Map of Florida’s Beaches
With all the resources and articles available through the Internet related to the many beaches in Florida, one item always stands out as lacking: a straightforward and simple to navigate Interactive Map of Florida’s Beaches which can be used to pinpoint beaches in the state, and link visitors to additional information about these coastal destinations. For this reason, Florida Nature Guide has expended considerable time and effort to research and develop an online Map to Florida’s Natural Beaches:
View Florida Beaches in a larger map
From the Interactive Florida Beach Map featured above, visitors can zoom in on any given area of the Florida coastline for a clearer view of available natural and unspoiled beaches in the area. The map also provides users the ability to switch views from map to satellite if desired. Click on the pushpin marker displayed for more information about the beach or coastal destination of interest. A brief overview will be provided, along with a link for more information and resources available on this “Coastal Areas” section of Florida Nature Guide.
You may notice that the highly developed beaches such as Daytona Beach, South Beach, etc are not identified on this beach map. While these popular beach destinations are an important part of the “Florida Beach Experience“, they are not the focus of this site. Additionally, there is sufficient information for your research on these destinations already available.
This site is dedicated to uncovering the less known, less developed, and often unpublicized or even “secret” natural beaches along the Florida coastline. The local communities nearby often don’t have, or want commercial development, so information about these seaside destinations frequently requires hours of research. Florida Nature Guide has been developed to do this research.
Our research on the numerous natural and undeveloped public lands of Florida has provided a section related specifically to the Coastal Areas of Florida. The areas within this section, as well as the map to Florida’s beaches are divided into the common names by which they are often referred to:
- Cultural Coast
- Emerald Coast
- First Coast
- Forgotten Coast
- Gold Coast
- Lee Island Coast
- Nature Coast
- Space Coast
- Sun Coast
- Treasure Coast
We have also taken the liberty to add a couple of sections which are not referred to by a “Coast” name: “South Florida” and “Florida Keys“. These areas of the state are an important coastline destination and deserving of inclusion in our new Florida Beach Map as well.
The Florida Beach Map above displays our current prime “Old Florida” natural beach destinations and will change as we uncover more “Secret Beach Getaways” for your outdoor Florida experience. Remember that the map is interactive, so you can use the navigation buttons provided to drag, zoom or change your view as desired.
The map, as well as the pages, articles and local resources it links to, is an ongoing project and changes frequently. When updates are made to one, they are automatically included on the others, and will be visible immediately. By bookmarking this article, or the online Florida Beach Map directly, you can be sure that you will have access to the latest version when you view the page again.
As we identify valuable additional resources for your natural beach or coastal area adventure, they will usually be added to the “Area Resources” tab for the coastal section of interest. Be sure to check this tab out when planning to visit the area since only the sites, businesses or articles found to be of real benefit to the natural beach experience will be found there. Anyone having a recommendation for our research and possible inclusion can email us directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
