Top 5 Instagrammable Places in South of Fifth (SoFi)
Fill your 'gram with snaps of an unparalleled beach lifestyle right on the white sandy stretches of South of Fifth, South Beach's residential paradise and one of Miami Beach's best-kept secrets!
Occupying the southern tip of Miami Beach, stretching southward from 5th Street to the bayfront at beautiful South Pointe Park, wedged between the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay, and Government Cut, is the neighborhood of South of Fifth, or SoFi, as locals lovingly call it.
Boasting a more relaxed and peaceful vibe amidst the continuous stimulation found further north, SoFi features impressive high-rise condo towers, low-rise residences, and restored Art Deco buildings at every corner, along with stretches of white, sugary sand, turquoise water lapping the shore, and tall palm trees swaying in the breeze that serves as a welcome pause from the fast-paced SoBe lifestyle.
So if you prefer a beach destination with a more family-friendly, low-key scene without sacrificing easy access to the fun chaos of South Beach and Miami Beach's top Instagram hotspots, needless to say, SoFi is the REAL DEAL!
Here are the top five Instagrammable places in South of Fifth (SoFi).
