Best Beach Resorts in Florida

The number one reason to plan your vacation to Florida is clearly the amazing beaches.  Surrounded on water by three sides the sunshine state is home to many of the top beaches in the world. The best part of planning a vacation to Florida is that each beach has something unique to offer.  The beaches of the Panhandle and West Florida are home to soft white sand and the warm emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The beaches of Florida’s east coast offer the larger waves of the Atlantic Ocean, making for exciting surf and seashell hunting.  Along the Atlantic Coast you tend to find the more abundant beige beach sand.  South Florida is legendary for vacations and may be the most well-known choice for guests.  Here you find golden sand to match the glitz of the resorts and cities located in South Florida.   Discover the best top 10 beach resorts in Florida below.
