Most Instagrammable Spots In South Beach (+ Some Off-Beach Gems!)

If you didn’t share it on your Insta story, did it even happen!? If you’re vacationing in South Beach – for the first time, or the tenth – no trip is complete without snapping some dreamy, drool-worthy shots of all the amazing places you visited. 

When you hop on the back of your scooter rental in South Beach, don’t miss these most Instagrammable spots. If you want to explore even more of Miami, we’re including some off-beach gems that you won’t want to miss. 

#1 – Ocean Drive

Ocean Drive is the main road that runs through South Beach. With the beach on one side, and iconic art deco hotels and restaurants on the other, there is no shortage of fabulous photo opps. You’ll want to hit this spot day and night because when the strip comes to life at night, the neon lights are so Insta. 

#2 – Lifeguard Towers

When you do hit the beach, you’ll see all the quirky lifeguard towers Miami Beach is known for. No two are alike, and they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. You could create an entire Insta album here!

#3 – South Pointe Park

The southernmost beach on Miami Beach, there are loads of spots to get some amazing pictures here. With a pier that offers panoramic views of South Beach, downtown Miami, Fisher Island, and PortMiami’s massive cruise ships, it’s a feast for the eyes – and camera!

#4 – Dreamer Miami

The inside of this juice bar and cafe looks like it was designed just for the ‘gram. The pastel, tropical vibe is the perfect backdrop for some model-worthy shots, and the matcha and smoothie bowls are pretty amazing too!

#5 – Nikki Beach

This iconic restaurant and beach club is a Miami Beach staple for soaking in the rays, taking in the gorgeous people, and getting a taste of the beach. Reserve a signature teepee and get some amazing shots of that beach-chic lifestyle.

Off The Beach 

If you want to get off the beach and explore downtown Miami and the surrounding areas, we recommend these can’t-miss spots for even more Insta-worthy shots:

  • Miami Design District – Shop ’til you drop, or just take your camera and snap some amazing pics. The DD has it all: food, drinks, shopping, art, architecture, and fashion. 

  • Little Havana – The center of Hispanic culture in Miami, don’t miss Calle Ocho (8th St.), which is where you’ll find all the authentic Cuban food, drinks, music, art, and flair!

  • Wynwood – While the 80,000sf of walled art murals are the main draw here, Wynwood is actually a bustling neighborhood complete with shopping, dining, and plenty of photo opps.

  • Vizcaya Museums & Gardens – Located on Biscayne Bay, this 10 acre estate from the Gilded Age will take your breath away. Stroll the gardens, visit the main house, and load your camera roll up with stunning photos (#nofilter!). 

  • Coral Gables – Known as "The City Beautiful" for a reason, Coral Gables is a stark difference from South Beach. Here you’ll find "old Florida" architecture, sprawling mansions, palm-lined roads, and the world-famous Biltmore Hotel and natural spring-fed Venetian Pool
