Surely, it is no surprise that Florida has stunning beaches and resorts with over 47 miles of pristine, white beaches. In the scuffle between East Coast and West Coast Florida beaches, the Travel Channel was able to discern through four weeks of voting which coast reigned supreme. The sparkling blue waters of the Atlantic Coast had an impressive 5 of the top beaches in Florida being on the East Coast and the Gulf Coast (West Coast of Florida) had a notable showing with the other 5 of the ten.
The Travel Channel is a place for “consumers to experience content that gives them access to the world, shared human connections, and engaging talent who celebrate the surprising encounters that happen around the corner and around the globe” Travel Channel is the leading travel brand and highly recognized as the authority on travel destinations.
South Floridians know that the local beaches are beautiful. When visitors come to our area, the Travel Channel recommends the Island of Palm Beach beaches as starting point. The white sandy beaches are lined with coconut trees, high-end resorts and magnificent mansions. Palm Beach features 14 miles of waterfront on the winter resort of the uber wealthy. The public access beaches are guarded by Palm Beach County lifeguards and drenched in gentle breezes and warm blue waters.
Another Palm Beach County city, Delray Beach, also made the list. Delray Beach beaches are easily accessible with over two miles of beachfront. The Clean Beaches Council designated the Delray Beaches as a “Blue Wave Beach”, for its cleanliness and beach management. The City of Delray contracts with a beach cleaning service and cabana rental company.
