20 Best Beaches in Florida

Updated: Nov 8, 2022

A list of my favorite beaches in Florida. Split into 3 sections: the Atlantic Coast, the Gulf Coast, and the Keys.

Bahia Honda State Park

Atlantic Coast

St Augustine Beach

I fell in love the first time I set my eyes on it. It felt so home like and relaxing. Even though the day we went to the beach was an overcast day, it was still breathtaking. All the grays meshed with the slight blues in the water to create a beautiful dark landscape. When we went the beach wasn’t very crowded.

Flagler Beach

Ormond Beach

Daytona Beach

Playalinda Beach

Cocoa Beach

South Beach

Gulf Coast

Naples Pier

We went to the Naples Pier during the day trip we took from Florida City to Naples then onto Miami. It was 40 degrees the day we went so we didn’t really spend a whole lot of time at the beach, but what I did see of it was beautiful. I liked the vibes I got from the town and people who were there. I wish I could have spent more time exploring the beaches in Naples.

Point of Rocks Beach

Siesta Key Beach

Clearwater Beach

Caladesi Island State Park

St George Island State Park

T.H. Stone Memorial St Joseph Peninsula State Park

St Andrews State Park

Henderson Beach State Park

The Keys

Fort Zachary Taylor State Park (Key West)

Not only does this state park have an awesome beach area for snorkeling, there’s an old fort bunker you can explore. Fort Zachary Taylor is on the south point of Key West so the water is a mix of Atlantic and Gulf water. It is so clear it is incredible. There is a restaurant, gift shop and snorkel rental on the beach.
