Miami’s Outdoor LifestyleMarch 23, 2021
Miami’s March weather is so wonderfully agreeable with our 79-degree days. Sunny and mild, this is the perfect time for Miamians to experience dozens of different ocean, bay, and beach adventures. Picture yourself warmed by the sun, enjoying our lushly beautiful waterways, and enjoying these activities for all ages.
Boating and Sailing:
From quiet places to anchor, like in Boca Chita, or fun places to gather, like at the Haulover Sandbar, you have plenty of choices to go by boat. In Coconut Grove you can float along the waterways of the Biscayne Bay, and dock for a freshly caught lunch at one of the many local restaurants. Head to the Miami Beach Marina to tour the historic Stiltsville homes. Or zoom around Port Miami, Star Island, Monument Island, Fisher Island, and South Beach at speeds up to 50 mph.
Canoeing and Kayaking:
Miami’s waterways are tranquil all year long, making them perfect for kayaking, canoeing, and standup paddle boarding. Places to explore include Key Biscayne, Virginia Key, Matheson Hammock Park, and Sunset Harbour. Outings are particularly picturesque when you go for a sunrise, sunset, or full-moon adventure. You may even encounter a manatee or two!
Snorkeling and Diving:
Miami’s waters are connected to the Florida Straits, the third-largest barrier reef in the world. Emerald Reef and Long Reef are both excellent natural reefs for beginning divers and snorkelers. Neptune Memorial Reef is a manmade reef east of Key Biscayne built to resemble the Lost City of Atlantis. For more expert-level adventures, try Sheri-Lyn, DEMA Trader. and Almirante.
From the shallow flats of Biscayne Bay to deep-sea fishing on the Atlantic, Miami is a superb place for a fishing voyage, big or small. Miami is also a great starting point to access the bountiful waters of the Florida Keys and Bahamas.
Miami’s world-famous beaches offer everything from resort-like luxury to rustic nature preserves. The heart of South Beach has a festive atmosphere along Ocean Drive and Lummus Park. Take quiet refuge at the tip of Key Biscayne at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park and Beach. From Sunny Isles Beach to Surfside, and Oleta River State Park to Matheson Hammock Park, there are miles of mesmerizing aquamarine water, bright sun, and palm trees.
