Book description:

From sophisticated South Beach to pristine island backcountry, we’ve visited every one of Florida’s nearly 400 beaches and compiled the details in this handy guide.

Arranged by region, each listing provides directions, parking, hours, facilities, fees, and allowed activities. You know we love adventure, so we give special attention to those beaches where you can hike and camp, get to only by kayak, fish and hunt for shells undisturbed for miles (yes, these place DO still exist!).

We tell you whether the beach is handicap accessible, child-friendly, pets-friendly, if lifeguards are present, and whether you can ride horses or drive on the beach. The Florida Constitution guarantees public access to every beach (below the high tide line), and we found them all!

Early reviews:

"Provides information that cannot be obtained elsewhere in one source. This is info that beach guests would like to have."--Stephen P. Leatherman, (aka “Dr. Beach”) author of America's Best Beaches

"Florida beachgoers will find this book helpful in discovering their ideal beach. The detailed information here will give tourists and residents alike the chance to see just how many wonderful beaches Florida has."--Holly Ambrose, author of 30 Eco-Trips in Florida

"Mary and Bill Burnham prove that Florida's beaches aren't just about soaking up rays. Revealing secret sweet spots throughout the Sunshine State, they've created the most detailed guide for beachgoers to ever hit the shelves. I'll keep it in my car for reference!"--Sandra Friend, author of Hiker's Guide to the Sunshine State

“The University Press of Florida celebrates the diversity of the state’s outstanding beaches in its broad-ranging series Wild Florida with the "Complete Florida Beach Guide". Written by the dynamic husband and wife team of Bill and Mary Burnham, [this] is the most definitive work of its type.”
