5 Tips to Avoid Spring Break Crowds in Miami
Florida Vacation Guide Tips to Avoiding Spring Break Crowds in Miami
If you planned a vacation for Spring Break to Miami and forgot it was student party central, there are ways to escape the crowds. If you can afford more expensive venues, it’s your best bet to steer clear of late-night beach bashes and loud DJ parties. Check out our tips below:
Golf on the island
Only accessible by ferry, Fisher Island is the ultimate escape as your name needs to clear the security list before you can even step onto the boat! Although the course is a 9-hole, you can golf in privacy and even claim a private stretch of beach to yourself at this former Vanderbilt winter retreat.
Try a Wine Bar
While students are downing pitchers of beer, you can sip on a flight of tropical flat or sweet desert wines at Miami’s Schnebly Redland’s Winery. Their wines are all crafted from tropical fruits with hints of lychee, coconut, avocado or passion fruit. They even brew their own beer, infused with the flavors of tropical fruits from Mango to Guava.
De-stress at the Spa
Slipping onto the Betsy’s Deck – the landmark hotel’s expansive ocean-view rooftop Wellness Garden – is a de-stress method in itself. Arrive early for your massage treatment as the sweeping views of the ocean from the palm and bamboo deck are a soothing way to slip you from Ocean Drive into the Zen-style atmosphere among palm trees and salty ocean air. Focusing on ancient methods and ingredients indigenous to cultural region, the Betsy has incorporated spa treatments from around the world such as mineral rich salts from the Dead Sea and Inchi Oil from Peru, one of the richest plant sources of Omega 3 in the world.
Charter a boat
Take to the open waters where the destination is your choice and escape the party boats. If you book a sport yacht with Biscayne Bay Lady Charters you can snorkel the underwater reefs, deep sea fish for marlin or sunbathe on the deck. Cruise the coastal mansions where celebrities live or leave the skyline behind and have the ocean all to yourself.
Hit the Beach early in the morning!
At this time, the students will still be sleeping!
