Surfside Beach vacation rentals

Surfside Beach – SoCal's coolest beachside retreat

Looking for a family-friendly resort that offers all the glamour of Miami but with a more laidback vibe? We have the answer. Nestled between swanky Bal Harbour and crowded Miami Beach, Surfside Beach is one of Miami's best-kept secrets. Offering clean, safe beaches and no shortage of fun amenities, this funky coastal town is home to a lively restaurant scene and year-round activities to suit all ages. Book a Surfside Beach vacation rental on one of the palm-fringed streets and enjoy sun, sea and sand while mingling with the friendly locals in this cozy coastal town.

Fun in the sun in Surfside

Once you’ve explored the mile-long stretch of pristine beach – either by strolling through the sand or biking along the coastal paths – there are plenty of things to do in Surfside Beach. Aside from the obvious array of water sports, there’s a tennis center, several community parks and golf at the exclusive Indian Creek Country Club. Take a deep-sea fishing trip or get your shopping fix by visiting the town’s eclectic boutiques or nearby Bal Harbour’s high-end mall. Health and wellness is a big deal here, so you’ll find a daily programme of fitness and wellness classes at the beachfront community center.

Surfside's vibrant community

Surfside's lively community center is the social hub of the town, and amenities include a pool, a children's plunge pool and a whirlpool spa. Across the street, you'll find a charming public art display – 13 sculptures of loggerhead sea turtles, the town's most famous aquatic residents. Parents and children alike will enjoy visiting the nearby Miami Auto Museum, where both James Bond and Batman have parked their cars. The town also hosts a number of free, family-friendly events, including a monthly community beach picnic.

Surfside Beach – where the sun always shines

With year-round sunshine, and temperatures rarely falling below 70F, it's extremely rare to experience a cold and wet day in Surfside. The winter months offer pleasant temperatures in the mid 60s, and Surfside Beach vacation rentals are in high demand at this time, with travelers flocking to Miami for some much-needed winter sun. It's peak time for the international festivals too, including contemporary art fair Art Basel Miami Beach in December. It's less crowded in the summer months, when it's hot and humid - so it's a good time to visit, as long as you can handle the heat.

Surfside Beach's turtle tribe

Set overlooking the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the pristine white-sand beach is undoubtedly Surfside Beach's big draw. But the beach is more than just a haven for sunbathing and water sports – it's also where many of Florida's famous loggerhead sea turtles congregate to do their thing during nesting season (May to October). Book a Surfside Beach vacation rental during either summer or fall and you'll probably see small protected areas on the beach, and find limited street lighting in place after sunset, in order to protect the eggs and hatchlings of these very special visitors.
