Overview

From sophisticated to pristine, find the perfect beach for you!

"Provides information that cannot be obtained elsewhere in one source. This is info that beach guests would like to have."--Stephen P. Leatherman, author of America's Best Beaches

"Florida beachgoers will find this book helpful in discovering their ideal beach. The detailed information here will give tourists and residents alike the chance to see just how many wonderful beaches Florida has."--Holly Ambrose, author of 30 Eco-Trips in Florida

"Mary and Bill Burnham prove that Florida's beaches aren't just about soaking up rays. Revealing secret sweet spots throughout the Sunshine State, they've created the most detailed guide for beachgoers to ever hit the shelves. I'll keep it in my car for reference!"--Sandra Friend, author of Hiker's Guide to the Sunshine State

Florida has nearly 400 beaches--more than one for every day of the year. The Complete Florida Beach Guide is the ultimate companion for anyone planning a two-week vacation or an afternoon getaway.

Mary and Bill Burnham have visited each and every beach listed in their guide. Arranged by region, each listing provides directions, parking availability, hours, facilities (restrooms, showers, picnic shelters), fees, and contact information. They also tell you whether the beach is handicap accessible, pets are allowed, or lifeguards are present.

The Burnhams describe the condition of the sand and let you know if you'll have good luck hunting for shells. Information on nearby concessions, nature trails, nightlife, and opportunities for camping, fishing, kayaking, and beach driving is also provided. There's even a bit of natural history--how the beaches formed, what plants and wildlife you'll find--and helpful information about beach conservation and safety.

Whether your tastes run to family-friendly or clothing-optional, the Burnhams will help you find the beach that's right for you.

Travel journalists Mary and Bill Burnham are the authors of four books including Florida Keys Paddling Atlas.
