Visit the South Beach Miami Florida

Monday, May 21, 2018
To those who know us or had been following this blog, the beach is our second home. There's something so divine about the ocean that lead us to keep coming back to Florida at least once a year.  Its because of the gorgeous beach, the white sand, blue skies, and those colorful seashells  along the shore.

On this recent trip  to Florida Keys, we only had a short two days stop over to Miami area. We didn't get to see very much of Miami, but were able to drive around downtown to South Beach.  It was super cool to see all the art deco buildings.

South Beach is a "must visit" when you come to Miami. The area is filled with hotels of all price range and a variety of shops and restaurants. The beach itself stretches on for miles and the sand is quite nice, though not as soft as some of the other beaches we have been to (such as: Destin and Tampa Bay area). Also it was quite disappointing to see that the beach was filled with seaweeds. It really spoiled the look of the beach and the enjoyment. But overall,  we still had a great time spending our afternoon by the beach.

South Beach  Miami is as iconic as Venice Beach on the West Coast. The beach is huge and has all the amenities you would expect.
There are beach chairs for rent, they cost $20/hour for beach chair and beach umbrellas.
White sand, warm ocean and  life guard safety.

South Beach is the Best Escape Anyone Can Have! (B.E.A.C.H.!)

Travel tips: 
1. Most of the main attractions in Miami Beach are within walking distance of each other --  like the Bass Museum and Wynwood Art Walls.  Take time to explore the downtown and wear sunblock and comfortable flip flops.

2. Parking can be tough especially on weekends. However, the Miami Trolley offers free transportation options serving some of the most popular parts of town.

3. Expect many more people to speak fluent Spanish than in most parts of American. Don't assume they're foreigners just because they do.

4. Wear hat, sunblock and stay hydrated while on the beach or when you go for a walk. 

5. There's plenty of restaurants to choose from if you are craving for Cuban food. I highly recommend Yuca restaurant on Lincoln road offers Nuevo Latino cuisine with a focus on modernized Cuban dishes. The location, food and service is excellent!

I was completely mesmerized by the turquoise green waters  on this side of the Atlantic Ocean.

  1. Wow love the photos! Looks so beautiful! Only downfall is the price for the umbrellas and chairs :( In Costa Rica it was $7 to $10 to rent them for the day.
