When you imagine yourself being at the beach, you think relaxation, rejuvenating the soul and ridding yourself of the stresses of city life, right? Unfortunately, most popular Southern Florida beaches are filled with volleyball courts, frisbee players, crowds of people and even some with WiFi—the exact opposite of peaceful. Stumbling upon a soulful sanctuary can feel like you hit the jackpot!
Luckily, the AMLI South Florida apartments are nestled around some of the best underrated beaches in the area. Grab your swimsuit and get ready to put your feet in the water, we are unveiling a few sandy secrets. Here’s the list of our favorite underrated beaches in South Florida.
Bright sand, palm trees and the clear blue ocean make this beach look like true paradise. This beach has shallow water and a big sandbar that you can walk out on that seems to go on forever. While Crandon Park is located near South Beach, it’s nowhere near as touristy. It’s a hidden gem that’s tucked away from the other crowded Miami beaches.
This secluded beach, formerly named John U Lloyd State Beach, is a calm place with a lot of green vegetation. It’s a nice place to sight see, swim, soak up the sun and watch the ships going in and out of the Port Everglades Channel. The beach at Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Parks is expansive making it easy to keep to yourself.
The next time you’re headed for the Keys, make a pit stop at the Homestead Bayfront Park. Come to relax at this quiet beach under the mangrove and palm trees that line the shoreline. The ocean view is beautiful with Key Largo in the distance. Behind the shore area is a sea-fed lagoon with a sandy beach area to relax and even take a dip.
This beautiful clean beach has warm water and a view of a lighthouse. The lighthouse is the oldest standing building in Miami-Dade County. The beach is sandy and away from crowds. You can even rent an umbrella and beach chairs to fully enjoy a relaxing day right on the ocean.
This beach lives up to its name—it’s a huge open space! The North Shore Open Space Park feels spacious and fresh; the backdrop of sea grape trees is a nice change from skyscrapers. It’s one of those hidden places in the city that makes you feel like you’re on vacation.
On the next overly hot day, when you want to take ALL your clothes off, this is the place to go. Clothing is optional at Haulover Beach which makes it perfect for no tan lines. This beach has a magnificent shoreline with bright sand and crystal blue water that extends almost 2 miles from the south side to north side. It’s a perfect spot for sunbathing, swimming, walking or just relaxing.
