Going to the Beach

It wouldn’t be a Miami vacation if you didn’t spend some time on the beach. The beaches of Miami are known for their stunning ocean views, sunny skies, and of course, beautiful people, making them the perfect place to soak up some sun and scenery.

South Beach

Odds are, if you’ve heard anything about Miami, you know a little (or a lot) about our famed South Beach. Easily the most well-known beach in Miami, South Beach is a gorgeous spot dotted with the iconic pastel lifeguard stands. While you’re there, hit up Lummus Park for a friendly game of beach volleyball with the guys. There are many alfresco dining options across the street along Ocean Drive, and people-watching is a blast!

Sunny Isles Beach

If a more relaxing beach is your style, Sunny Isles Beach is one good option. It borders some of Miami’s most luxurious oceanfront residences, with two miles of public beach, a mix of hotels, and plenty of souvenir shops. While you kick back under the Miami sun, you can imagine living in one of the many multimillion-dollar skyrises bordering the sand for a sweet slice of the fantasy life before returning to reality.

On the Water

If you and the boys want to take the good times out on the water, try one of these boating and fishing favorites.

Thriller Miami

Get a one-of-a-kind view of Miami with Thriller Miami, offering several daily 45-minute speedboat tours covering the Art Deco District, Star Island, and more. Kick things up a notch on the Thriller Hurricane, a 180-degree spinner, extreme boat ride experience.

Dive into Miami Watersports

Have you ever wanted to try one of those amazing jetpacks above the Atlantic Ocean? Or how about hopping on a flyboard for a sky-high adventure? Aquajet Miami is one of the city’s premier providers of watersports rentals, also offering a variety of boats and yachts for charter. Since Miami is a watersport paradise, there are many areas and activities to check out.

Cast Your Line in the Miami Waters

If you’re hoping to come home with an epic fishing story, Miami offers plenty of opportunities to catch the big one. You can either bring your own gear and cast off from public fishing spots like the Haulover Inlet Jetty or Newport Fishing Pier, or charter a fishing boat with companies like Top Gun Fishing Charters and Outcast Sportfishing.

Light Up a Classic Cuban Cigar

There are few things quite as iconic as the image of puffing away on a luxury cigar, and Miami is the place to try your first (or fiftieth!) smoke. We’re home to some of the best cigar shops and smoke lounges in America, including favorites like the Padilla Cigar Factory, The Village Humidor, and El Titan De Bronze.
