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.
Known as Florida’s largest urban park, this popular state park overlooks Biscayne Bay, offering miles of off-road bicycle trails as well as mangrove forest preserves that beckon canoeists and kayakers.
At Acqualina’s signature restaurant, AQ Chop House by Il Mulino, modern steakhouse fare meets traditional Italian flavors under the guiding hand of Executive Chef Michele Mazza. The decor harkens back to European mid-century design.
Channeling a European day spa, Acqualina Resort’s on-site, full-service spa takes a more holistic approach to wellness. Your visit begins with a selection of restorative and meditative treatments for the face and body. Be sure to leave time to visit the relaxation lounge, where the walls are lined with Himalayan salt.
Sunny Isles enjoys a pleasantly warm climate year-round, with average summer temperatures in the low 80s and average winter temperatures in the low 70s. 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.
