Ready to spend the day in one of the beautiful beaches of South Florida? Put on your swimsuit, grab your sunscreen and be prepared to have a blast. Here is the list of our top 5 favorite beaches in South Florida you must visit.
If you are visiting Delray Beach, also known as the “Village by the Sea”, you have to spend the day at the beach. Make sure to take your little ones, as this is perhaps the most family-friendly beach in our list. The beach in Delray has a 2 mile stretch of public beachfront and has won many awards, including “Best Restored Beach.” Dip into the clear turquoise waters or relax on the white sands. You can also have fun by playing a game of beach volleyball by the water. This beach is walking distance to restaurants, bars, and shops. Stay to watch the sunset and enjoy dinner at a local seafood restaurant just minutes away from the beach.
Fall in love with the pristine waters of Deerfield Beach. This beach stretches out for about one mile and is protected by lifeguards 365 days a year. This beach earned the “Blue Wave” award for excellent water quality, cleanliness, and safety services, along with other criteria. Once there, build a sand castle with your kids or swim in the blue waters. If you want to hit the waves, surfing is permitted north of the pier. There is also a spot reserved for surfers south of tower seven. When visiting, you should also check out the recreational areas north of the pier. There, enjoy a game of beach volleyball in one of the nine volleyball courts free for public use.
Relax on the warm sands of the all-natural beach at Boca Raton. The beachfront stretches for two miles and has several lifeguard stands for your safety. This beach is usually quiet and is popular with families. If you want to go surfing here, be sure to ride the waves at the south end of the beach. If you are new to surfing and want to try out this exhilarating sport, you can check out local surf shops that offer lessons, sometimes for free. There are three city parks surrounding the beach, so take your kids to play in one of the playgrounds. You can also take your family to Red Reef Park for some fun snorkeling in the reefs as close to ten feet from the shore. After, have a barbecue and enjoy a picnic with your family.
Another one of our favorite beaches in South Florida is Hollywood Beach. Soak up the sun in the sand and splash around in the water. You can also walk, skate or rollerblade in the famous boardwalk that stretches for 2.5 miles. If you take your little ones with you, check out Charnow Park so your kids can enjoy playing in the splash fountain. Make sure to also check out the Hollywood Beach Theater, an outdoor theater where you can enjoy free entertainment just steps away from the beach. Stay for lunch or dinner and dine in one of the many waterfront restaurants. There is a wide variety of choices for all tastes.
The world-famous South Beach had to make our list of favorite beaches. The beach here has a vibrant atmosphere and is a fun place to visit at any time of the year. Join a game of beach volleyball in one of the several courts by the beach or workout in the outdoor fitness area at Lummus park, where you will find pull-up bars, sit-up benches, and much more. Later, cool off in the crystal blue waters. When you work up an appetite, there are plenty of restaurants you can choose from right across the beach. You can also grab a refreshing cocktail in one of the bars just minutes away from the sand. You are guaranteed to have a blast at South Beach.
