(2013 - Fall/Winter Issue)


In this pristine part of Florida, lines are what tie up the boat and parks are green spaces. High rises? There aren’t any.

Surfers, swimmers and sunbathers savour the Atlantic Ocean waves that lap 30 kilometres of golden coquina beach. Watch dolphins play in the ocean or join them at Marineland Dolphin Adventure in the world’s first oceanarium, where movies and memories have been made for 75 years.

Inland, rivers and creeks spawn a wealth of seafood, provide winter homes for hundreds of bird species and the liquid byways for boating pleasure. Get closer to nature than you ever dreamed possible in an eco-friendly vegetable-oil-powered boat or propel a canoe, kayak or board through this extensive maritime environment. 

Hikers, cyclists, birdwatchers, photographers and geocachers revel in miles of trails and sights found in more than 40 parks.

Golfers are challenged on courses designed by Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson or go for location at links overlooking the ocean, paralleling the scenic Intracoastal Waterway or winding around marshes and lakes.

It’s easy to relax in Flagler yet tour the busier side of the Sunshine State, too. You’re only 56 kilometres from historic St. Augustine, 34 kilometres from the speed of Daytona and 124 kilometres from Orlando’s theme parks. Assuming you can tear yourself away from the quieter side of Florida, that is.
