Get back to nature at Horseshoe Beach

Looking to ditch the fast lane and really enjoy the scenery? Then downshift and pull over into Horseshoe Beach. This laid-back beach town along Florida's scenic Nature Coast is known for its residential neighborhoods, sprawling coastline, and bounty of waterfront activities. You can stroll the area's many rocky beaches, and you'll find everything from kayak rentals to fishing charters on the calm waters of the gulf. With a Horseshoe Beach vacation rental, you'll be 1 step closer to getting out of the daily grind and into the tranquil, easy rhythm of tropical living.

A real swell time along Horseshoe Beach's coastline

The wealth of rocky coastline is one of the area's biggest draws, and you can enjoy a day of swimming or fishing along Horseshoe Beach's ample shoreline. If you're looking for a more active day on the waves, you can try your hand at kayaking or canoeing, and a number of islands just offshore offer plenty of opportunities for exploration. Keep your eyes peeled – dolphin sightings are a regular occurrence, so you may want to bring a waterproof camera, just in case you need to share the moment with your Instagram followers.

Who put the swamp in Horseshoe Beach?

A few towns over in nearby Mayo, the sprawling Steinhatchee Conservation Area features a wide array of ecosystems, including cypress swamps, woodland, and sandy hammocks. Here, you can enjoy the many hiking and biking trails, and hunting and fishing are popular, too. Up for a scenic drive? Then pack a lunch and make your way through the area's lush pine forests to Cedar Key. The Cedar Key Museum State Park offers a wealth of local history exhibits, as well as ample nature trails and birdwatching opportunities.
