Miami Outdoor Activities

Whether it's the drop-dead gorgeous beaches, the miles of hiking and biking trails, or the year-round sun, staying indoors too long in Miami just feels wrong. Better get out and about, then.

You might like to engage in the odd flirtation with the great outdoors, or you might be a full-blown outdoor junkie. Either way, Miami won't disappoint. The fantastic climate means you'll hardly ever have to call off your plans due to the weather. And, away from the city streets, the beauty of the natural landscapes is enough to make you want to cry. Or enough to make you want to grab a pair of hiking boots and get on out there. Either way, the landscapes will make you feel things.

Both on the coast and inland, there's simply no more delightful place to get your outdoors on than in Miami. Here are a few places to begin.

Watersports in Miami

  • The Bill Bird Marina at Haulover Park should be high on every fishing addict's itinerary. Head here to charter a boat and start reeling them in.
  • Wake-surfing, knee-boarding and more are on the menu at the fantastic (and relatively new) Miami Watersports Complex.
  • Incredible dive sites abound around Miami. Don't miss the Wreck Trek, the final resting place of multiple shipwrecks, now home to shoals of colorful fish.

Biking and Hiking in Miami

  • If you're serious about mountain biking, prove it by taking on the intense trail at Amelia Earhart Park.
  • For a less taxing bike ride, try the scenic, relatively flat trails in Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park.
  • Bike up the Rickenbacker Causeway and you'll be rewarded with striking views of Biscayne Bay. Stop for a picnic at one of the lovely beaches you'll pass on the route.

Other Outdoor Activities in Miami

  • Golf is in Miami's soul. You've got to play a few rounds. You've just got to. The famous Miami Beach Golf Club is a great place for your first Miami golfing adventure.
  • Watch a high-level match or test your own skills at the Crandon Park Tennis Center and Stadium.
  • Ready to be seriously awed by nature? The vast Everglades National Park is close by. Hike, bike, kayak and try out about a million other awesome outdoor activities.
