A casual barrier island between the Atlantic and Intracoastal.
The atmosphere in Sunny Isles Beach is casual. The funky 50's motels and small beachfront hotels are giving way to luxury apartment towers and hotels. However, little has changed on the Newport Fishing Pier, where you can drop a line and fish from shore. For real deep-sea fishing, head to the charter boats docked on the Intracoastal Waterway at Haulover Beach Park. Across the way, a one-mile stretch of white sand and open ocean surf invites sunbathing and swimming. Oleta River State Park is a popular destination for kayaking and biking.
The Dezer Collection in Sunny Isles Beach is a unique automobile museum and event space with more than 1,200 vehicles on display including a Batmobile and cars from James Bond movies. A variety of shops and international restaurants line Collins Avenue, the main street of the area.
Sunny Isles Beach is often referred to as Florida's Riviera. It's a Miami seaside community with an international mix of residents who appreciate its many amenities.
