Miami Beach Tours
Read MoreShow Less
With its warm, clear waters and white sands, Miami Beach has perhaps some of the best urban beaches in the United States. Located just over the bridge from the city of Miami, it is also known for its vibrant neighborhoods, fine dining, pulsing nightlife, and architectural claim to fame: the area boasts the largest concentration of art deco buildings in the world.
Though the beaches themselves draw huge crowds of sun-worshippers, there is so much more to appreciate about Miami Beach. If you’re seeking pastel buildings, vintage neon signs, and a bustling scene, head to South Beach—particularly the Art Deco District and Ocean Drive. Away from the beach, you’ll find a mix of restaurants, parks, shopping, and the quieter, historic Espanola Way. See the sights on a walking tour, a bus tour, or a boat tour that gets you out on the water—private tours and group tours are available. Pedicabs also take visitors on leisurely sightseeing tours around the area.
Things to Know Before You Go
- Much of Miami Beach is pedestrian friendly, but you can cover more ground by car, or by taking a city sightseeing bus tour or boat tour.
- The most crowded beaches run from about 5th Street to 21st Street in the South Beach area.
- Families with kids should head north of 21st Street, especially to the beaches at 53rd Street or 73rd Street, or to Matheson Hammock Park or South Pointe Park.
How to Get There
Miami Beach is located on a barrier island between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The bay separates Miami Beach from the city of Miami, but it is accessible by road. Miami tours often include pickup and drop-off in downtown Miami or Miami Beach.
When to Get There
South Florida has a warm climate—and lots of visitors—year-round. Miami Beach is most popular from January to May, so expect the heaviest crowds then. Hurricane season, which often sees tropical rains, is from June to November.
Exploring Beyond Miami Beach
After sunning and reveling in Miami Beach, take some time to explore the surrounding area. Just a jaunt away are the iconic parts and eclectic areas of Miami—Little Havana, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, downtown Miami—all of which you can check out on a Miami city tour by neighborhood. Other popular excursions from Miami Beach include day trips to the wild Everglades and beautiful Key West.
