It is essential to pick the absolute perfect spot for your soiree and to make sure that you can actually throw a party in the spot you choose! There are so many beaches in Miami that it may be hard to narrow down the options. Some beach spots may require permits, so it is best to plan ahead a little bit, or you can rent a place like the BG Oleta River Outdoor Center. They will even supply a bonfire, tiki torches, and s’mores!
Pick a Theme

Is your event going to be fruity drinks and catered appetizers or buckets of beer and grilled hot dogs? Deciding on the theme of your event will make it much easier to plan all of the food and drink options. Consider going all out with a full BBQ dinner which is a super easy thing to have catered to the beach. Just be sure to supply the appropriate utensils needed to accompany the food!
Entertain the Guests

Think about your entertainment options besides the obvious eating and drinking portion of the soiree. A volleyball net can be a fun way to entertain and work up an appetite if your party is taking place during the daylight hours. Another great option is a little live music, but you may need to check your permit, so you don’t incur any type of noise violations.
Take it Out Onto the Water
