Seemingly Endless Coastal Beauty

Anna Maria Island - Central W FL

Florida has 1350 miles of coastline.  

Over 1 1/2 times more than any other state in the continental United States. California comes in 2nd with a coastal length of 840 miles and Louisiana 3rd with a coastal length of 397 miles.  
Wrapping the state from Perdido Key in the extreme west of the Panhandle to Amelia Island's Fort Clinch in Northeast, Florida has some of the most popular beaches on earth. Of course, like the others not all it's coastline is sandy, but there are nearly 700 miles of sandy beaches. According to TripAdvisor (Feb/2013), three of the world's top 26 most popular beaches are in Florida. They are: Siesta Key Public Beach in Sarasota, Gulf Islands National Seashore in Pensacola and Fort De Soto Park in Tierra Verde/St. Petersburg.
