Gold Coast Areas of Interest
Visitors to Florida’s Gold Coast will find the items highlighted within this “areas of interest” section helpful when exploring this unique Florida coastal area. Follow the links provided below for information related to additional destinations which are close to the beach, and will contribute to making your Gold Coast experience a memorable event.
|1.||The 73-acre Blowing Rocks Preserve is home to the largest exposed section of Anastasia limestone on the East Coast and provides an exciting destination for visitors to the Gold Coast. Best visited during or shortly after a storm, when seas are rough and the tides are high the waves often shoot water up to 50 feet in the air; seeming out of place in Florida.

The areas of interest found featured in this page will include not only the natural, undeveloped areas of Florida’s Gold Coast, but also unusual points of interest, events, or other items our research has uncovered which will benefit your coastal adventure. While our focus at Florida Nature Guide is primarily on the “Old Florida” natural environments and character of the state, there are many “must do” or “must see” things along the way. It is our hope to highlight a few within this section.
Be sure to explore the other sections of Florida Nature Guide for additional outdoor recreation available in Florida if your plans include travel away from the Gold Coast. We have all the Florida Coasts included in this section, but those seeking nature related activities inland will find our pages for Canoeing / Kayaking, Wildlife Viewing, Hiking & Trails, and the Natural Areas section (where links to all Florida public lands are provided) of great benefit.
