For a quiet time by the water, be sure to head for the southern tip of the beach and out along the South Pointe Pier. The beaches of South Pointe are worth the short walk for a very tranquil setting. Great for a quiet afternoon at the beach with a good book and a good bottle of chardonnay.
Walk out of your apartment and just cross the street for some Yoga in the park. Join Sandra, who runs sessions every Monday and Wednesday evening at 6pm. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Join her group for outdoor Yoga under a tree and if your lucky, you might get a tropical rainfall that adds to the great experience of yoga in the park.

Will On SoBe – April 2013
No extended second home visit to Florida’s “Gold Coast” can be complete without rewarding yourself to some great Atlantic fishing. The experience of being out on the open water looking inland at the Miami skyline will be one you won’t soon forget.
South Beach’s, South Point Marina has a boat that goes out daily but I prefer making the short trip to climb aboard the Kelley Fleet on 108th street. These guys have been at it since 1957 when Captain George Kelley started his fleet of full service leisure fishing vessels.
Go to their website, www.miamibeachfishing.com/index.htm and print or mention the coupon offer. For a mere $38.00 you will be treated to a rewarding day of fishing the great Miami waters. Check their schedule, but I like the 1:45pm departure time.
Conveniently close to South Beach, take Collins Avenue (A1A) North to 108th street, pull over to your left or Bay side into the Haulover Park Marina, one of the few free parking lots on the beach.
Don’t forget to send us a picture of your big catch. Here’s mine.
One of my favorite restaurants on Lincoln Road Mall has to be the Van Dyke Cafe, located at 846 Lincoln Road on the corner of Jefferson Avenue. From the same purveyors of the famous News Cafe on Ocean Drive, The Van Dyke Cafe, offers up a great vantage point for some serious people watching in a charming European setting.
Happy hour is a great time to give them a try, Monday through Friday from 5-7:00 pm. In my opinion, you won’t find a better plate of fried calamari on the beach. ($6.00)
I love this place early in the morning, for coffee and a light breakfast, but if you are a lover of live Blues and Jazz, head upstairs for some great nightly performances. You are sure to have a great time here, but drinks will run you about $14 each outside of happy hour.
Happy Hour Specials: mojitos $6, fried calamari $6, draft beer $3, Sangria $4
For a game of table tennis or, “ping-pong”, as it is known head to Chalk Lounge, at 1234 Washington Avenue. Table tennis, with a Miami twist of LED lights that make everything light up in bright neon, in this nightclub setting with DJ’s spinning great tracks when the built in wireless jukebox isn’t playing.
They have 7 Olympic standard ping pong tables, 5 billiard tables, and timeless classics like Connect Four and Checkers. It’s a fun place for a night out, and they have a great collection of International beers.
