Galore Mag Southe Pointe

Swim: South Pointe

The best ocean swimming on Miami Beach is at South Pointe by the rocks separating the beach and the channel cruise ships use to enter and exit the harbor. It’s a great spot to see wildlife and experience views of the entire beach and downtown.

Galore Mag The Standard

Play: The Standard

One of the best ways to get on the water without needing a boat is by paddle board. Rent one at The Standard and explore the bay intimately. It’s a good workout and really fun. Plus, you can grab lunch after at the Lido Bar or lounge by the pool with a piña colada.
