TIDES, SAND AND SWIMMING
Every beach along this coast has its own characteristics (and fans who claim theirs is 'the best'). Coquina rock formations at the shoreline are a feature of many beaches, which in some places lessens their suitability for swimming. To decide for yourself, visit at low tide. In some spots, you might prefer to wear beach shoes - perhaps a good idea as well for any intrepid, rock-climbing children.
ACCESS AND PARKING
While many rentals, clubs and resorts offer unparalleled beach access, there are some great public access spots in Palm Coast. Particularly recommended are Washington Oaks Gardens State Park
