In South Florida, life is a beach. No matter what obligations you need to fulfill, the ultimate goal is to end up on the beach without a care in your mind. The good news is that, in South Florida, ending up on the beach is highly probable. The harder part is choosing which one to end up on. If you’re planning on moving to South Florida, you could spend as much time deciding which beach to hang out on rather than actually hanging out on one.
To us at Moving Squad, every beach in South Florida is a good beach, and we could never pick a favorite. However, all the beaches in South Florida are not the same, and neither are the people who live in it. It’s the differences that make the people and the beaches so spectacular. While we can’t pick for you, we can provide you with a little guidance. From the dog-friendly to the family-friendly, from the ooh-la-la to the Shangri-la, here are some of the most-beachy keen beaches in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County.
Moving to South Florida: Crandon Park Beach (Miami Dade)
Life is more than just a beach at Crandon Park; it’s also a Family Amusement Center, a Nature Center, and a top-notch place to rent a cabana. Surrounded by a winding promenade and generously supplied with picnic tables and grills, Crandon Park is an ideal locale for throwing a party, or simply joining one. Join a really wild party at the Nature Center. Home to rare fish, exotic plants, and wildlife, the Nature Center is always by open invitation. As for the cabanas, they’re available for rent on a first-come, first-served basis. Cabanas come equipped with private showers and electricity. Renters are assigned parking spaces and exclusive picnic tables on the beach. (The beach blanket crowd will be throwing in their towels in envy).
Moving to South Florida: Juno Beach (Palm Beach)
Juno Beach is “for the dogs.” That’s not an opinion, it’s a fact. Juno Beach is one of the most dog-friendly beaches in the world. Let your furry friends off the leash at Cay Beach Park and unleash their inner puppies in a blissful frolic along the shoreline. Then take them down to one of the longest piers on the East Coast to watch the hopeful anglers reel ‘em in. The Juno Beach Pier offers 990 miles of saltwater fishing with a bait shop and snack bar as well. Just be sure that your pup doesn’t “take the bait” before you can get it on your hook. The beach is for the dogs- the sardines are for the fish.
Moving to South Florida: Hollywood Beach (Broward County)
One might say that not much has changed in Hollywood Beach since the 1920s except for the bathing suits. That person would be referring to the Broadwalk, the 1920’s era attraction that runs 2 ½ miles along the coast (named one of America’s top ten nostalgic boardwalks by USA today.) In the bigger picture, a lot has changed in Hollywood Beach since the 1920s. Namely the water sports, the paddleball, volleyball, and yoga classes, the dining options, the shopping options and the rows of inviting sunbeds. If you like your sun with a little bit of fun, this clean spacious beach is your SoFlo go-to.
Moving to South Florida: Fort Lauderdale Beach (Broward County)
It first became famous when Frankie and Annette first laid down their beach blankets on its white sand. It became infamous when spring breakers declared it a 24-hour party zone. Now that its days of infamy are behind it, Fort Lauderdale Beach has emerged as one of Broward County’s exceptional Blue Wave Beaches (and easily the chicest).
Gone are the revelers of yesteryear. Today’s Fort Lauderdale Beach boasts quaint sidewalk cafes, hip designer boutiques, celebrity chef-run restaurants, and the finest of entertainment venues. Visitors can jet-ski or snorkel in the clear blue waters, stroll along the award-winning water wall, see and be seen along the promenade, and get the new party started.
Moving to South Florida: Dania Beach (Broward County)
One thing that can be said about Dania Beach is that it doesn’t seem too concerned about keepin’ up with the Jones’. It doesn’t have a flashy Hollywood name, trendy shops or restaurants; and there’s nothing exclusive about it. But that’s what makes Dania Park special. What it lacks in glamour, it more than makes up for in the old school vibe, the laid-back atmosphere, and, the privacy.
Dania Beach is a beach where there’s enough room to park, enough room to float in the water, and more than enough room to set up a beach blanket. There are tiki huts for your pleasure and leisure, and spots for grilling and picnics right on the beach. Head to the Dania Beach Pier to take in the view, or join the anglers hoping to reel in their dinner. If you don’t catch anything, not to worry. There’s always seafood and drinks to be found at the Dania Bar and Grill. Known as “The Best Kept Secret on Dania Beach,” this bar also features live music on weekdays.
