Sports & Recreation Enthusiasts Find Much to Enjoy on Miami Beach

With so much to do in South Beach, you'll find that your options for outdoor activities are vast and rewarding. If the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean beckon, there are certainly plenty of opportunities to get wet. The friendly staff at your hotel of choice Hotel St. Augustine will provide you with assistance on anything from jet skiing options to sailing, and from scooter rentals to tennis. If you're longing for something more adventurous, ask about hang gliding or kite surfing lessons.

If golf is your game, South Florida welcomes both novice and experienced players with a variety of course options. Try your luck at the 18 holes of the historic Miami Beach Golf Club, which was unveiled in 1923 and is open to the public. Another option is the championship Crandon Golf Course on Key Biscayne, and only a short drive away, Doral's famed Blue Monster awaits.

Want to follow on a pro’s footsteps? Anna Kournikova has called the facilities at Flamingo Park Tennis Center her “favorite public tennis courts.” The former home of the Junior Orange Bowl Tournament, it’s also welcomed the likes of Bjorn Borg, Ivan Lendl and John McEnroe.

Care for some angling time? Sport fishing is another great choice here, with Miami waters teeming with wahoo, mahi mahi, marlin and other species. But if you’d rather just enjoy the boat ride, stop by the Miami Beach Marina, where Ocean Force Adventures provides tours along the Art Deco skyline of Ocean Drive, film and TV show locations and the Upper Florida Keys Barrier Reef System. At the marina, you can also rent your own skiff or jet ski.

The friendly concierge staff at our Miami Beach boutique hotel can help with plans and reservations.
