Miami Bachelorette Party Ideas and Themes
Park yourselves in South Beach for the ultimate Miami bachelorette experience. Then it's up to you what bachelorette activities in Miami to choose to please your bride. There's something for every fun-loving bride squad, so narrowing down your choices might be a bit tough. Don't forget, whatever Miami bachelorette theme you choose, you can outfit everyone in bach-appropriate attire.
For Fun in the Sun
Miami has some of the most beautiful beaches on this side of the U.S., with white-sand shores and crystal-blue waters. Park yourselves in a cabana on the beach, or poolside with drink services at the luxe hotels in the area. You can also set sail on the water for a day at sea that includes snorkeling, fly above it all on a parasail adventure, or take an LED-powered paddle board tour at night.
For the Artists
If you came to Miami for its prolific art scene (the city plays host to Art Basel every summer), consider spending your days exploring the beautiful beachfront architecture and galleries before hitting up Miami's epic night life. If you want to be sure you see the best there is on offer, book an Art Deco walking tour so you can be guided to the best sites.
For the Foodies
Beaches, art, and restaurants and bars are the DNA of Miami. If you came for the latter, you won't be disappointed. Michelin-starred chefs have plenty of outposts here, including Thomas Keller and Daniel Bouloud. Plus you can't miss Little Havana for some authentic Cuban food (pro tip: take a tour to try the best bites). Plus, Miami's nightlife is only rivaled by Vegas, with famous spots including LIV, Mango's, and Basement.
Miami Bachelorette Party Itinerary and Activities
Want to fit everything into one perfect weekend? It's entirely possible with our three-day Miami bachelorette itinerary. Just take a look at everything the city has to offer in just a few days:
Morning: You're probably hungry after traveling to Miami, so get the day started with breakfast at Morgan's. The brunch menu includes house-made sticky buns, the Frenchman Sandwich (fried eggs with boursin cheese, among other ingredients), and the brioche French toast. Everything you'll need to fuel up for the weekend ahead.
Afternoon: Head over to Hyde Beach for Retreat Fridays (tickets must be purchased in advance). The pool party includes snacks from the grill, a live DJ, and plenty of cocktails—the quintessential Miami experience to get your weekend started on the right foot.
Evening: Start the evening with drinks at Sweet Liberty where you can sample craft cocktails in a retro-chic spot. Then it's off to a bachelorette dinner just down the street at the Mandrake. Try to snag a seat outside and enjoy the balmy Miami night with a delicious French-Indochine fusion menu, including dishes like fried rice XO sauce, shrimp & scallop wontons, and a sushi platter to share among yourselves. Your first evening out, head to the Basement, where your night can include everything from dancing to a live DJ or band and cosmic bowling.
Morning: You must make your way to brunch at The Palace, where you'll get to partake in one of their famous Drag Show Brunches starting at 11 a.m. (make a reservation, spots fill up fast). The unlimited mimosa brunch comes second to the high-energy performances you'll get to watch—a super fun way to start your day.
Afternoon: Take the afternoon to rest up before a night on the town by visiting the spa at the Miami Beach Edition. Along with a full spa menu of services including massages, facials, and more, you can relax on daybeds and enjoy the hotel's lap pool.
Evening: Grab drinks at The Broken Shaker, a laid back outdoor oasis serving up award-winning handcrafted cocktails. The vibe here is so chill, you may forget about your dinner reservation at Sugarcane. The menu includes crudos, sushi, sashimi, and small plates for sharing. Then it's off to enjoy more of Miami's renowned nightlife. Two spots to check out include SHOTS and LIV.
Morning/Afternoon: It's time to hit one of Miami's most well-known spots, Nikki Beach, for the beloved "Amazing Sundays Brunch." From 11 to 4 every Sunday, feast on international cuisine, cocktails and champagne, and dance barefoot in the sand. If you're feeling like pampering yourselves, book the Forever Young Daybed Package, which includes brunch for 4, a pitcher of mojitos, and a bottle of rose.
Evening: Have an earlier dinner at the chic and admittedly girly Swan restaurant, which looks like it was practically designed for bachelorette parties. The menu is just as delicious as the decor, with dishes like king crab tempura, caviar pasta, duck a l'orange, and truffle frites. Eat up, because next you're heading out on the water with a VIP Miami Yacht Rental for a boujee afternoon along the coast. You'll get complimentary drinks on your party bus on the way to the dock, following by a cruise that includes a DJ and open-air dancefloor. Back on the party bus, you'll be driven to the nightclub of your choice. We recommend ending the weekend at E11EVEN, a 24-hour nightclub with a lot of high energy that often has surprise A-List DJs lead the party.

Expert Miami Travel Tips
There are plenty of nonstop options on a quick 3-3 1/2 hour flight to Miami from NYC on Delta, JetBlue, and American, in addition to nonstop options from LA on a 5-hour flight with Spirit, Delta, JetBlue, or American. When visiting Miami, aim for the spring or early summer if possible. March and May are excellent months to visit when the temperatures are warm, but not too humid. Miami is a bit spread out, so renting a car is definitely a great option. Although they do have ridesharing programs and public transportation.
