More South Beach Miami Area Things to Do
If lying about on a beach all day and generally lazing just isn't your style, we are delighted to tell you that Miami has loads of options for sports of all kinds! Here is just a choice selection...
Rollerblading! You'll see the keen bladers everywhere: along the boardwalk, along Lincoln road, in Lummus Park... not too expensive to rent for the day, and tons of fun!
Volleyball – beach volleyball is fantastic, so if you have a group of friends or just feel like joining in a game, head on down the beach until you hit 9th Street and you'll find several nets up for your enjoyment!
Scuba Diving and Snorkeling is particularly popular in Key Largo, and the South Beach Divers take expeditions out there almost daily. Remember your diving license!
Jet Skis – zoom around the water!
Mountain biking and Kayaking – Oleta River State Park is a fantastic expanse of wood trails and mangrove forests, perfect for those who like their sport a little more individual! You can rent equipment (crash helmets compulsory for mountain biking) and you can even stay there overnight in cabins if you wish!
If Kite Surfing and Wind Surfing are more your scene, head on out to Key Biscayne, and book yourself into a class or just rent equipment if you're already a pro!
Golf – There are many inexpensive courses in Miami for you to while away the hours...
Watching Sports – Or if you enjoy watching others do all the work, Miami Heat basketball games aren't far away and cost anything from $20 to $150. Up to you!
