Ah, Florida, sunny and sandy and just downright sensational. It’s got a huge fanbase ranging from families to loved-up couples and no matter who you are you’ll find that there’s something Florida does especially well: beaches.

That’s right, if you want sand and surf and one heck of a suntan then Florida is the place to go, but with so much choice, how do you decide?

Easy, we’ve done the hard work for you, so you don’t have to! Welcome one and all to the top 5 beaches of Florida. 

1: Siesta Beach

Siesta Beach

Well, come on, with a name like this it’s bound to be good right? Siesta Beach is a brilliantly white sandy strip of perfection. The sand doesn’t get hot, the sea couldn’t look much bluer and there’s an Instagram opportunity at every turn. 

2: Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach

Another promising name which certainly delivers. Clearwater Beach has been named one of the top American beaches of 2018 recently and it’s more than apparent as to why. The sand is astonishingly white and the warm shallow water is ideal for family fun. You can also hire a lounger, grab a drink and happily settle in for a good old snooze amid the gentle breeze. Perfection right?

3: Pass-a-Grille

Pass-a-Grille Beach

This charming little beach has the soft white sand and beautiful blue water you will come to expect of Florida, and it’s also one of the quieter ones too, nudging up against the old historic town of Pass-a-Grille. If you're after the beauty of Florida beaches without the business then this might just be the one for you!

4: Daytona Beach

Daytona Beach

Daytona is a wonderful place for families and you’ll find plenty of beachside activities to make your visit extra awesome. From learning to surf or just sitting pretty and admiring the view, this stretch of sand has grown in popularity over the years for its sheer diversity of things to do! There’s a lagoon park only a stone’s throw away and of course the ever-popular International Speedway.

5: Miami Beach (South Beach)

Miami Beach

We couldn’t very well miss Miami Beach from this now, could we? Potentially one of the most well-known locations in Florida and synonymous with the rich and famous, this beach is a jaw-dropper, with sparkling blue waters that lap against the white shore and a distinct party vibe to the place. If you’re looking for a beachside beer, some music and a lot of fun then this is probably the one for you. 

These are but 5 and we bet some of your favourites didn’t make the list! Let us know why yours deserves a place and don’t forget, we’ve got plenty of Florida villas just in case you fancy a jaunt yourself!
