To talk about the Best Florida
Beaches is easy. The State of Florida, where I spent 15 beautiful years is
blessed by some of the Best Beaches in the United States. Being a Peninsula,
the state is surrounded by the sea on three sides.
They are, the Atlantic Ocean on the east, the Straits of Florida on the south and the Gulf of Mexico on the west. With so many thousands of miles of coast, there is no doubt that Florida is a Beach State. It carries with pride the motto of “The Sunshine State”.
