so where were the nicest beaches you found?
while we're staying in Flagler, we're planning on looking at homes all the way fr Fernandina to Melbourne. I've heard Flagler Beaches were alright.. and nice and quiet. both north and south of the flagler pier.

Ahh- you didn't mention children so assumed it was just the two of you. Of course you'll need more space. I was also going to mention Ormond Beach as another possibility. Good that you'll be there the entire month - that will give you plenty of time to visit the whole area and make wise decisions. Good luck.

Based on my list of 10 considerations, of all the beaches I saw from Amelia Island to Ponce Inlet (just south of New Smyrna Beach), I personally like the beach on the north end of Anastasia State Park the best of all. A close second place are the beaches all the way from Ocean Trace Rd (on the south end of St. Augustine Beach) then going south to the Matanza Inlet.

In My time in Flagler i never noticed any rocks in my walks north of the pier or south of the pier just miles of sandy beaches.
I dont remember Palm coast being much more than a swamp back in the mid 70's,i was there a few years ago and was amazed at the size of the place, its like an enormous suburb of nowhere aptly situated in the middle of nowhere.

Looking south from the pier=


Looking North from the pier =

The beach just north of the Flagler Beqach pier and everywhere south of the pier has no rocks. The rock formations begin just south of the Palm Coast Beaches.

I have a question about the frequency of hurricanes in the Flagler Beach area. I currently live in Costa Rica, no hurricanes here. I'm looking for a place back in the states and although I love the ocean the idea of hurricanes scares me silly. From what I've read here Flagler Beach sounds pretty good but I still worry about the hurricanes. Thanks for the info.

Hurricanes hitting the NE Florida coastline are very rare.
