Of all the beaches in FL, Cortez Beach is maybe our favorite! The beach is beautiful with white sand, not too crowded and the waves are the best on the gulf coast.
Cortez beach is just to the north of the very popular Coquina Beach. Parking is long the road and the beach is an easy walk. While there are new lifeguard building, there are no nearby restrooms. There are nice fishing piers where you can fish or observe.
Wednesday and Sunday market is fun full of lots of interesting gems.
