First, allow me to express how lucky I feel to call this diverse city home. On that note, I’m ashamed that it’s taken me so long to write a proper Miami blog!

I vow that this will be one of many blogs in Miami but first, let’s begin with 15 of the topmost Instagrammable spots in Miami.

Grab your camera and let’s go!

The landscape view of the Cape Florida Lighthouse is mesmerizing!

Within Bill Baggs State Park is the cylindrical, brick tower measuring at just under 100 feet (30 meters) tall. The lighthouse is an incredible Instagrammable spot in Miami. The view of the vast ocean and mangrove landscape from the top of the tower is perfection. If you dare to climb the spiral, iron staircase all the way to the top, you can live your best Disney’s Tangled moment. You wouldn’t want to miss it!

Next, located in the Italian renaissance neighborhood of Coral Gables, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is an ultra-photogenic staple of the city.

3 | South Pointe Park Pier & Beach

Unlike South Beach, South Pointe Beach is far less congested and is just as photogenic.

While visiting South Pointe Park and Beach, you’ll likely run into lots of local patrons either sunbathing, windsurfing, or running along the shore. The vibe is family-friendly and relaxing.

Furthermore, South Pointe Park is a great photography spot in Miami because from here, you can catch some of the most incredible sunrises I’ve ever seen. There are also those colorfully painted lifeguard houses perfect for an Instagram photo-op.

Also, South Pointe is the entry channel point to the Port of Miami. It’s not uncommon to see a half dozen cruise ships or mammoth container ships floating by gracefully. The panoramic views of the ocean, white sandy beach, and rocky pier make South Pointe Park a fantastic Instagrammable spot in Miami.

4 | Wynwood Arts District

Wynwood is my favorite neighborhood. It’s also a super Instagrammable spot in Miami!

Miami is a colorful city, and there is no place where that is more evident than in the Wynwood Arts District. Art is exhibited everywhere. From sidewalks to repurposed warehouses, floor to ceiling murals lives throughout this outdoor exhibit. Not only is Wynwood a dope place for photography, but it’s also a great place to hang out with friends and family at trendy restaurants, lounge bars, and galleries.

The art is ever-changing. Wynwood is one of those places you can visit over and over again, and you’re likely to find new murals each time. If you’re looking to capture one-of-kind, colorful photos, Wynwood should be at the top of your list of places to see in Miami.

Biking riding along Ocean Avenue is one of my favorite things to do in Miami.

What once was farmland, South Beach has become one of the most recognizable beaches in the world. It’s home to some of the world’s most renowned restaurants, hotels, and the most illustrious celebrity homes, making it arguably the most Instagrammable spot in Miami.

Whether you frequent during the day or night, South Beach is a great place for Instagram photos. I recommend renting a bike for the day. You can easily miss out on hidden photography gems while riding around in a car. Also, parking is notoriously expensive. The island could become cumbersome on foot, so biking, in my opinion, is the best, and most eco-friendly, option for easily getting around.

Visitor Info
Hours & Fees: Vary depending on exact place of interest. It’s completely free to walk strip and visit Lummus Park. Although, there are fees for parking your vehicle.
Location: 1130 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Bayside Marketplace is the heart of downtown Miami.

Throughout my adolescence, my family would bring me here to celebrate holidays, to enjoy Latin music festivals in the outdoor amphitheater, or to enjoy the delectable foods from its many restaurants and food stalls. Bayside is a total vibe!

If you’re curious to see the mansions of the stars, the Bayside dock is also where you can catch a mini yacht, which sails through the intercoastal waterways to the infamous Star Island. Views of the skyline are also best seen from the Bayside and American Airlines Arena surrounding areas. Whether you’re visiting during the day or evening, Bayside is a superb Instagrammable spot in Miami.
