Miami Beach is split into North and South. South beach offers art deco buildings forming the iconic neon skyline which most people imagine when they think of Miami. This part of the beach beach sits in front of a promenade packed with restaurants, bars and slightly shabby hotels. This is the place to see and be seen in Miami and you can club into the night, if you wish.

North Beach is a more sophisticated neighbourhood with a slower pace. Starting near 60th Street and extending up to Surfside on its northern border, North Beach attracts families and children and has a number of luxury hotels that front directly onto the beach. One of the most exciting new openings for 2017 is the brand new Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club (bordering the beach pictured above).

This vision of 21st-century luxury travel rekindles the old-Miami glamour once favoured by guests from Sinatra to Churchill. In the most idyllic location for a private club, the resort is drenched in sun and sea within in these nine remarkable acres fronting the Atlantic Ocean. Four Seasons has elevated The original Surf Club to a new era of glamour. In this exclusive oasis of just 77 guest rooms, sip a signature Mangareva cocktail in a super-luxe cabana, discover serenity in the Spa, clink glasses in the historic heart of the Hotel or hide away in the dreamy landscape with unbridled ocean vistas.

Whichever side of Miami’s Beaches’ you prefer, the gorgeous white sands and warm breezes make Miami Beach one of the most perfect beaches under the sun.
