According to the Florida Public Service Commission, Florida has 663 miles of beaches, with a total Coastline of 1,197 miles. The site provides no definition of "beach."
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Florida has 567 beaches altogether with a total beach length of 1146.77 miles. The difference in numbers probably results from the EPA's definition of "beach." The EPA defines a beach as "the sandy, pebbly, or rocky shore of a body of water," and includes the coasts of lakes and rivers as beaches.
