While most of the country is sipping hot chocolate and mastering the art of layering, Floridians are beach bound with their bikinis and flip-flops. With average daily temperatures in the 70s and yearlong sunshine, these five Florida beaches are perfect winter getaways to escape frosty weather.

Miami Beach: Miami Beach has over fifteen miles of beautiful beaches and at the southernmost point you’ll find South Beach—home to some of the most luxurious hotels, spas, restaurants and nightclubs in the world.

Since the 1950s, Miami Beach has been a favorite resort destination for jetsetters and Hollywood’s elite. Originally attracted by the Fontainebleau, the hotel still hosts some of Magic City’s finest guests and best parties. Looking for a place to ring in 2014? Last year Travelocity named Miami Beach the #1 New Year’s Eve destination.

Siesta Key: Found on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Siesta Key is one of Sarasota’s eight islands. With sugar-white sands soft as satin, this authentic beach town has gained worldwide recognition.

Bask in tranquility within your own private piece of paradise at one of the island’s exclusive beachside bungalow rentals. Dozens of nearby golf courses and access to recreational water sports like paddle boarding, sailing and snorkeling, Siesta Key has endless activities for energetic travelers. Evenings are best-spent waterfront, enjoying fresh Gulf seafood and sunsets that will make your heart stop.

Delray Beach: If you’re looking to sample the South Florida scene but prefer a more low-key atmosphere, look no farther than Delray Beach. Considered a Blue Wave Beach by the Clean Beach Council due to its impeccable upkeep, Delray boasts two miles of public beach with all the necessary accommodations.

Delray Beach offers the complete downtown experience with a small town feel. Its heart being Atlantic Avenue, where daytime you can enjoy sidewalk cafes, boutiques, and galleries, and at night join the locals at any of The Ave’s restaurants, bars or nightclubs. Approximately thirty minutes south of Palm Beach and north of Fort Lauderdale, Delray can also serve as the perfect hub to get a sip of spring break without drinking the whole bottle.

Sanibel Island: You won’t find any snow in Sanibel but the powdery white sand sets the perfect winter setting for couples to sunbathe in serenity. Located in southwest Florida, Sanibel Island offers unspoiled elements like lush subtropical foliage and exotic wildlife. Recognized worldwide for its shell-collecting, Sanibel beaches are decorated with more than 400 varieties of colorful shells. For an unforgettable experience, stroll along the shoreline on Bowman’s Beach, ranked by U.S. News & World Report this year as one of the Top 12 Best Beaches of the World.

Key West: The southernmost tip of the United States, Key West brings Caribbean flavor to Florida in the form of rich culture and spicy seafood. The Conch Republic is famous for its Duval Street bar crawls and wild nightlife, and this time of year, Key West is more lit up than usual. The “Bight” Before Christmas offers season long celebrations from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve. Soothe your hangovers on stretches of sandy beaches and don’t leave without trying a slice of Key Lime Pie.
