Things to do
A man-made island off the Miami mainland, Miami Beach was purposely created to be a glamorous winter getaway. To the north you’ll find Miami Beach itself, where you can take in panoramic views of the shimmering Atlantic Ocean while on its lovely soft sands. At the southern tip of the island is the famous South Beach (and its nightlife), not to mention the Art Deco hotels of Ocean Drive. Hotels in Miami place you near shopping destinations like Collins Avenue; Miami’s world-class boutiques, stores, restaurants and galleries are waiting to be explored.
Even though its latitude is not quite tropical, the climate could certainly be described as such, with warm winters and hot summers. The city does experience quite a lot of rainfall overall, but much of this falls from June to October, when daytime temperatures are generally around 30 (°C) and night-time temperatures don't usually fall below the mid-20s (°C).
It’s 9 hours from the UK to Miami International Airport (MIA), which is 7 miles northwest of downtown Miami.
