Destination guide

Sandy stretches and shopping aplenty North Miami Beach

North Miami Beach has long doffed its cap to the barrier islands of South Beach and those trendy strips, but it’s certainly got plenty of panache of its own. There’s the sprawling shopping malls and happening oceanside promenades. Then there’s the long, sandy stretches of pearly sand that descend softly to the dolphin-spotted waters of the aquamarine Atlantic Ocean and the cool Cuban taco joints and sizzling Chinese eateries. Located in a multicultural and diverse subsection of the bucket-list Magic City, North Miami Beach vacation rentals rarely fail to enthrall, excite, and enamor to the kitschy vibes of the Sunshine State.

Things to do

Spanish churches and state parks

Although the long and glistening stretch of white-sand beach at Haulover Park magnetizes sun worshippers for much of the year, it's actually the more off-beat Oleta River State Park that has some of the best scenery in North Miami Beach. Here, you can wander riverside walking paths, picnic on the lawns, and kayak through the city's heart. For an altogether different attraction, the St. Bernard de Clairvaux Church offers a taste of authentic Spanish history. Hailed as the oldest building in the Western Hemisphere, it dates from the 12th century, and was uprooted from Segovia to be totally reconstructed in the United States.


Oceanside vibes and marine animals in North Miami Beach

North Miami Beach vacation rentals located along the waterfront of this oceanside town are some of the most sought after – they offer the best access to the Atlantic coast, going from Haulover Park to Sunny Isles Beach, and have the top sunrise watching in town. Once you're done kicking back on the sands, you can hit a round of 18 in 1 of the 2 separate golf courses within city limits, or go for a spot of kayaking around the waterways of Oleta River State Park. Dolphin cruises and fishing excursions are also ubiquitous from the piers here.


December sun is guaranteed in North Miami Beach

You won't need to worry about the weather if you come this far south in the wintertime, because North Miami Beach's tropical climate ensures steady temperatures in the high 70s and plenty of opportunities to kick back on the Atlantic coast for a bout of tanning on the sands. That means you can look forward to plenty of rays if you go in search of North Miami Beach vacation rentals between the months of November and March, while a May visit also means high mercury levels and some welcomingly low rates to boot.

Natural features

Nature’s right on the doorstep of North Miami Beach

To the east of North Miami Beach, the sandy shores of the Atlantic run from the palm-topped waters of the Oleta River State Park to the surf-kissed sands of Haulover. And to the west, when the metropolis finally gives way to the Floridian backcountry, the land is taken over by the famous Everglades. This vast wetland of sawgrass marshes, tropical hammocks, and cypress woods boasts huge biodiversity, and airboating tours there weave through the Kissimmee River to the mangroves and croc-spotted bayous.
