Are you up with the sun? Don’t wait on others to start your South Beach day. Let your fellow travelers catch some Zs and take on the town. We’ve put together a list of early morning activities that are perfect for the solo traveler.

Watch the Sunrise from the Beach

Watching the sunrise over the Atlantic is a pretty magical experience. Take the short walk east from the Washington Park Hotel and through Lummus Park to the white sands of SoBe for the best views. Bring a towel and lounge out while watching surfers catch the waves. As the sky illuminates with beautiful shades of pinks and purples, snap a shot of the redesigned colorful lifeguard stands.

Grab a Cup of Cuban Coffee

Indulge in an authentic cup of Cuban coffee to kickstart your day. Las Olas Café and David’s Café Cafecito both open at 6 a.m. and serve up an indulgent cortadito and cafecito. For a complete list of places to get your morning pick-me-up, visit our catalog of SoBe Cuban Coffee favorites.

De-stress with Glow Hot Yoga

Start the day anew with an early morning workout session at South Beach’s Glow Hot Yoga studio - complimentary for Washington Park Hotel guests. Glow Hot Yoga has classes like Bikram and Hot Pilates starting as early as 7 a.m. If yoga isn’t your thing, visit our state-of-the-art fitness center to squeeze in a workout.

Walk the Miami Beach Boardwalk

For ocean and sand dune views on one side and stunning Art Deco architecture on the other, visit the Miami Beach Boardwalk for a peaceful early morning stroll. The elevated boardwalk runs north to south along the beach. Beginning at the southernmost point of Lummus Park, the boardwalk extends four miles north to Indian Beach Park. The oceanfront boardwalk also makes for an excellent morning jog route, as you can avoid vehicles and the larger mid-day crowds.

Tour the Art Deco District

Miami Beach’s famous Art Deco district is right outside Washington Park Hotel’s front door. Gorgeous buildings refurbished in pastel colors and artistic designs are plentiful and the morning light reflecting off of the Atlantic is the perfect time to view these illuminated works of art. Explore on your own with this smartphone-friendly map.
