Anyone traveling in our sun-kissed region can get to our beaches by land, but if you want to experience the beach at its best, try it by boat. With dozens of beautiful beaches from which to choose, there are plenty of white sugar-sand destinations to tie up for the day.

Because one day at the beach is rarely enough, our shores are dotted with luxurious beachfront resorts, cozy cottages and quaint boutique hotels. Planning an overnight is a great way to add even more local flavor to your next boat trip.
