7 Best Places to Watch the Miami Sunset

Living in South Florida gives us the privilege to admire breathtaking landscapes and colorful skies on the daily basis. While the average Miamian may start a night out on the town no earlier than midnight, no one can resist the views of magic hour and the golden sunset that follows. 

We’ve gathered a few of our favorite places to celebrate the palette of the South Florida sky. These photogenic spots are 305 staples that must be shared—if you didn’t snap it, did it really even happen?

Haulover Beach Park

If you’re brave enough to visit Haulover Beach, one of America’s notable nude beaches, the sunsets are prime. Warning: you may or may not see a Canadian grandpa taking a dip sans Speedo. Is it worth it? A picture speaks a thousand words.

It only takes one picture at Juvia to make your non-Miami friends scoff at your “luxurious” lifestyle. When it comes to food, ambiance and design, Juvia is the trinity of perfection. The fact that the restaurant has sweeping views of the Miami sky doesn’t hurt. There’s a reason why every table is occupied with a Tinder date—it’s hard to have a bad night with a gorgeous view.

Rusty Pelican 

Whether you’re entertaining visitors or just wanting to indulge in something beautiful on your own, a dinner at Rusty Pelican is a fundamental experience. The astonishing skyline scenery on Rickenbacker Causeway is enough to prompt tears. (For best results, play your favorite Ed Sheeran song on repeat with a side of rosé.)

EPIC Hotel 

For lack of a better word, the view from EPIC Hotel is…epic. Downtown Miami’s gem is not to be taken for granted.

South Pointe Park 

When you subtract the tourists stalking the area, South Pointe Park is perhaps the most sublime sight in the entire 305. Does it really get better than this photograph?

The Deck at Island Gardens 

The Deck at Island Gardens is self-proclaimed as the first super yacht marina and we’re not complaining. Can we all take a minute to show some thanks for the stellar panoramic sunset that takes place on the deck? It’s safe to say these yogis said “Nah, I’m a stay here forever.”

1 Hotel 

It’s no secret that 1 Hotel is a one-of-the-kind haven for all things chic. If the sustainably sound resort’s reclaimed wood details and lush greenery wasn’t enough to make you feel an elevated level of cool, the rooftop pool and ocean views will. Sunsets + succulents = Instagram gold.

Get out and catch the sun. (The plus side is that there may even be a few Pokestops along the way.)
