Palm Coast is just north and is another small quiet town. While the beach is not quite as open and assessable as Flagler, this area certainly has many beautiful features. There are State Parks here, numerous biking trails, shopping centers, the intercoastal waterway, golfing, nature trails and lush, wooded surroundings.
Perched along the scenic A1A River and Sea Trail, Palm Coast is a perfect mix of golf resorts and lush nature preserves. Tee off on a Jack Nicklaus-designed course or fish in the Intracoastal, indulge in a rejuvenating spa treatment or stroll through formal gardens.
Palm Coast Florida has a unique beach that is heavily populated with natural vegetation and greenery. The hardwood hammock forests provide a beautiful backdrop to the white sandy beaches and calm crystal blue waters.
You’ll still find small stretches of sand where you can sit and enjoy the atmosphere of this quiet and mostly secluded beach town.
Like much of the northeast Florida region, the sport of choice is golf.
This is a planned community situated between St. Augustine and Daytona that has a calming, tranquil appeal.
Great activities to try and nearby attractions:
•We weren’t fibbing about golf being popular here! Spend a day, or a few, playing some of the magnificent courses at Ocean Hammock Golf Club, The Grand Club Matanzas Course, Palm Coast Resort Golf Club, The Grand Club Cypress Course or the Grand Haven Golf Club.
•Gain a new appreciation for the scenery of this beautiful area at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park where you can walk nature trails, hike along the rocky beach cluttered with sand dunes and stroll some beautiful gardens.
•Want to stay in a world-class resort hotel near the beach that doesn’t really require you to go anywhere else? At Hammock Beach Resort you can golf and put-put, fish, bike, play tennis, or get pampered in the spa while the kids float along the lazy river or take rides down the waterslides.
