The 5 Best Beaches in Florida Look Straight Out of the Caribbean

While we'd take any excuse to jet to the Caribbean islands to get our beach fix, an equally beautiful, more cost-effective option resides right in the U.S., no passport required. Though Florida may be the spring break capital of America come March, the Sunshine State boasts a cool 1350 miles of coastline on both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, leaving plenty of room for under-the-radar destinations.

As Conde Nast Traveler points out, Florida is home to countless jaw-dropping white-sand beaches, many of which give the neighboring Caribbean islands or European beaches a run for their money. Read up on the publication's picks for the best beaches in Florida below, and consider booking a flight to the sunshine state for your next beach getaway.
