Coastal Living Magazine’s 10 Best Little Beach Towns in Florida

Posted on: October 29, 2018

Not all coastal communities are created equal, but these idyllic locales stand out from the crowd.

Each offering its own distinct character and plenty of things to do, here are some of Florida’s most charming beach towns.

#8 on the list – Vero Beach

A hidden gem nestled on the east coast of Florida, Vero Beach is a nature lover’s paradise. Think unspoiled beaches, salt water lagoons and protected wildlife refuges. With miles of biking and hiking trails, there are ample opportunities for eco-friendly adventures. Then enjoy the small-town charm in the “main street” area of Vero Beach, where you’ll find weekly gallery strolls, a vintage market, and plenty of quaint cafes.

Wondering why Vero Beach Landing on the List?

The beaches are uncrowded and windswept; scattered with seashells, shorebirds, and scenic, unobstructed views. Beach-goers here are more likely to encounter a loggerhead sea turtle hatchling, a ghost crab or watch as brown pelicans dive for their dinner. This quaint, friendly seaside town resides at the intersection of green and glamorous. Posh resorts, simple and sophisticated eateries, and one-of-a-kind boutique shops are just steps away from the ocean inspiring travelers to sip, shop, and stroll.

Hotels and resorts with rooftops no higher than swaying palm trees make the area irresistible for sun worshippers. The destination’s motto Sunrises, not High-Rises are not marketing gimmicks but a promise to all who visit this 26-mile beach paradise. Vero Beach is different from other Florida coastal towns. On the barrier island you won’t see towering high-rise hotels, t-shirt shops, neon signs or chain restaurants. What you can expect when your beach chair hits the sand – plenty of Florida sunshine without the crowds. Beyond the beaches, the area is rich in eco-excursions and top-tier cultural attractions while offering a relaxed, small-town vibe that is quintessentially Vero Beach, Florida.

Downtown Vero has experienced a rebirth of restaurants, shops and art galleries and if fast becoming one of the hottest spots in town. Visitors can enjoy monthly gallery strolls, street festivals, green and vintage markets.
