There is no shortage of beautiful beaches to choose from. Tip: Best time to go is a weekday at sunrise. There is a smaller crowd, it’s cooler and you will catch a breathtaking sunrise. Here are a few of our favorites.
SOUTH POINTE PARK, SOUTH BEACH - One of the most popular locations for any type of photo shoot for good reason. You have a picturesque park, pier, rocks and a vast beach dotted with colorful lifeguard stands.
HOLLYWOOD BEACH - A top destination for anyone. Very vintage feel on the broadwalk and quiet beach in the early morning. Great spot at Sunset because there are not too many tall buildings to block the sun.
SUNNY ISLES PIER - The beach is pretty crowded but if you don’t mind, you’ll get a beautiful view of the beach and buildings.
HALLANDALE BEACH - Our home beach is charming and beautiful. Lots of boutique hotels to use as backgrounds and quiet beach, especially at sunrise.

KEY BISCAYNE- Beautiful during the day and at night. During the day, you can catch the sunset and at night you have the background of the high rises in Brickell. You can also catch the sunrise or sunset depending on what side of the island your on.
