Beach and Boardwalk
Boasting the largest beach of any Miami resort, you will have plenty of privacy at the Fontainebleau. Wait staff will keep you comfortable with food and beverages on the beach. Umbrellas, chairs, cabanas, parasailing and jet skis are available for rent, right on the beach. Complimentary sand pails and shovels are available so your children can build sandcastles. The resort is on the boardwalk, so you can walk to a number of nearby restaurants, and if you are ambitious, walk a little further to South Beach for more dining & shops.
Explore Tropical Flora & Fauna
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is worth a visit if you love beautiful gardens. The path is easy to navigate, and you’ll walk alongside ponds and lakes as you stroll through the gardens of tropical plants, towering palms, cycads, flowering trees, vines and fruit trees.
Experience Exotic Wildlife
The Everglades is full of gators, egrets and other exotic creatures. A little more than one hour from the hotel and you will be immersed in the famous jungle swamp. Bike trails, walking trails and airboat rides all are good ways to traverse the everlasting glades! For those who like a little entertainment with your wildlife, try Parrot Jungle to see gators, jungle cats and birds. The shows are terrific and well worth the price of admission.
