Sunny Isles Beach
Tucked between the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Intracoastal Waterway on the west, Sunny Isles Beach is just north of Miami Beach, just south of Fort Lauderdale's sleek, palm-lined boulevards and serves as the home of the luxurious Trump International Beach Resort. Sunny Isles is a place of world-renowned restaurants, nightclubs, theaters, cultural destinations and, most notably, the beaches. It boasts one of the Miami area's most stunning oceanfront vistas, with miles of gorgeous white sand, pristine public parks and plenty of places to play.
The atmosphere in Sunny Isles Beach is casual. The funky 50's motels and small beachfront hotels are giving way to luxury apartment towers and hotels. However, little has changed on the Newport Fishing Pier, where you can drop a line and fish from shore. For real deep-sea fishing, head to the charter boats docked on the Intracoastal Waterway at Haulover Beach Park. Across the way, a one-mile stretch of white sand and open ocean surf invites sunbathing and swimming. Oleta River State Park is a popular destination for kayaking and biking.
Sunny Isles Beach is often referred to as Florida's Riviera. It's a Miami seaside community with an international mix of residents who appreciate its many amenities.
