About Us




There is so much more to Florida than crowded tourist attractions, mind-boggling news stories, and bad drivers. A closer look reveals sparkling gems dotting the coastline like lanterns that beckon and illuminate the lesser known destinations the locals actually beg us not to talk about!

Sorry, you locals, we’re here to give away some of coastal Florida’s best kept secrets: the best beach, the best beach bar, and the best bungalow, mom-and-pop or B&B for your visit. At Beaches, Bars and Bungalows we’re committed to supporting local, family owned businesses – no chain restaurants, no cookie cutter big name hotels. We believe that when visiting coastal Florida, much of your time is spent outside the room. We do have our standards:  Clean, cozy, and cute are at the top of the list as well as, whenever possible, within walking distance of the chosen bar or restaurant.

Our recommendations are based on personal experience and/or many hours of research as well as speaking with locals and others who have visited the destinations.

Come along – let’s go to the beach!
