By now, it's no secret to anyone how much I love the ocean. Being a Caribbean girl has lots to do with this ongoing love for the salty waters, but mainly it is something much more personal. It's the place where I feel most close to my own self and where I feel I'm right at the very top of the world (my own world, at least!). I recharge and reconnect with my inner self in ways that can only happen while being there. I've always been a lover of the ocean and visiting the beaches, year round, was mostly a part of my life in Puerto Rico. I had the ocean at less than a 10 minute drive and I would go there almost every week, multiple times. I often say there aren't any beaches like the ones in the Caribbean and I'm pretty sure a lot of people might agree. I didn't know what to expect from the beaches in Florida. At first, I was in complete denial. I thought I would never be able to enjoy pretty beaches like the ones in Puerto Rico. But time has proven me wrong and I have explored many beautiful beaches in Florida!
Best Beaches in Florida
These are only my favorites from the ones I've been to this past year, my first year in Florida. I still have plenty more to see! And although I wish all the beaches I've visited in Florida were as beautiful as Red Beach in Vieques Island, I must admit, I've fallen in love with a couple of beauties here in the Sunshine State that are truly a match made in heaven for me. Being that I love all things visual (of course!), I've made a list with some personal images featuring my Top 5 Beaches you must visit in Florida. The list is in no particular order and you will also find out which one of these won my heart, completely. 💛
Beach Photo Sessions
I love shooting sessions at the beach! Take a look at some of my recent photo sessions done in two different beaches located on Florida's east coast.
As always, enjoy and be inspired!
