South Pointe

ENJOY: PARK

This is a park that most tourists never get to visit but it is a must-go spot in Miami Beach. It is a very inspiring walk that starts from the beach and turns in to a park that wraps around into the mouth of the bay of Miami. From there you can get an awe-inspiring view of the city of Miami against a vanilla sky in most days. Locals love to hang around here to take their kids, do yoga or just sit by the water. Be prepared to take off your shoes and lay back.

TIP: Best time is just right before sunset.
