Now that the weather is getting warmer, I am ready to hit the beach! I live in St. Petersburg near St. Pete beach and I love it. If you love the beach and live in Florida as well, you have come to the right article. ” These 6 Florida beaches are the best in the U.S. according to Trip Advisor” St. Pete beach did not make the list, but a beach near me did.

Worst Beaches In America

Before giving you the Florida Beaches that were voted the best, I’m going to tell you about the bad. Two Florida beaches were actually voted as some of the worst beaches in the United States. Have any idea what those beaches are?

The first one is Daytona Beach. This beach was ranked as one of the worst by Wallet Genius because of the rip currents, which can get bad. Also, there are a lot of shark sightings. Lastly, in 2022 Tropical Storm Nicole caused a lot of erosion and damage.

The second is New Smyrna Beach which is known as the shark capital of the world. They have had more shark bites at the beach than anywhere else. The reason, there are a lot of baitfish near the shore which attracts the sharks to come feed.

These 6 Florida Beaches Are The Best In The U.S. According To Trip Advisor

What’s great is that one of these beaches is close to where I live in St. Petersburg. My radio station used to have our annual Wild Splashes near this beach. Any idea which beach I speak of? I like Trip Advisor because they let people decide what the best is.

According to their website, these beaches have been ranked by actual travelers. Below you will find the 6 Florida Beaches that have been ranked the best in the U.S. according to Trip Advisor. Do you agree with the travelers on Trip Advisor? Feel free to email me [email protected]

  • Clearwater Beach

    Clearwater was voted as one of the best in the United States AGAIN. 12,836 travelers have reviewed Clearwater beach! I have also been there and I love it. It’s for sure a vibe and great for spring break (if you can handle the big crowds).

    Highlighted by that view of Pier 60 leading into the Gulf of Mexico, Clearwater Beach is a highly recognizable Florida destination.

  • Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park

    Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park is located in the Florida Keys, so no wonder it made Trip Advisor’s list. I’m surprised it wasn’t ranked higher since the Keys are known to have the best beaches and attractions.

  • Fort Lauderdale Beach

    9.307 people have reviewed this beach on trip advisor. I have been here and the food options are great on this beach. I think it’s just as fun as heading down to Miami. But be careful, they do have a lot of tourist traps.
