Floridas Atlantic Coast

The Atlantic Coast of Florida has some very nice beaches with moderately good surf.

Most of Floridas Atlantic Coast beaches, especially those near Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Daytona and Jacksonville, tend to be commercialized for tourism. They offer plenty of high-rise hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions and entertainment directed towards the beach and fun loving tourists. The beaches near Saint Augustine and Melborne are a bit less commercial and tend to attract more family vacationers and local tourists.

Daytona Beach
is known as a spring break destination. It is all about sunshine, parties and people looking for a good time. The beach area is 37 km. (23 miles) long and historically known for having hard packed sand that allows cars and trucks to drive on it (in designated areas) and thus made it a metropolis for motor sport.

New Smyrna Beach enjoys the prestige of being the second oldest city in North America and offers visitors many historical legends and artifacts to prove it. The star attraction of New Smyrna Beach is its 20 km. (13 miles) stretch of white sandy beach, offering some of the finest waves for surfers on the Atlantic coast. Smyrna Beach is also known as an ideal destination for bird watching, boating and fishing.

Port Saint Lucie
is a recreation-rich area that is particular appealing to water-sports and golf enthusiasts. The city is home to PGA village as well as a large selection of other golf courses, both private and public. Guests to the area will find both inland and deep-sea fishing to be excellent. Boating, sailing, scuba diving and surfing are also readily available. Located in Palm Beach County, Boynton Beach is one of the country's fastest growing areas. The area has a wide variety of golf courses and is quickly becoming a golf lover's paradise.

Palm Beach is the place to come to if you want to see how the other half lives, with chic resorts and upscale boutiques. For more reasonable prices (but still higher than much of Florida), head over to West Palm Beach, just across the water from Palm Beach. With its palm tree-lined streets, scenic waterfront views, quaint shopping areas, historic neighborhoods, and year-round outdoor festivals, West Palm Beach is a little slice of Paradise.

Boca Raton is a luxurious resort community in South Florida, reserved for people willing to pay extra to enjoy its offerings. Pompano Beach is a classic Florida beach town and a great place for a family holiday. Beachside activities are very popular in Pompano Beach, with boating, beach volleyball, swimming, diving, and more taking up most of everyone's time. Other attractions include visiting the Pompano Pier, which extends over 1,000 feet into the Atlantic Ocean.

Fort Lauderdale is regarded as a great holiday spot for visitors of all ages, and offers a diverse range of attractions. Hollywood, Florida attractions include the Anna Kolb Nature Center; a remarkable mangrove eco-system that invites you to explore its 1,500 acre world by paddle, bike or foot.

Miami Beach lies on the island between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean and as such, there are lovely breezes that help alleviate the south Florida heat and humidity. The beach area is famous for many things, among them its Art Deco District in South Beach, where one can see hundreds buildings in the famous architectural style of the 1920s through to the 1950s. A huge area for entertainment, Miami Beach is a popular destination for toursists and locals that are seeking out nightclubs, trendy restaurants, and non-stop parties.
