How many miles of coast does Florida have?

When thinking of romance on Florida’s Historic Coast, one cannot overlook the 42 miles of pristine beaches. Florida has become synonymous with miles and miles of incredible coastline. Its beaches have soft, white sand and turquoise-blue waters.

Spots to enjoy include the Embassy Suites St. Augustine Beach Oceanfront ResortAnastasia State Park, the Guy Harvey Resort, or the beaches along the GTM Reserve. All are ideal spots for the perfect beach celebration and relaxation with a summertime atmosphere that can be experienced throughout most of the year.

The Historic Coast of Florida remains an easy-access drive destination for locals.  And, for us Canadians, there is also great air service available via Jacksonville International Airport (JAX), approximately 50 minutes north of St. Augustine and 30 minutes from Ponte Vedra, and Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB) approximately 50 minutes to the south.

All major airline carriers serve both airports of these airports. New non-stop service with Breeze Airways between Jacksonville and seven cities across the US begins in May 2023. And Air Canada began direct flights from most major Canadian cities, making Florida much more accessible.
