Exploring Miami

Nestling between the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and the vast wetlands of the Florida Everglades, the resort city of Miami is a favourite year-round destination for American sun-seekers and international visitors. Its diverse districts hold something for everyone, from the Art Deco delights of the Design District through the hedonistic delights of Miami Beach to upscale Coconut Grove with its fine dining and sophisticated nightlife. Beach life is the highlight here, with endless water sports opportunities, miles-long sandy strands and even a nude bathing area.

Miami is dedicated to tourism, with all its districts offering a choice of accommodation to suit all styles and pockets. Beachside hotels such as the Deauville Beach Resort are located a few steps from the sands, and famous Ocean Drive is the hottest place in town, albeit the most expensive. Hiring a stretch limo with friends for a tour of the street and waterfront is a unique Miami experience. South Beach is party central, especially during Spring Break when it’s crowded with US university students doing what students do best – having fun all night and every night. If you’re planning to visit around Easter and need a good night’s sleep, a hotel in Coconut Grove is your best option.

Sights nearby

Miami holds a plethora of interesting and varied places to visit, whether visitors are interested in the beach, the wildlife, the local history, or the classic tourist occupations of eating and shopping.

The Everglades
A boat trip around the Everglades with their unique ecosystems reveals mangrove swamps buzzing with alligators and other watery fauna as well as a plethora of bird life. Airboat tours are the best way to see the most.

Beaches
Miami’s beaches are world-famous for their watersports and beachside bars, and range between crowded and noisy to deserted and beautiful. South Beach is the most popular, followed by North Beach with its Haulover Beach Park, and Miami Beach is set on a barrier reef island in Biscayne Bay.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Set on Biscayne Bay, this European mansion and its estate are kept as they were a century ago. The main house with its period furniture, artworks and décor overlooks the waters, and the gardens are lovely year-round.

The Spanish Monastery
Imported in sections from Spain and left languishing in a US customs shed for decades, this 12th century monastery is now reconstructed just off the West Dixie Highway.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

Miami is foodie paradise, offering enless options from fine dining through ethnic cuisines to good old American-style meat-heavy meals. Prices vary according to exclusivity, but even the stylish restaurants at upscale hotels including the Ritz-Carlton offer buffet lunches that give great savings. Seafood is the highlight, with many eateries specialising in freshly-caught crab, lobster and prawn dishes. For lovers of prime steak, Residence Inn by Marriott is the place and, for amazingly authentic Japanese food, Matsuri on SW 40th Street serves an unbeatable bento lunch. Miami’s main shopping districts are found along Collins Avenue and Lincoln Road, with South Beach a hub for fashionistas. The city has dozens of malls, with open-air Lincoln Road Mall a must-visit for its designer gear and high street names. For bargains across the board, the factory outlets at Sawgrass Mills and Dolphin Mall are shopoholics’ heaven.

Public transport

Miami’s international airport is the major arrivals hub for visitors, with flights arriving from across the Americas as well as from selected European cities. Access from Austalia is likely to be via Los Angeles, however. Onward transportation is via the newly-opened MetroRail station in the complex, giving a fast journey to the city based on a schedule operating between 05:00 and midnight. Hotel shuttles, an Airport Express bus, local buses, affordable taxis and car rental are all available, but road traffic in the city can be heavy, severely affecting journey times. If you’re staying in the downtown district, the Metromover elevated people mover is free and links most destinations.
