Sunny Isles Beach is just 20 miles north of downtown Miami—but it feels a world away. Nestled  between the flowing Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean on a narrow, sandy strip of land, Sunny Isles makes for the perfect family-friendly beach escape from the hustle and bustle of Miami. Explore local green spaces, including Town Center Park, or go scuba-diving and snorkeling just off the coast. At the family-friendly Acqualina Resort & Spa, you can sunbathe on powdery white sand, enjoy a candlelight dinner on the beach, or lounge poolside beneath the resort’s signature red umbrellas.

However, the thermometer can and does soar into the 90s throughout the year, even hitting triple digits with some regularity in August. June and July are the rainiest months, but showers usually pass quickly.
