Stunning sandy beaches, fantastic fishing areas and one of the largest urban state parks in Florida make Sunny Isles Beach a sports paradise.

Imagine whizzing across the turquoise waters on a wave runner, sailing on a catamaran or reeling in a big catch on a deep-sea fishing excursion. The menu of outdoor recreation possibilities is seemingly endless in Sunny Isles Beach.

An Outdoor Oasis

The famous phrase, “life’s a beach,” certainly applies to Sunny Isles Beach where you can enjoy the Atlantic Ocean in a variety of ways. Atlantic Beach Club Water Sports offers wave runners, ocean kayaks, Hobie catamarans, SeaDuction floats, inner tubes, rafts and boogie board rentals. For jet ski enthusiasts, Jet Ski King has rentals and guided tours. Turnberry Beach Sports has paddleboards, snorkelling equipment and jet ski rentals.

Paddleboard day or night with the Blue Moon Outdoor Center guides in Oleta River State Park. You can experience moonlight paddleboarding with “Night Time Stand-Up Paddleboard Tours,” which have lights attached to help guide you through the waters. During the day, you can rent a board on your own or take a guided tour through the lush park on the northernmost part of Biscayne Bay.

Fishing enthusiasts can hit the open waters on a charter deep-sea excursion. Sailing from Haulover Marina, North Miami Beach native Captain Dennis Forgione’s Free Spool Sportfishing Charters offers full-day and half-day excursions in search of sailfish, dolphin, tuna, kingfish and more. For those who want to stay closer to terra firma, the recently rebuilt 237-metre-long (776-foot-long) Newport Fishing Pier, the only public fishing pier in Miami-Dade County, is a great place to catch Spanish mackerel, snapper, kingfish and bluefish.

Tee-it-high-and-watch-it-fly golf opportunities are available at Turnberry Isle Miami Resort, which boasts two 18-hole championship courses redesigned by golf icon Raymond Floyd, as well as at Greynolds Golf Course and more than 25 courses within a 30-minute drive.

Endless Possibilities

If you’re sailing from the Port of Miami, Sunny Isles Beach is ideally situated as a pre- or post-cruise destination.

Sunny Isles Beach is a dreamlike setting for weddings with an impressive selection of luxury properties for oceanside vows and festivities and stunning venues such as the Ancient Spanish Monastery, a wonderland of arches, stonework and gardens. After the wedding, Sunny Isles Beach is the perfect place for a honeymoon with its bevy of beaches, romantic restaurants and beachfront properties.
