Miami's Best Swimming Holes

View as Map

You come to Miami for the beach, right? Well, sort of. If you really wanted the beach, you'd go somewhere that has a beach and not much else, like Fort Lauderdale for example (we kid, we kid). No, you come to Miami to sit at the beach, or pool, or hot tub, or whatever, and look at everyone else doing the same thing. You're at your chosen swimming hole, wearing next to nothing, drinking, chatting, flirting, partying, dancing, sizing up the competition, and basically doing everything hedonistic and nefarious that has long made coming here, or living here, such a drop-dead fabulous thing to do. It's what makes life worth living, baby.

Well, Curbed Miami has put together 13 of the best spot around town to do just that. Only a few are beaches, but there are so many other great swimming places that we hardly saw the point. You might not see it either, when you check out our map of Miami's Best Swimming Holes, after the jump.
