South Beach is an international playground offering non-stop nightlife, unique architecture and plenty of people-watching. This is the place to see and be seen, with art deco style boutiques and hotels. When imagining the South Beach scene, think "Baywatch" with white sands and water sports. Apartments cost from $30,000.
It may have more than 47 miles of pristine beaches, but the crown jewel of Palm Beach County FL, is, without a doubt, exclusive Palm Beach - a 14-mile-long, half-mile-wide island of wealth and extravagance. In West Palm Beach apartments start at $18,000 and go up to $9 million.
The biggest dilemma when chilling on the pearly white sands in Naples is to decide which way to look. On one side are the rolling waves and on the other the gleaming mansions that make up Millionaires' Row. One of the most popular beaches at Naples Pier is in the city, on 12th Avenue South. Prices start from $10,000 for an apartment/condo.
