Romantic Places to Propose in Miami Beach
This Valentine’s Day, Miami Beach could take on additional significance for you if you decide it’s the time and place you want to pop the question. Our island city is filled with amazing places to stage an epic and romantic marriage proposal. Make that milestone moment all the more meaningful and find a spot that reflects you and your partner’s personality. To help you choose the optimal backdrop, and get your wedding planning off on the right foot, we’ve compiled a list of the most romantic places to propose in Miami Beach.
On the Beach
The idea of a beach proposal is simple, but timeless and true! Ask that oh-so-important question during the morning sunrise as it peeks over the ocean. There are fewer people up when the sun is rising, which makes for a more intimate proposal experience. Plus, doing the proposal in the morning leaves the rest of the day fit for celebration. At The Sagamore, the beach is our backyard, so you can easily visit the shore during off-peak hours.
South Pointe Park
The 17-acre park on the southernmost tip of Miami Beach is always teeming with passerby, so scope out the park beforehand to pick out a specific spot to propose. Whether it’s the park’s 450-foot pier, beach, open green space, or winding path overlooking Fisher Island, PortMiami’s cruise ships, and Downtown Miami, surrounded by the ocean can be a prime place to prompt a proposal. Celebrate afterwards with a dinner at Smith & Wollensky, one of the only waterfront restaurants in Miami Beach.
Above the Ocean on a Parasailing Adventure
There’s nothing quite like a Miami Beach proposal; such a monumental question in one of the most beautiful cities in the world! See the entire scope of the city’s beauty by proposing to your sweetheart from hundreds of feet above the shoreline. Experience the heart-pumping thrills of parasailing with a romantic ride through the air with one of Miami Beach’s parasailing companies, of which the city offers many. Adventurous couples are sure to remember the unforgettable ride for the rest of their lives.
The shaded oasis is in the middle of downtown Miami Beach is only steps from The Sagamore. The green, landscaped gathering space is embellished with a veil of veitchia palms and spectacular trellis structures (that mimic the cottony clouds of Miami’s skies) overgrown with bright pink bougainvillea. Public outdoor events like movie screenings and New World Symphony concerts can make your proposal even more dreamier.
At a Romantic Restaurant
White tablecloths are classy, but a proposal doesn’t have to be done at the closest Michelin-starred restaurant. Some of our favorite romantic eateries include A Fish Called Avalon, Casa Tua, Chotto Matte, and Cecconi’s (they even a ‘Proposal Table’, which features an authentic Italian meal prepared by Executive Chef Sergio Sigala that includes a la carte plates that are perfect for sharing). Juvia dishes out special multi-course menus for lovebirds on Valentine’s Day and during their nightly sunset dinner which includes a welcome glass of SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco. The rooftop dining room is one of the most romantic spots in all of Miami Beach, complete with lush vertical gardens and panoramic views of South Beach and beyond.
Miami Beach Botanical Garden
The 3-acre paradise near the Convention Center in Miami Beach has plenty of secluded spots that are surrounded by subtropical plants from around the world. Exotic flowers, trees (like the Rainbow Eucalyptus), butterflies, and local wildlife set the scene, while areas like the Japanese Garden, Edible Garden, and Butterfly Garden are tranquil spaces to pop the question. Best of all, general admission to Miami Beach Botanical Garden is always free.
