Natural Beautiful Florida Beaches
You will want a beautiful beach that offers outstanding views. Here are our top three picks
Destin has truly amazing views of the Gulf of Mexico. The sand is white. The area is surprisingly not that crowded. Destin can have cool temperatures in the Fall, Winter and sometimes in the Spring. So you may want to consider Destin mainly for a summer destination. It’s about less than a day’s drive from Atlanta and easy to reach.
Santa Rosa Beach
Santa Rosa beach is located east of Destin. It’s surrounded by natural forests and so there is a remote feel to getting there. As we mentioned about Destin, you will want to consider the weather carefully. Santa Rosa can have colder temperatures during the Fall, Winter and sometimes into the Spring. A great thing about the Santa Rosa area is that there are other activities to do if you and your significant other tire of the beach.
Siesta Key is located South of Tampa. What makes this place amazing is its orientation to the sun. Because Siesta Key is a long stretch of land that points North and way to the South you will have gorgeous sunsets. The sunset from the Gulf of Mexico washes the entire key in sun rays. This may be one of the most beautiful places in Florida for sunset watching.
Key West is a long hike to get there. But it’s remote feel and unique culture can make a trip to the Keys something you’ll remember for a long while.
Here is our Key West guide.
Privacy is key for a couple’s getaway to a Florida Beach. You will want to avoid beaches that have a lot of families. Also avoid the spring break beaches. Ideally if your lodging is close to the beach you will have more private time together. You can stroll on the beach together whenever you want. Sand dunes can give you some privacy. Cabanas are also helpful.
A very important tip is convenience. We think of convenience in terms of getting things you need easily and also planning ahead of time to reduce decisions.
Getting Things You Need: You will want to be on beach that has good dining close by. Driving an hour to an intimate restaurant is not really what you’re after. A resort will take care of you completely. So we recommend resorts to make everything the most convenient for you as possible.
Planning: Instead of bombarding your companion and yourself with decisions have a general plan in mind. This should be a day by day plan. Of course you will want some spontaneous moments. But having a general plan will make your time more enjoyable. Again resorts can make this easy for you.
Money Saving Tips
To save money go in the off season. For beaches in the South Florida area this means going in Summer. It’s off season because it’s hot and humid. But you’re on the beach anyway so there will be a breeze. If you go in winter the prices will be much higher.
If you can drive to your destination that may save you some bucks. If you’re driving from Atlanta to Destin, for example, you will likely save some money.
Consider renting a beach house. A beach rental gives you privacy, convenience and a great location all in one deal. Be sure to rent the beach house online. Don’t do a beach rental directly with the owner of the beach house.
