Discover and Explore: South Florida’s Beaches
Florida’s Village By The Sea: Delray Beach
South Florida, or SoFlo, is home to some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the world. South Florida offers picturesque landscapes encompassing bright blue glistening waters, soft powder-white sands and towering palm trees swaying in the wind.
I really love my little seaside village, Delray. Delray has one of the best beaches that South Florida has to offer. Delray will always hold a part of my heart as it was once home to me, so in essence, I will always hold it dear. When I lived here I enjoyed the simplicity and convenience of just being able to walk pretty much anywhere- including to grab lunch, coffee meet-ups or walks to the beach.
The parking to get to the beach can be a little challenging so just be on the lookout for an open meter. The number of people wasn’t overwhelming and we were able to easily claim our own little area to spread our beach gear out. They had a good mix of people at the beach including sweet couples, friends, and families.
There are some crustaceans, and shells so keep your eyes open for these beauties of the sea. Note, there was some seaweed that washed up on the shore, but that wasn’t a deal-breaker. The water temp was nice – just cool enough to be refreshing and just warm enough to be relaxing.
Atlantic Avenue is the go-to place for food and fun in Delray. The charming Atlantic Ave. is walking distance to the lovely Delray Beach which is widely known for its translucent turquoise waters and sugar soft sand. Atlantic Avenue has glorious preserved buildings and storefronts. The streetscape is certainly charming all lined up with these irresistible little sidewalk cafes and shops.
There is a multitude of boutique shops and restaurants which makes this a very popular area for locals and tourists alike. Downtown Delray is perfect for bites and sips. I appreciate that most days the area is not as cramped or overpopulated like some other areas in the SoFlo area.
I really love the views of Atlantic Avenue which stretches straight to the gorgeous Delray Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. The location is superb because it’s walking distance to both downtown and the beach.
Delray is a true gem to south Floria. I will always love the little seaside village of Delray. And all I have to do is just follow all of the palm trees to find my way back.
And my bucket list dreams just keep coming true!
With All My Love,
