South Beach Outdoor Attractions

Do you love the outdoors? South Beach offers it all: perfect weather, plentiful parks and pristine beaches all within the Miami Art Deco District. There’s no better place to experience an abundance of culture, energy and sunshine. Here are the South Beach outdoor attractions you can’t miss.

The Beach

You’ll probably recognize this iconic beach and its vibrant lifeguard tower as the backdrop of popular movies and television shows. South Beach stretches over two miles from Ocean Drive and 5th Street to 21st and Collins. No matter what time of year, the beach is always boisterous with a mix of Miami locals and visitors. Walk the soft, sandy shoreline, take a dip in the Atlantic or lay down a blanket and listen to the waves roll in.

Miami Beach Marina

With 400 boat slips accommodating vessels as large as 250 feet, Miami Beach Marina is a boater’s paradise. Visit the marina to rent, buy or simply admire hundreds of sailboats, catamarans, you name it. Just a mile from the Atlantic Ocean, Miami Beach Marina is your one stop shop to embark on a scuba adventure, rent watersport equipment, charter a fishing boat or hire a water taxi.

Lummus Park

This waterfront park hosts a myriad of activities from beach volleyball to cycling. This popular tourist destination sits within walking distance from Ocean Drive. Stroll, bike or rollerblade along the paved multi-use paths or take to the clear blue water. Bring a stand up paddleboard or an ocean kayak for ultimate fun in the surf.

Flamingo Park

This 36-acre family-friendly park has something for everyone. Athletes, take your pick from just about every sport under the sun: swimming, baseball, basketball, handball, racquetball, soccer, softball, tennis, track and football. On top of all that, kids will enjoy the state-of-the-art playground equipment, which includes a rock climbing wall. What’s more, the spacious area has two “bark parks” for your four-legged family members.

Miami Beach Botanical Garden

Rich with art, culture and of course nature, the Miami Beach Botanical Garden whisks visitors away from the bustle of urban Miami. The garden features plenty of ponds and beautiful subtropical flowers, all intended to inspire. Walk among rows of palms, flowering trees, an intricate Japanese garden, and don’t forget to stop to smell the orchids.

South Pointe Park

South Beach has no shortage of waterfront parks, and South Pointe Park is no exception. South Pointe offers beach access, picnic areas, a running and bicycling path, playground, dog park and fishing pier. The 17-acre park is known for its gorgeous sunsets, so cast a line off the pier and relax as you watch the sun set under the Atlantic.
