Sandy beaches, glorious weather and an eclectic mix of adventure all constitute what makes a great Florida honeymoon. If you're looking for a romantic getaway in the Sunshine State, Florida is famous for having some of the best beaches in the US, all across a variety of regions.

The South Beach neighborhood of Miami, for example, is located right along the Atlantic and is well-known for its Art Deco-inspired architecture, top-notch nightlife scene and luxurious properties. If you want even more adventure, however, honeymooners will drive further down south to Key Largo, an easy island escape with beachfront activities. There's a romantic Florida honeymoon resort that's perfect for every type of couple. Read up on our favorite suites below.

The Breakers in Palm Beach

Built over 100 years ago, the Breakers in Palm Beach is still one of Florida's most elegant and opulent resorts. Couples will first want to take a Slim Aarons-inspired picture along the palm tree-lined driveway before checking into a spacious guest room. Honeymooners often splurge for a suite in the Flagler Club, which gives guests access to the entire Breakers' property, but with added perks like a dedicated concierge, complimentary breakfast and cocktail hour. (Plus, the best views of the island from its private terrace.) Newlyweds will appreciate the Renaissance-style architecture, along with the resort's four oceanfront pools, five jacuzzi hot tubs, 10 tennis courts and award-winning golf course. Even the fitness center is fabulous with its ocean views. If you need to refresh the resortwear, swing by the most iconic Lilly Pulitzer store in the world. (From $725 per night,

Baker's Cay Resort in Key Largo

A picturesque 60-mile drive from bustling downtown Miami, the closest island to the mainland in the Florida Keys is Key Largo. More relaxed than the party town of Key West, Key Largo features a stretch of resorts, including one that falls under Hilton's Curio Collection. The premium oceanfront suites provide unobstructed ocean views and watercolor sunsets enjoyed from a private balcony. A king-sized bed, wet bar, glass-enclosed Roman tub and locally sourced bath amenities make honeymooners feel like they're at the spa around the clock. Private beaches include Hammock Beach, where water sport-adoring couples can go fishing, kayaking, jet-skiing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and swimming with dolphins. Couples have plenty of options for dining, including the resort's Dock to Dish program, where they can bring back the day's catch to be prepared by the culinary team. To wind down from the day, a pampering couples' massage beneath the poolside waterfall grotto (or in the comfort of your suite) is offered by the Aveda Salon. (From $283 per night,

Nobu Hotel in Miami Beach

Blending Japanese tradition and modern luxury, the Nobu Hotel occupies one tower of the iconic Eden Roc Miami Beach. In fact, a set of gold elevators from the Eden Roc lobby provide guests exclusive access to their wing. All rooms are designed in a calming palette of silvers, blues and purples to reflect the turquoise blue water along the Atlantic. Couples won't regret splurging and staying at the Umi Suite, which boasts a wrap-around balcony with ocean views, floor-to-ceiling windows, waterfall showers and Nobu's signature bedding. If your honeymoon is all about sleeping in, dining out, and ordering room service, guests have plenty of alternatives, including Nobu and Malibu Farm. (From $405 per night,

The Ritz-Carlton in Key Biscayne

If you're looking for a no-stress getaway, this luxury Marriott property is a private and quiet island escape, just 20 minutes south of Miami Beach. By splurging on The Ritz-Carlton Suite or the Presidential Suite, you'll get oceanfront views, two bedrooms, two balconies, and club-level access, which offers culinary and drink options all day long. On the club level, you can also enjoy a glass of champagne with panoramic views of the bay, plus unique experiences like cigar rolling or mixology classes. If golfing is your thing, the Crandon Golf Course is the former home to the Royal Caribbean Golf Classic and features gorgeous 72-par courses surrounded by wildlife and saltwater lakes. You can also hit one of the 11 tennis courts (one hard and 10 soft-clay courts) at the Cliff Drysdale Tennis Center, which is the largest tennis resort of any Ritz-Carlton. After a day under the sun, there are plenty of romantic things to do on-site—including dining at one of the oceanfront restaurants lined with picturesque palm trees. (From $503 per night,

The Setai in South Beach

The Setai reaches a whole new level when it comes to romantic hotels. Choose from the modern and chic Art Deco Suites or Ocean Suites that have an east-meets-west aesthetic (think: Asian-inspired decor, black granite bathtubs, and a rainfall showerhead that might be the best hotel shower you'll ever experience). It wouldn't be a honeymoon without a visit to the hotel's Valmont Spa that has four private suites for two guests so you can enjoy your Swiss-inspired treatment in complete peace. The relaxation continues outdoors with one of the heated pools, but when you're ready to venture away from the hotel, you're in the prime location near the buzzing nightlife of South Beach. (From $373 per night,

White Elephant in Palm Beach

The newest boutique hotel in Palm Beach is located just steps away from Royal Poinciana Plaza, where high-end shopping and delicious dining options abound. The White Elephant mixes the charm of a historical landmark with modern finishes to give guests an otherworldly experience. The property is completely remodeled with fresh interiors painted in comforting neutrals, and offers suites for every type of couple. Each comes equipped with Nespresso machines, fine Italian linens, custom mattresses and L'Occitane bath products. In subtle ways, the White Elephant pays homage to its distinct Nantucket roots, including its eclectic, high-end restaurant Lola 41. (From $995 per night,

The Faena in Miami Beach

The pinnacle of luxury in Miami, Florida, The Faena offers newlyweds a unique and well-regarded hospitality experience. Couples are greeted by a sultry, custom scent in the hotel lobby, tucked to the side of a magnificent rotunda and carousel. Rooms are equipped with immaculate bedding, whirlpool bathtubs, a wet bar and modern art touches. If you truly want to splurge, however, the Penthouse Suite offers panoramic views of the city, five bedrooms, and the property's signature butler service. Other suites at the Faena are equally coveted by couples as each offers oceanfront views and views of Damien Hirst's gold-gilded mammoth. Plus, the temperature-controlled pool and nearby beach are just steps away from the magnificent work of art. (From $1,000 per night,

The Don CeSar in St. Petersburg

It's hard to miss this opulent, flamingo-pink palace nestled along the white-sand beaches of St. Pete Beach. The Don Cesar (also referred to as "The Don") is a legendary beach hotel, designated as the only historic resort on Florida's Gulf Coast. Celebrities have flocked to the property since 1928. The property offers expansive junior suites to lavish, bi-level penthouses. Each honeymoon suite at this beach resort includes city or Gulf of Mexico-facing views, plus separate bedroom and living spaces make it feel homey. Check-in, then chill out—mainly thanks to the well-trained concierge staffers. The team of professionals will help you rent a cabana at the beach, book a treatment at the wellness retreat, or snag a reservation at one of the Don's six restaurants, including the award-winning Maritana that features modern Mediterranean cuisine.
