Past the towers of downtown Miami and the café-lined streets of Coconut Grove sits a tiny bridge leading to the lush 20- acre privat island resort of Grove Isle Hotel & Spa. Oversize palms, canopied beds, adults- only beaches and the Bali-inspired spa will make you forget city life. But here you can still marvel at the urban views of twinkling lights over Biscayne Bay — while you dine at the Gibraltar on brandy-infused lobster bisque.
Need an easy weekend getaway or family vacation? These Florida islands are unique hidden gems and close to home — but still deliver a true tropical experience. Take a look at these unexpected coastlines, private island resorts and secret beaches in Florida and see if you can find a spot for your towel — just try not to let the word get out too much.
