Hidden Coastlines is published quarterly by season and distributed FREE throughout the coastal and rural communities fof the Pure Water Wilderness region, a pristine 100+ mile swath of Florida's north Gulf Coast, from Cedar Key to Keaton Beach.

Pure Water Wilderness, the Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy Tourist Development Board, has recently taken over the publication of Hidden Coastlines Community Magazine. We are very fortunate to have founder and long time editor, Jane Connors, staying on as editor and working with the Pure Water Wilderness Editorial Committee.

This amazing section of coastline, while “hidden” from the casual visitor by its delightful lack of easy access, offers a diversity of water and land adventures, with a subtle and pristine beauty unmatched by the bright glitter of fashionable beaches.

Within the pages of Hidden Coastlines read about the natural wonders of this region: rivers, springs, wildlife refuges, parks and island beaches. We focus on nature-based activities and destinations, with stories and columns by local writers on gardening, outdoor activities, local wildlife, and health. We also love to feature local history, personalities, businesses and events. Are stories are carefully researched and written.

Look for Hidden Coastlines at gas stations, motels, convenience stores, markets, medical or professional waiting rooms and restaurants in Cedar Key, Chiefland, Fanning Springs, Trenton, Old Town, Suwannee, Cross City, Horseshoe Beach and Steinhatchee.

Most community magazines serve smaller communities within large urban centers. However, the Hidden Coast is a remote and untouched paradise. Strung out like colorful assorted beads on a string, our small communities are isolated from each other by distance, but share some underlying common bonds, both obvious and subtle -- and some fascinating differences. Each of the coastal communities -- Cedar Key, Suwannee, Horseshoe Beach and Steinhatchee -- all so varied in appearance and flavor, belong to the same shallow, low-impact coastline, and share the same passion for water activities and nature. We hope that within the pages of Hidden Coastlines you will find entertainment and information, and a wider awareness of this wonderful place which is North Florida's Hidden Coast.
