4. Windsurfing

Miami Beach is an exceptional location for windsurfing. Miami Beach bay is also an excellent place for beginners who do not have much experience in windsurfing.

So, here are the three best places for windsurfing in Miami Beach:

  • 87 Street

The area has gentle winds that will allow you to enjoy your whole windsurfing experience.

Additionally, the waters are deep and choppy, which is great for windsurfing.

The only downside is that when you go windsurfing during the peak hours or days, it will be hard to enjoy because of the large crowds.

  • Key Biscayne

If you prefer calmer waters, then this is the best place to windsurf on South Miami Beach.

This part is not usually overcrowded. Therefore, it will best suit the armature windsurfers.

  • Crandon Park

Let me put a disclaimer here: If following rules is hard for you, this would not be your ideal place for windsurfing.

Crandon Park water park has strict rules that need to be followed while surfing. So, if only you adhere to these rules, then you will have a great time windsurfing.

5. Visit the Miami Beach Acquapark Village

If you’re traveling with kids or looking for family water activities in Miami, then Miami Beach Acquapark Village is the best place.

I discovered that the experience was even more incredible when you avoided the peak seasons. The last time we were there with my family, we had the whole place to ourselves with only eight more people.
