.
And when you had enough of the sun, shake off the sand from your flip-flops and head to Tortugas for one of their famous cool cocktails which offers you tropical Florida paradise at its best.
