We combed the sands from coast to coast to seek out the beaches with hot lifeguards, killer waves, and sexy sunbathers—the trifecta of summer! Check out our list and start planning your fun in the sun.
Welcome to the hottest spot in Florida, where the bikini is the suit of choice, and tousled hair is a trademark of the modelesque residents. Stop by the palm tree-speckled Lummus Park along Ocean Drive, famous for topless tanners. Although technically illegal, the law tends to look the other away. Seeking more exposure? Drive 30 minutes north to the clothing-optional Haulover Beach. Need a gut-busting tune up before you strip down? Try the Healthy Sweaty Beach Boot Camp workout at the W South Beach. And once you get your summer fix make plans to return next winter: the annual Model Beach Volleyball Tournament takes place in SoBe every February.
