Florida’s Gold Coast
The pages in this section of Florida Nature Guide (available from the menu above) are provided for those Florida visitors and residents who would like to explore some of the beautiful shoreline areas of the Florida Gold Coast. Those areas found to still have much of the “Old Florida“, undeveloped and natural character will be featured in these pages and links.
Only the websites and resources which our research has found to provide clear, concise, and helpful information to enhance your outdoor experience in the natural, “unspoiled” Florida coastline areas will be provided here. The beaches featured in the pages under the “Gold Coast” tab are seldom the “famous” seaside destinations, but rather; those “Secret” and “Hidden” beaches which are often known only to the local residents or “insiders”.
The very nature of being an “Undevelped and Unspoiled Beach” means that there is little or no commercial development of the area. Without commercial advertising interests, many areas remain a closely guarded secret and offer some of the best natural beach and shoreline adventures Florida has to offer.
Often, these coastal areas are somewhat “off the beaten track“, and most of the visitors encountered are those who have found these “beach getaways” through much research and beach hunting. That is where Florida Nature Guide comes in; providing the research to provide you with choices when seeking memorable Florida coastal experiences in the “Natural Florida“
Be sure to review our Gold Coast “History” page for an overview of the geographic area, its background and the reason for the name.
