Beach season is almost upon us, my friends. Have you started your intense diet and workout regimen yet? No? Yeah, me either. It’s not quite bikini weather, so I don’t feel the sense of urgency. Plenty of time! Before you start to shed your winter weight, maybe you should decide where you want to go this summer. Once again, Lonely Planet to the rescue as it details some of South Florida’s best hidden beaches.

Possibly the best known beaches in South Florida are in Miami, and these beaches are places to see and be seen (and believe me…you will see a LOT). But if you want something a little less ostentatious and a little more…intimate…here is Lonely Planet‘s roundup of South Florida’s hidden gems.
