My husband and I grew up in different coastal communities of South Florida. We cherish memories of endless shell collecting, body surfing in turquoise waters and chasing seagulls away from our picnic lunches.
We’ve traveled the world hunting shells, sea glass, and coastal castles, yet exploring the 1,350 miles of sensational seashores in the Sunshine State always surpasses our expectations. Drive your car on the packed sand In Volusia County. Sink your toes into the silky, powered crystal seashores along the Panhandle and the Emerald Coast where the kids can put their imagination to work and construct epic sandcastles. Dive in with world-class snorkeling alongside schools of tropical fish and dazzling reefs just a step off the shores in Monroe County.
Sweeping vistas, warm weather and the welcoming, sweet smell of citrus surely await, whatever your style of exploring. Whether you’re looking to hit the links, immerse yourself at an award-winning spa or the underwater world with a scuba dive, splash around at a waterpark, or you just want a quiet slice of sand a short drive away from a swampland adventure, these are the 10 best family beach resorts in Florida.
