6 Ways to Celebrate Your Birthday in Miami
Rent a Beachside Apartment in Miami
If you fancy looking out to the beautiful Miami skylines and enjoying a sophisticated brunch for your birthday, then why not rent a Miami beachside apartment for the day?! It’s the perfect escape and if you are like me and prefer a low key celebration, then this is a nice way to entertain and then hit the beach for sunset cocktails. Check out websites like AirBnB and SobeVillas to rent a seaside escape.
If you are hosting pals in the apartment, curate light bites like homemade smoked salmon, avocado and sourdough toast, or hire a private chef to add a touch of exclusivity to your event!
Charter a Yacht
It’s certainly bound to be an unforgettable and incredible day out with your best friends if you charter your very own yacht in Miami. Rub shoulders with the rich and famous and feel like a celebrity for the day as you sail through Miami’s intercostal waterways. The captain and crew of your yacht will be able to take care of your every need and cater to your preferences.
You can even request birthday cakes, special food and champagne if you really want to treat yourself to the full VIP experience. Whether you head out on your beautiful boat for just a couple of hours, or you want to enjoy an overnight stay, there are so many options to choose from depending on the number of people in your party and your budget.
Discover Your Signature Scent at Taja Candles
If you have ever wondered what it is like to try a luxury experience and choose your very own signature scent, you need to try Taja Candles in Miami for your upcoming birthday. This is a unique, understated, yet boujee way to celebrate your year of birth, especially as there are dedicated staff members who can help you design the perfect candle that suits your personality perfectly.
You and your guests can walk away with a fun custom candle so your special day will be remembered for years!
Indulge in a Spa Day
Spa days are the ideal way to spend your birthday if you’re hoping to relax and unwind. If you don’t like stealing the spotlight a spa day is a great way to keep a chilled vibe whilst catching up with your favorite girlfriends. Most spas offer access to their pool and beachside areas, so when you call to make your appointment check to see if there are additional fees for resort access.
The Fontainebleau at Miami Beach is home to the Lapis spa, one of the more luxurious and relaxing places in the city. Take a dip in the pool or hop into the thermal baths for a detox and enjoy your birthday treat.
Enjoy a Birthday Brunch
I LOVE brunchy brunch. And discovering the best brunch spot in Miami and securing yourself a table is another great way to celebrate your upcoming birthday in style. Two of my Miami Beach Favorites, Cecconi’s or the Icebox Cafe, are popular choices amongst locals and tourists, so make sure you book a reservation in advance to avoid disappointment.
From avocado and eggs to delicious pancakes, your birthday brunch in Miami will be one to remember! Brunch is also the perfect excuse to order a couple of rounds of Mimosas, because, why not?!

If you’re the type of person who loves to get a little bit active and enjoy some golf related entertainment, then Top Golf or Putt Shack in Miami are the ideal birthday activities for you. Both have music, cocktails and a super laid back vibe that you can enjoy with your best friends. Even if you’re not the best golf player it’s a great way to break the ice, have a gossip and kick off the celebrations with a few drinks and a group activity.
