North Beach

Overview

North Beach is the opposite twin of South Beach. Both have beautiful beaches, however, North Beach is the least-recognized in the city. Not to say that North Beach isn’t cool, it is actually preferred over South Beach by the locals for its calm demeanor and low-key excitement. You will find more families and tourists who want to enjoy the weather and gorgeous landscape without the tension and over exuberance of the Southern portion of Miami Beach.

Friday Night Fun

North Beach derives its entertainment from the local crowds. Restaurants transform from touristy dining during the day to common hangouts for residents at night. The actual beach is less restricted than South Beach, and every month on a full moon the beach converts into an eclectic party of drumbeats, fire dancers, and observers that locals refer to as the “Drum Circle”.

The Perfect Sunday

Sundays are known for the beach. Most of the crowds on the beach will be family-oriented with tourists in-between. Many of the small local cafes are closed during this time, as many take this day to attend church or the parks and beaches. The boardwalk trail is usually full on Sundays with bikers, runners, strollers, and people walking their pets. Boats and jet skis can be seen off the coast, while on the beach wake boarders and volleyball players enjoy the sun and ocean breeze.

"Favorite Miami 'hood!"

Close enough to all the action, nightlife, and top restaurants in SoBe, however this area is a bit quieter and more low key.
