Florida beaches are very different to California beaches. Beaches in the California have biggers waves due to the stronger tidal action of the Pacific Ocean. Also, the beach drops away into deep water more quicker. That is, after a short walk, a swimmer has to start swimming to stay above the water. Once in the water, a swimmer sees a lot of kelp (sea weed) which can make the sand on California beaches look dirty than the sand on Florida beaches.
Contrasting, in Florida the water is more warmer and calmer because the Atlantic ocean produces less wave action. Contrary to California, the Florida beaches slope gently into the water.
A swimmer can walk farther before having to swim. The water also has life in it – sharks. While a swimmer can encounter sharks in shallow water in both Florida and California, it happens oftener in Florida.
Similar like California beaches, Florida beaches have beautiful white sand, which is perfect for sunbathing and sand castles. However, watch out for cars when lying on Florida beaches! Where as cars are not permitted on California beaches, they are permitted on several Florida Beaches. On the one hand, the sunrise is beautiful on a Florida beach, the sunset is beautiful on a California beach.
