Due to plenty of tourism from beaches in South Florida and famous amusement parks, a total of 87.3 million people visited Florida in 2011 making it the top travel destination in the world at the time. When planning a visit to South Florida, you are most likely curious about the beaches. With thousands of miles of pure sand and gorgeous blue waters, Florida is somewhere anyone can enjoy.
Palm Beach Island
Palm Beach is known for the famous people who live there but is also home to one of the best beaches in South Florida. This beach provides a beach goer with more than enough beach. Though this beach tends to be hard to find parking at due to the many private beaches. When you do happen to find parking, you are in for a treat. This beach is never overpacked and is only a 5-minute drive to Downtown West Palm Beach, making it a destination to check out!
Welcome to Delray Beach where the sun is always shining and the beach is incredibly beautiful. Delray is known for the dynamic environment. The town has an art district, restaurants, bars and clothing stores just a short walk away from the beach. There is always parking available along A1A which is only steps away from the beach, making this one of the top beaches in South Florida.
The Boynton Beach is a hidden gem most travelers are missing! This beach is very quiet and peaceful any time of day. Unlike most packed beaches, this beach has a playground and barbecue area. It’s a great park and beach for families and get-togethers. Though due to the small parking lot they have, I would suggest getting there early to get a space!
Lake Worth Beach
Lake Worth Beach is a very clean and convenient beach for travelers. Whether you are looking for the perfect beach day or just passing time walking the boardwalk with a beautiful ocean view, this is the beach to head to. The boardwalk has a large restaurant with indoor/outdoor seating, an ice cream shop, a pizza shop and beachwear shop. This beach is also very close to Downtown Lake Worth and is ideal for all ages.
Hollywood Beach is a very nice alternative to the extremely popular beaches in South Florida, such as Fort Lauderdale Beach or South Beach. This beach isn’t crowded with young partiers, it is more of a family friendly place. This beach has a boardwalk which offers tons of new restaurants. There is always something to do at this beach.Whether you decide to come during the day or at night, you won’t be disappointed.
