East Coast

The Atlantic coast is the place for surfing.  Cocoa Beach is about one hours drive from Highlands Reserve.  Here you will find the famous "Ron Jon Surf Shop".

Daytona Beach is an excellent day out, here you can actually drive onto the beach! The Daytona Race Circuit is also well worth a visit.  Daytona is approximately one and a half hours drive from Highlands Reserve.

Daytona Beach

West Coast

The Gulf coast beaches are our favourites with their wonderful sandy beaches and fantastic sunsets.  Clearwater, at the top of the Pinellas Suncoast has a lovely sandy beach and dolphins can often be seen playing in the port area.  St Pete's Beach is a classic wide sandy beach that stretches for three miles and offers good water sports facilities.  A little further down the coast will bring you to Sarasota.  Here you will find Lido Key, one of the best sugar-white sandy beaches, that stretches for two miles.  Clearwater and St Pete's are about two hours drive from Orlando and Sarasota is about two and half hours drive.
