I had an amazing time discovering Miami waters on board of an amazing Yacht. This time, my friends and I had the opportunity to rent a Sailo Boat to spend a few days on the water. It was really a great adventure that we definitely recommend to anyone who is exciting about trying different things. Miami has a lot to offer from sailing experiences, nightlife and so much more!
This is one of the beautiful beaches to be found in the USA because it is famous and allows access to all of the public. In my opinion it was good but the most impressive thing about it was seeing the helicopters of the armed forces of the United States and the most beautiful thing is the mixture of cultures, a fusion of Mexican, Dominican, Puerto Rican, and Cuban. It´s a great place, tell all the world it is beautiful and very expensive.
In a city famous for beach parties, this monument reminds us of one of the darkest chapters of human history. Amid the palms and modern avenues of Miami, this hand seems to stretch out of the ground asking for help. To get there you have to go through a small tunnel that will send chills up your spine. Quiet music plays and the walls are engraved with the names of thousands of victims of the Nazi Holocaust. The monument is sure to stir your emotions, and as you get closer you'll see clearly how it represents the victims of this terrible time.
About 20 miles down the coast from North Miami Beach, you can find over 250 nests of Caretta Loggerhead turtles. Trails in the sand show where the eggs are buried, so Florida's marine specialists place protective cones and signs to keep people away. On each sign you can see the date on which the particular nest was discovered, so you can work out when the eggs will hatch (from day 45 to day 60). Turtles are often born in the coolest time of the day, at night or very early morning. After discovering the nests we became obsessed with the idea, and came back regularly to watch and see if we might spot the baby turtles. One of the clues is to look at the top of the nest, which begins to sink when the turtles start heading out to sea.
I didn't get there in time to see the hatching, but as I approached the nest, I noticed that even though most of the turtles were already out, some had remained trapped in the sand. I gently took them one meter from the shore and left them to enter the sea. Sadly, because of marine predators and other problems, less than 1% of baby turtles survive. 3 days after the reptiles hatch, experts are responsible for making an inventory of the eggs. They note the number of eggs not fertilized, live turtles born and those who died inside. These animals weigh between 80 and 200 kg, approximately. I really loved this opportunity to share in a fascinating and unusual experience.
Haulover Beach is known for their sandbar where boaters come to hang out on nice days. The sandbar is really great fun and if you don't have a boat, no problem, just rent one at the Haulover Marina, located on the inlet side of Haulover Beach. On the ocean side you can find a popular nude beach (it's fenced off) next to the regular beach. Be on the look out for warning signs so you don't accidentally end up at the wrong beach! If you're trying to get rid of tan lines, this beach could be the perfect option for you :)
I've gone to the Haulover sandbar several times and its a great place to just anchor your boat and spend a day relaxing. Grab a tube and float or grab some frisbees or footballs because some parts are so shallow you can get a fun game going. Don't forget to bring a cooler of ice-cold drinks for a really fun day.
