Experience the calmer side of the Miami area in Sunny Isles Beach, where the crowds are fewer and the relaxation is abundant. Great, affordable hotels like the Days Hotel Thunderbird, and beautiful white sand beaches await you in Sunny Isles Beach. The city’s smaller size, however, doesn’t impact the number of fun beach activities available to visitors. Many water activities are available far beyond grabbing some rays on the beach. Take a boat tour, grab a line and go fishing, or rent a kayak. Check out some cool water activities you might enjoy while visiting Sunny Isles Beach.
In the Waves
Get out on the water in boating style by renting a power boat or yacht or by going on a sailboat tour. Several companies in Sunny Isles Beach, like Prime Luxury Rentals and Atlantic Yacht Charter INC, offer opportunities to either rent a sleek, luxurious boat to take out on the water or to go on a fabulous tour of the area. They even offer party boats if you need to throw an event. Take a few hours out of your day for a cruise of Miami by sunset or a star-studded water tour of all the beachfront celebrity homes.
Along the Pier
Check out Pier Park and the newly renovated Newport Fishing Pier. Head over for direct beach access and for the opportunity to get a view into the depths of the Atlantic from along the pier itself. If you like to fish, grab your gear and head over. It costs just five dollars, and you’ll be treated to gorgeous panoramic ocean views as you relax with your pole and line. The Doubletree by Hilton Ocean Point Resort and Spa North Miami Beach sits just a short walk away from the pier, and a stay at this hotel offers relaxation and great customer service.
On the Beach
Of course you’ll probably spend the majority of your Sunny Isles Beach vacation on the white sands or in the cool Atlantic waters. Make the most of it by staying in a hotel with exemplary beach-side service, and come away feeling pampered. The Ramada Marco Polo Beach Resort sits on the beach and offers direct private beach access without tacking on exorbitant resort fees. They provide towels and lounge chairs for your utmost comfort and also have a pool, sauna, and steam room if you need to get out of the salt water or the sun for a while.
Through the Mangroves
Get your sports fix by visiting Oleta River State Park, where you can rent kayaks and canoes and go out into Florida’s wilderness. Experience the river, the wildlife, and the beautiful mangroves with their unique root systems and canopies of shade. If you want a leisurely experience, take a canoe out for a short jaunt. Sportier individuals will love kayaking the river. Because this city has a small land area, most Sunny Isles Beach hotels are within a short drive of Oleta River State Park, so no matter where you stay you’ll be close to this great urban park.
