Flagler Beach, Florida is a funky little town nestled between its two famous neighbors St. Augustine and Daytona Beach. Growing up as Ocean City, Flagler Beach changed its name and became incorporated in 1925. Boasting a current population of just over 5,000, Flagler Beach has maintained the role as one of the last small beach towns, featuring 6 miles of uninterrupted ocean views and quiet family style living.
Historically referred to as “a sleepy fishing village” we are conveniently located between the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean marking our spot with an authentic wooden fishing pier. While our beautiful horizon remains unchanged the streets of Flagler are growing with life. Recently receiving an amazing streetscape upgrade we are also adding a number of killer restaurants and mom-n-pop businesses are beginning to flourish. Flagler Beach was also recently placed in the Top 15 Coolest Towns contest put on by Budget Travel Magazine. With priorities to preserve our environment and quality of life, Flagler Beach maintains it’s identity as a small town with big ideas.
