Where to stay in Miami

Suggested 3 day itinerary

Miami beach

Day 1

  • Kickstart your day by soaking up the sun on one of Miami's beautiful beaches. South Beach, with its iconic pastel-coloured lifeguard stands, is a top pick.
  • Hungry and ready to eat? Make your way to Little Havana for an authentic Cuban meal. Try some traditional dishes like Ropa Vieja or Picadillo, and sip on a refreshing mojito.
  • As the sun sets, explore Miami's renowned nightlife. South Beach and downtown Miami offer a variety of options, from rooftop lounges to beachfront parties.
Bayside Market Place

Day 2

  • Start your day with a visit to the Wynwood Arts District. Marvel at the vibrant street art and murals that cover the walls and enjoy a leisurely brunch at one of the trendy cafes.
  • Next, book a sunset cruise along Biscayne Bay or explore the vibrant Bayside Marketplace. Both will provide a picturesque setting to end your day, with the city lights coming to life.
  • To wrap up your second day, head to Coconut Grove, where waterfront restaurants offer a selection of fresh seafood and international cuisine.
Miami Street

Day 3

  • Ready for another day of excitement in Miami? Indulge in some high-end shopping at the Design District, or head out to Dolphin Mall for a bargain in the outlets.
  • Once you're shopped out, choose a waterfront location to enjoy a spectacular sunset with a sundowner. Lummus Park in South Beach or Sunset Harbor in Miami Beach are excellent choices.
  • Finish your day with a visit to Lincoln Road Mall. This pedestrian-friendly street in South Beach is lined with shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues.

The Magic City: Miami Highlights

Glittering Miami is where all of the energy and dynamism of the city meets the laid-back lifestyle of the beach. There are so many reasons this Florida hotspot is known as the Magic City: streets lined with glamorous bars and nightclubs, a sea salt-scented breeze blowing over a teal-coloured ocean and a distinct Cuban influence that brings eclecticism and rhythm to its cafés and cigar shops. If you’re tempted by a holiday to Miami, here are our top recommendations of where to go, eat and sleep.
