There is no better place to enjoy the water than at the beach! The sand in between your toes as you walk along the waters edge and the lapping of the waves just does something to your senses. Orlando might be over an hour in any direction to the Ocean but you can easily find Orlando Florida Hotels on the Beach. Just know that these will be beaches at a lake and not the ocean so you will be missing the large waves. There are quite a few Orlando Hotels with a Sandy Beach.
