Things to Do in Miami in August
Go snorkeling in the Keys
Take advantage of the clear waters and variety of aquatic life Florida has to offer by snorkeling in John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. Visitors have the option of swimming offshore, using a boat, or taking a tour. This state park was the first undersea park in the country, boasting over 178 nautical square miles of coral reefs, seagrass beds and swamps; an underwater playground for locals and tourists alike!
Visit the Miami Sandbar
Experience Miami the local way: hopping on a fun boat ride that’ll take you to the real party at Haulover sandbar. Enjoy a party beachside, with island music to dance to, cool beverages to drink, and your toes in the sand. It’ll feel like you have a whole island to yourself! The only way to get to Haulover is by boat, so it really feels intimate and fun. There will be a foodboat—another version of a food truck—that’ll offer delicious food and desserts. The boat can accommodate big parties, with the full experience starting at $800 for 6 people, for 4 hours.
