Best Beaches Near Orlando


It’s funny – we’re in Florida, home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world – yet we’re in the middle of the state so we have to drive to get to them! The good news is that some great beaches are within just a one to two hour drive of us. So without further ado, here’s our latest blog on the best beaches near Orlando. Kicking off our list of the best beaches near Orlando has to be Cocoa Beach. Simply head East for one hour and you’ll arrive at what’s known by locals as the Space Coast. This beach offers up gorgeous sun-drenched sand and blue seas but it doesn’t stop there. You can also go deep sea fishing, take a kayak or airboat for an eco-tour, or visit many of the surrounding museums and historical sites. We’re so glad that Cocoa Beach is our closest beach to us because we love it so darn much!!! The next sandy shore making it into our list of the best beaches near Orlando is Daytona Beach. Daytona has an absolutely beautiful shoreline and best of all is that there’s also plenty of other things to do in the sun there. There are the music concerts – like the Bandshell Concert Series. You can catch the Daytona Tortuga’s playing ball. And every July 4th is the Coke Zero 400 Weekend where drivers race hundreds of miles (160 laps, fact fans!), and the most massive fireworks display in the state caps it off. And rounding out our list of the best beaches near Orlando is Clearwater Beach. Here you’ll find miles of white sand stretching out into a paradise that includes the warm gulf waters and hot sun! Near the beach is the Clearwater Marine Aquarium where you can say hi to Winter, their famous dolphin. You can catch the Philadelphia Phillies Spring training at Bright House Field. Or you can enjoy the Sunsets at Pier 60 Festival that’s home to great music. Thanks for checking out our list of the best beaches near Orlando. We hope this helps you figure out where you’re gonna go get your sun on next weekend!
