Miami’s Uptown Beachtown

Discover the simple charm of Surfside

Surfside is Miami’s small beachside town. With just under 6,000 residents, it’s a tiny community packed with character. Incorporated in 1935 with the signatures of just 35 local residents, Surfside has retained its vision of a small oceanfront community focused on residents, local businesses, and tourism. Today, the quaint town welcomes you to walk and explore; the sprawling beach draws locals and visitors looking to avoid the crowd of Miami Beach; and the community center offers fun and entertainment for the whole family.

Spend a day here and you’ll find it hard not to fall in love with the unavoidable charm of this beachside retreat.

For more information, be sure to visit the Surfside Tourist Bureau.
