Hollywood, FL

“The water is turquoise, the sand is white and on a weekday it’s paradise. The weekend is super fun too as it’s filled with people sunbathing and swimming. The water is so warm you can stay in for hours.But the best part is all the wildlife you can see at the beach. Pelican’s swoop down regularly catching fish out of the water. Baby rays can be seen at times in the water swimming around and protected sea turtle nests can be found roped off all over the beach. It’s a magical place.” — Beach Day
