From Palm Beach to Key West, its oceanic coastline marries city excitement with tropical seclusion to great effect.
Fort Lauderdale, a vibrant Venetian-style place full of elegant bars, alfresco cafes, long beaches and high-end shops, is rightly famed as a superyacht hub. Moreover, near neighbour, Miami, is attractively spiked with the upbeat urban vibe of Latin America, making it even more bracing and energetic. Further south, the glittering archipelago of the Florida Keys brings welcome release from the urban bustle. Strung out among the crystal diving waters of the northern Caribbean, these famous islands offer truly world-class fishing and an infectiously laid-back festival atmosphere.
