Perched between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach along the scenic A1A River and the River to Sea Preserve, Palm Coast, located in Flagler County, offers a perfect mix of world-class golf resorts and lush nature preserves.
Nearby marshlands and estuaries in Palm Coast harbor rare and endangered birds along Florida's Great Birding Trail, such as the roseate spoonbill, wood stork, great blue heron and osprey. Dolphins play in the wake of passing boats and manatees herd in the waterway during spring and summer.
Flagler Beach is considered by many as Florida's finest beach for natural, unspoiled beauty. There are more than 19 miles of uncrowded cinnamon colored pet friendly sand beaches with plenty of room for sports, fishing or just relaxing in the sun. The vibe is low-key and laid-back. You are more likely to see dolphins and turtles than rowdy spring breakers, and entertainment comes in the form of the colorful characters who populate the town.
Palm Coast is encircled by other communities - Flagler Beach, Beverly Beach, Bunnell and Marineland. There is a lot to explore. The city is surrounded by more than 40 parks and preserves and in 90+ miles of trails for hiking, biking, kayaking, bird watching, fishing, boating, etc. Palm Coast offers a collection of spectacular golf courses. Even one that plays directly alongside the Atlantic Ocean. Tennis is another favorite, with professional tournaments playing several times throughout the year. The city hosts seafood and local agricultural festivals. The intra-coastal waterway, bisecting the eastern portion of Palm Coast, is navigable from Miami to the St. Lawrence Seaway. The Atlantic Ocean is accessed at Ponce Inlet to the south or at St. Augustine to the north.
Palm Coast is situated on 26 miles of saltwater canals and 53 miles of freshwater canals and steps away from the Intracoastal Waterway ad the pristine Atlantic Ocean beaches. Lush native trees and plants along the parkways are reminiscent of "old Florida".
