Picture this: you’ve said your “I Do’s” and are headed to your long-awaited honeymoon. For your first trip together as husband and wife, you’ve decided a bit of sun and sand are in order – so you’ve booked two Florida-bound plane tickets and a stay at the perfect honeymoon hotel in Miami. You arrive, hand-in-hand, ready to relax and have a bit of fun, but are unsure of what to do next.
Enter: this guide to a Romantic Honeymoon in Miami. Discover our top six activities in the Magic City for an idyllic stay with your Mr. or Mrs.
1. Savor the Romance
Brunch is always a good idea – especially on your honeymoon. Work brunch in Coral Gables into the schedule for a chance to enjoy a slow morning, incredible food and a charming setting. From Buttermilk Pancakes with Mango Butter at Mamey, to Tiramisu Waffles at L’artisane Creative Bakery, an entirely vegan French bakery, you’ll discover no shortage of brunch options in Coral Gables.
Keep the good eats going with a lively Happy Hour along with Live Music at Mamey on 3rd – a rooftop bar with sweeping views of Coral Gables. Enjoy Happy Hour daily, from 3 – 6 pm, with Live Music from Thursday through Sunday between 6 – 10 pm.
Then, greet the evening with an intimate dinner at Orno, where Chef Niven Patel brings New American cuisine to life in a flavorful celebration of farm-to-table dining.
2. Unwind During A Couples Spa Day
After many long days of wedding planning, the events leading up to your wedding and the big day, odds are you’re pretty exhausted. Schedule a Miami massage and spa day at the Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove for an exclusive couples treatment. A personalized experience, using a variety of techniques from hot stone to deep muscle massage, will be curated for each person, focused on their individual needs. You can even extend your day of relaxation with a facial or beauty treatment.
3. Take A Day Trip to Biscayne Bay
Just 45 minutes from THesis Hotel, Biscayne Bay features turquoise waters, colorful aquatic life and picturesque islands to explore. Set out on a day trip with your swim suits and goggles in tow for hours of fun in the water. Experience Biscayne Bay snorkeling at its finest when you explore the underwater paradise around Boca Chita Key or Stillstville. For an above-water option, kayak under canopies of mangrove trees, while keeping your eyes peeled for dolphins, manatees and more!
4. Stroll Through A Botanic Garden Paradise
Few activities are more romantic than a leisurely stroll, hand-in-hand. Enjoy incredible scenery during your walk at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, one of the most well-known botanical gardens in Miami, or Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, a historic villa with a sprawling estate. At Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, discover Aquatic Exhibits, Arid and Succulent Collections and even a butterfly garden at the Wings of the Tropics exhibition. At Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, take a trip back in time to Miami during the Gilded Age. Wander through formal gardens and mangroves, then step inside the villa and take in breathtaking artwork and Mediterranean-style architecture.
5. Embrace Your Inner Chef With A Miami Cooking Class
For many, marriage means more shared meal times. Take a cooking class in Miami with your loved one to learn a new recipe or cooking technique for those date nights-in. Discover just how many ways you can incorporate beer into your recipes or how to hand-make pasta. Try a Modern French Pastry Class or uncover a world of flavor with an Asian Street Foods Class. Book your next cooking class at TasteBuds Kitchen in Miami and start whisking away!
6. Take in a Sunset at Matheson Hammock Park
White sand beaches and swaying palm trees await at Matheson Hammock Park. Bring a picnic and watch the sunset fade to pink and red and yellow as sailboats bob on tranquil open water. If you’re hoping to spend more time here, consider hitting one of the bike trails that winds through the park or simply lounging in the sun on the beach.
