Miami and its location create beautiful settings for spending a romantic holiday. Wander on the beach, watch the sunset, walk hand in hand, and fall in love.

And lots of other places to kiss and cuddle or just be romantic!
Here is a list of some places where you might want to set up a romantic picnic or have a full moon walk with your dear:
South Pointe Park
South Pointe is a park and a beach at the southernmost point of South Beach. Thanks to its location, it offers panoramic views of Fisher Island, Biscayne Bay, Downtown Miami, and the Atlantic Ocean. And the parties of South Beach don't reach this spot. Come with your partner, family or a dog, this beach-park combination is a place for you. Most of the tourists haven't found this place, so it leaves you a plenty of place to enjoy the day or the evening in this relatively small park and clean beach. Parking here might be a problem, which is what keeps the masses of people from coming here.
The Venetian Pool
Venetian Pool is a historic, public swimming pool, built in 1923 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The pool has amazing features you don't find elsewhere - Spanish porticos, caves, waterfalls and fountains which definitely make this place worth visiting. Spend a sunny and romantic afternoon swimming in the caves and enjoying the big pool that doesn't feel crowded even with large amount of people in it. Be aware that even though being public, there's an entrance admission, which however is worth every penny.
Sit under a tree, have a picnic, read a book or have some sparkling wine while watching sailboats and windsurfers drift by. Or attend a free yoga for children Miami
-class on Saturday mornings here! There's also a covered playground for kids. The park offers a possibility for all sorts of activities from beach volley to frisbee-golf. If you prefer to avoid crowds, come here on weekday, grab a lunch from Fresh Market and enjoy the day with your loved one.

Hollywood Beach Boardwalk
Come here to enjoy a day or even better a night. If you're not in the mood for lying on the beach or going roller-skating, kick off your sandals and take a moonlight
walk in the soft and clean sand. As its name reveals, this beach and its restaurants may get crowded sometimes. Despite that, it remains as one of the cleanest and enjoyable beaches of the city.
Bill Baggs State Park
Savor for over a mile of natural Atlantic beachfront in this beach which many times is ranked as one of the best beaches in US.
