How to Pack for Miami Beach

23 January 2019

Say the words “Miami Beach” and images of sparkling white sands, crystal blue waters, neon lights, and fast cars usually come to mind. Endless sunshine, high temperatures and an occasional afternoon shower are also a reality.

To pack for Miami and explore a variety of experiences, pack a wardrobe of basics that can be mixed,
matched, and dressed up to go from day to night. While comfort is key, here is our list of five items to pack that will have you looking the part the moment you step foot on the sand.

5 Things to Pack for Your Trip

Beachwear | As this is a beach city, flip-flops and T-shirts are a common sight but don’t forget to pack an extra swimsuit. The beaches are beautiful and there are plenty of watersports activities – jet-skis, paddle-boarding, parasailing – so an extra suit will come in handy.

Walking Shoes | Miami Beach is a relatively small island, with most of the activities and sights situated in a four mile radius. We think exploring the area is best on foot; you’ll see more Art Deco details, be able to explore side alleys with secret art installations and make frequent stops for that perfect Instagram photo. Save yourself the blisters and pack your most stylish Nikes.

Work Out Gear | Want to get your blood pumping? Miami Beach offers an array of recreational activities. From running paths, to sunrise yoga, rollerblading to biking, there is something for everyone. For land lovers, make sure to bring your latest athletic gear so you don’t miss out on the bayside or oceanfront paths that run south from the hotel to Government Cut and around the southern tip of the island. There are stunning views of the water and watching the cruise ships go out to sea is a relaxing way to spend a morning.

Dress to Impress l | Flip-flops and T-shirts are a common sight here but Miami is a sophisticated town. Featuring an array of internationally acclaimed restaurants, bars and nightlife outlets, by night, this is a place that requires you to dress to impress. With the right outfit you’ll be feeling fancy free.

Sunscreen | The Florida sun isn’t kidding around. Wear a 30 spf sunscreen when you go outside to protect your skin from UV rays, pack sunglasses, and wear a hat. A sunburn isn’t a souvenir that you want to take home.
