1. South Pointe Park
Get the best of both worlds when you visit South Pointe Park: the vibrant greenery of the tropics and the sparkling ocean that hugs the sandy shoreline. 🌊 If you want a photoshoot at the beach or in the shade, this park has you covered (figuratively and literally 😉)!
It’s no surprise this our most booked route because this park really has it all! Take a stroll around and enjoy all the picnic benches, barbecue areas, café, and playground. Or, soak in the sun and walk along South Pointe Park Pier to take in views of Fisher Island, Port Miami, and Biscayne Bay. 🌅
The most photo-worthy places at this stunning location are the pier because of its views. It has the beautiful ocean as a backdrop and the Miami skyline of buildings and skyscrapers stretching behind you. 🌃

2. South Beach
Whether it is night or day, South Beach has something to offer. It’s filled with oceanside dining, Art Deco-inspired lifeguard towers, and swaying palm trees. 🏝
Be sure to take a photo with the bright lifeguard towers and trees before taking a dip in the cold but refreshing Atlantic Ocean. Maybe even pose with an ice cream cone🍦 from one of the many nearby shops. Whatever you desire, this Miami hotspot has it all.
And don’t forget to check out the urban beachfront of Lummus Park before you go! It is filled with volleyball courts, field space, and walking trails — everything you need to have fun with the entire family! 😎

3. Wynwood Walls Graffiti
Once upon a time, this must-see Miami Beach attraction was a large stock of warehouses. Now it is a significant art statement not only to Florida but to the entire world. Artists worldwide have left a little piece of themselves on the giant canvas that is Wynwood Walls, making it a must-see for any tourist or local. 🎨
The street art makes for a colourful and Instagrammable backdrop for solo or group photoshoots. (See the photos below for inspiration!)

4. Cape Florida Lighthouse
Surrounded by Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, this historic lighthouse, which was established in 1825, is a beautiful and popular spot to get married. 💕 If that doesn’t reassure you that it is a stunning backdrop to take photos, I don’t know what will!
Cape Florida Lighthouse is another must-see because it is rich in history. Take a tour of the lighthouse and keeper’s cottage to learn the story behind the photos you capture. ✨

5. Little Havana
Experience a taste of Cuba right here in Miami with Little Havana. It is filled with Latin culture and politics, which means there are several stops you need to add to your itinerary in this Cuban-inspired neighbourhood:
- Maximo Gomez Park – Known as “Domino Park” by the locals, you can find this bustling and charming park on Calle Ocho. Enjoy a wander down the stone pathways and admire the architecture, or join in on one of the regular domino games. ♟ Stand under the tiled shelters from the sun or next to the tall, green trees and pose for a picture to remember the fun at this popular location.
- Calle Ocho Walk of Fame – Another desirable area on Calle Ocho is its Walk of Fame. Snap a photo next to the stars and celebrate famous Latin artists like Gloria Estefan, Julio Iglesias, and other familiar names. ⭐️
- Tower Theatre – Whether you are a movie buff or not, Tower Theatre is a must-add to your Miami list. 🎥 This theatre opened in 1926 and is one of Miami’s oldest cultural landmarks, making it a great memory to add to your camera roll.

6. Indian Beach Park
Ideal for a golden hour shoot, Indian Beach Park is also a popular spot for canoeing, kayaking, and watching the sunset. 🌞 Make sure you find a lovely and shady spot under the palm trees because once you sit down, you won’t want to leave!
Like South Beach, you will spot a few vibrant lifeguard towers. Take a photo leaning against the tower’s colourful railings, or have it behind you right along with the glittering waves. 🙌🏼 This picturesque location demands to have at least a few photos taken with it!

8. Ocean Drive
Ocean Drive is only a short drive from downtown Miami and one street over from Collins Avenue, where the 5-star luxury Faena Hotel resides. It offers many places to go and things to do from restaurants, bars, shops, and beaches. 🍻 It makes sense why the average time spent here is more than 3 hours!
As of July 2020, this road is pedestrian traffic only, making room for more outdoor seating at restaurants and bars. Even before this resolution was passed, it is a must-walk because of its vibrant atmosphere and breathtaking oceanview. 🤩
