  1. Siesta Keys, Sarasota: White, silky, bright, fine - there aren't enough adjectives to describe the sand and quality of the beaches here. Located in Sarasota, this West coast beach has idyllic written all over it with tranquil waters and expansive sand. 
  2. South Beach, Miami: How could we make a list of our favorite Florida beaches and not include South Beach? Understandably the most famous of all our beaches, this one has it all – beautiful waters, people watching, shopping, and all the aquatic activities you can think of.
  3. Clearwater Beach, Clearwater: Wind down with Sunsets at Pier 60, meet Winter “the celebrity dolphin” or enjoy the Caladesi Island State Park. The options are limitless at Clearwater Beach.
  4. Key West: Visit the southernmost tip of our country and you can see why this is a popular destination for everyone – not just Jimmy Buffet fans! This four miles of paradise has tons of fun things to do like snorkeling, kayaking, dolphin tours, and the highly enjoyable glass bottom boat ride
  5. New Smyrna Beach: Lest you think all of the best beaches are dotted on the west and south ends, New Smyrna Beach is nestled in the central east coast. This coastal moss-draped community gives you an inkling of the diverse ecology that Florida is blessed –with – dunes, lagoons and salt marsh and endangered species of birds, animals and much more.
So, what do you think of our top five list? Share your top beach picks with us!
