Miami’s top independent newspaper confirms what Sunny Isles Beach has always known – that its elegant shoreline is the best The Magic City has to offer

Miami may be known across the globe for its miles of world-class beaches, but what many may not realize is that its best beach is actually in the community of Sunny Isles Beach. Take it from the citys beloved independent newspaper The Miami New Times, which recently ranked Sunny Isles Beachs sandy shores as the best slice of beachfront in the entire city. Clean and quiet,” describes the paper of Sunny Isles Beachs shores. Sunny Isles Beach is blessed with the softest white sand in Miami-Dade County.”

With a fully 35 miles of beachfront to choose from citywide, the Miami New Times accolades could not be more prestigious. But then again, Sunny Isles Beach has always stood out as Miamis most coveted shoreline – even if most folks didn’t know it.  After all, the beach is literally what the city is named after.

Stretching along the azure Atlantic for a modest 2.4 miles, what Sunny Isles Beach lacks in size, it more than compensates for sheer beauty.  Ringed by elegant, cutting-edge hotels and condominiums along Collins Avenue — with the Intracoastal just beyond — Sunny Isles Beach offers broad, breezy beaches light on crowds and heavy on pure enjoyment. The beachfront is connected to the rest of the city via William Lehman Causeway and courses along Collins Avenue from the northern endpoint of Haulover Park — ending at 195th Street.

Despite its true sense of serenity and luxury, the beaches at Sunny Isles Beach could not be more easily accessible and open to all. There are nearly two dozen entry points along Collins Avenue along with four public parking facilities — making Sunny Isles Beach one of Miamis easiest day trips from both South Beach and Downtown.

Although ideal for sun-bathing, sand castle-building and — of course – indulging in warm Atlantic waters, the beaches at Sunny Isles Beach offer far more. For zen-lovers, there are monthly guided full moon yoga and meditation classes at Samson Oceanfront Park. For thrill-seekers, rent jet-skis, boogie-boards, kayaks and paddle-boards at Sunny Isles Beach Watersports (which is located just behind the Trump International Beach Resort). And anglers can take a chance on scoring a prize catch at Newport Fishing Pier at the aptly-named Pier Park. This is Sunny Isles Beachs sole designated fishing spot and comes fully-equipped with showers, restrooms, beach access and public parking.

Mostly, whats best about Sunny Isles Beach are those pristine beaches – crowd free and casually-chic with well-trained life-guards and sophisticated locals who appreciate Sunny Isles Beachs elegant, low-key lifestyle. Sun-kisses almost entirely year-round, Sunny Isles Beach is a world-class resort town whose name literally speaks for itself. No wonder, Sunny Isles Beach offers the best beaches in all of Miami. This is something the city has known for years — and now confirmed by The Miami New Times. Standing as a haven for locals and tourists alike, Sunny Isles Beachs status as Miamis top beach destination could not be more official.
