Yeah, we got this straight: According to USA Today, Gulf Island Seashore and Clearwater beach among others were the winners of the “Best Florida Beach” contest.
But, do you know Florida has 1,200 miles of sandy shorelines?
And, instead of squeezing yourself next to other beachgoers on the most crowded beaches, why not pick your haul and head to your own quiet sandy paradise?
Here are some of the beaches that Floridians want to keep a secret forever.
Sunny Isles Beach
People won’t believe that some of the most concealed beaches in Florida are often in front of their plain sights, and yet they’re somehow missed. Sunny Isles is a 2 mile-long expanse of white sand sitting peacefully between Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
If you are opting for it, you will be surprised by exotic places to stay at, like Acqualina and Trump Resort for instance. For the tourists who like it rough, the facility of paddling kayak is also available. This can take them miles towards exciting mangrove swamps. Amidst shaded picnic tables and beach services, the adventure of manatees and dolphins often kicks off from here.
When the Florida locals want a beach that is vibrant but not overrun with tourists, they set out for Delray Beach located between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. This beach is often the destination for people who like to live the ‘village-by-the-sea’ life. Easily accessible from East Atlantic Avenue, Delray offers historic neighborhoods along with several boutiques, ice-cream parlors, sidewalk cafes and much more.
St. George Island
St George’s Island is a 28-mile-long shore of shimmering white sand, engulfed by tall pine trees. It’s situated on the green waters of Panama City out of the Gulf of Mexico. If you are a quiet and peace-loving person, you would especially love this beach. It has a general store, a couple of restaurants, and cottages. Tourists who travel solo also rent one of the several inns provided to explore the beach which has a wild state park as well. George’s Island is the perfect place to hang out for a week without any kind of usual seaside commotion.
Caladesi Island Beach
This Caladesi Island State Park consists of a large three miles of undeveloped beach. This Island beach is located near the city of Clearwater, to the west of Dunedin, Florida.
Because it’s a short ferry ride away from Dunedin, it’s mostly left uncrowned covered with all the tranquility wildlife has to offer. Famed researcher “Dr. Beach” (Stephen Leatherman) has often given multiple awards to Caladesi Island, one of them labeling it as, “America’s Best Beach”.
