It doesn't matter whether the sun is high in the sky or slumbering over the horizon, Miami Beach holidays pack a mighty big punch any time of day. With miles of white sand just perfect for soaking up the rays- and a jumping nightlife that has everyone from holidaymakers to superstars wanting a piece of the action, Miami Beach is nothing short of an American icon.
South Beach, or 'SoBe' to those in the know, is at the very heart of the Miami scene. Flanked by stunning Art Deco buildings and the cool bars, clubs and restaurants of Ocean Drive, it's the place both to see and be seen. Mix with the in-crowd as you strut across the sand or relax on a lounger and simply watch the mesmerising parade of tanned bodies and designer swimwear pass by. The party here never stops.
So-Be is only part of the story on Miami Beach holidays though, and there are plenty other stretches of sparkling ocean to enjoy. Surfers head to Haulover Beach for the biggest swells, while windsurfers skim the waves at Hobie. The sheltered lagoon of Matheson Hammock Park is perfect for families and snorkelers, while over at Crandon Park Beach in Key Biscayne, beach barbeques and volleyball games are played out to a soundtrack of salsa, disco and reggae music.
Neither does it matter what time of year you visit Miami Beach, because it's a year-round destination blessed with reliably warm temperatures and sunny skies. Most of the time the thermometer hovers somewhere between 25⁰C and 31⁰C, making any day a perfect one to swim in the ocean, stretch out on the sand or sip a cooling Margarita. Welcome to Miami.
