The sunny shores of Miami are located on the south-eastern tip of America’s state of Florida with the Bahamas less than 1000km off its shores. With a strong Cuban influence, Florida not only has exceptional beaches, but also enticing cafés and colourful buildings with cigar shops and the must-visit area of Little Havana. The city is filled with exciting attractions, casino’s clubs and restaurants.
Miami Beach sits just off the mainland of Miami city and is accessible by a series of bridges. With turquoise water, soft sand and plenty of activities, a day (or three) on the beach is a definite must when in Miami. Miami Beach is also famed for the Art Deco district with its colourful 1930s buildings, the visually stimulating Ocean Drive with a variety of restaurants, shopping opportunities and hotels.
Bayside Marketplace is a great place to spend a few hours soaking up the warm Miami sun and vibrant atmosphere of the city. Situated along the waterfront overlooking boats and yachts, you’ll find an excellent selection of shops to pick up some memorabilia of your trip, something from a large chain store, and loads more. There is also daily live music and plenty of cafés and restaurants to choose from. It’s also where many ferries and water taxis leave for Biscayne Bay and Miami Beach.
If you’re looking for a small taste of Cuba, head over to Little Havana where you will find a variety of restaurants offering Cuban cuisine, one or two cigar shops, and other especially Cuban elements such as well-known Cuban people painted as murals onto the district's walls. It’s a definite must if you’re looking for a different cultural experience.
