With ten miles of sandy shores, Miami spoils visitors with places for fun in the sun. Don't forget, though, that the Miami area also features prime off-the-beach attractions such as a world-class zoo, playful children's museum, great golf courses, and easy access to the natural wonders of Biscayne and Everglades national parks.
beaches stretch from South Pointe Park north to Sunny Isles Beach. While many oceanfront hotels in the heart of Miami Beach offer just a sliver of sand, Sunny Isles and Key Biscayne properties boast wider beaches. Two Key Biscayne parks have plenty of sand as well: Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, home to a 19th-century lighthouse, and Crandon Park Beach, which offers tram tours and bird and butterfly walks.
