Cape Florida State Park
No best beach list would be complete without at least one sandy area from Florida on it and this year’s Top 10 Beaches from Dr. Beach at Florida International University goes a little further and has 3 beaches in the Sunshine State on the list.
Miami Beach may be famous, but it didn’t take the top spot. Ft. Lauderdale may be “where the boys are”, but it didn’t get a mention. Now, if you want the top beach in the nation, you have to hop a jet to San Diego, where Coronado Beach tops Dr. Beach’s list for 2012, but South Florida has a beach in the Top 10.
Forget about oil spills and algae blooms, three Florida beaches were named Friday by “Dr. Beach” to his Top 10 list of 2011 including one in South Florida.
