8 Least-Crowded, But Still Scenic Places To Visit In Florida

Anna Maria Island

Situated on Florida's Gulf Coast, Anna Maria Island boasts six miles of stunning, uncrowded beaches that don't attract the large crowds of more well-known beaches like those in Miami or Fort Lauderdale.

South Walton

There are 16 beach communities in South Walton, which together house a number of inhabitants. Because of this, the region is able to preserve 26 miles of serene beaches that don't draw as many visitors as neighboring Panama City Beach or Destin. 

Perdido Key

Situated on the state line between Florida and Alabama, Perdido Key is a barrier island inhabited by a tiny year-round population. Perdido Key has 16 miles of sandy beach that is a part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore.


Situated on the Florida Panhandle, Apalachicola is a modest fishing village with a small year-round population. This keeps tourists from overtaking the area and preserves its tranquil, laid-back vibe.

Morikami Museum 

The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, which cover 16 serene acres in Delray Beach, offer a picturesque haven away from the bustling beaches of South Florida.

Tortugas National Park

The only ways to get to Dry Tortugas National Park are by boat or seaplane, and it's 70 miles west of Key West. Only a few staff members and campers live on these little islands because there are no roads or bridges. 

Devil's Den Spring

Devil's Den is an ancient, crystal-clear spring close to the tiny hamlet of Williston that is ideal for cave exploration, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Because most visitors to Florida are unaware of this hidden beauty

Caverns State Park

Florida Caverns State Park, located just outside the tiny town of Marianna, has breathtaking natural features without the crowds. Marianna has few full-time residents and preserves a tranquil, small-town feel.
