South Beach

It’s not a huge surprise that South Beach is one of the best places to propose in Miami. Our recommendation? Stay at one of the luxurious hotels on South Beach like the 1 South Beach, The Betsy, or the W South Beach, and enjoy the private beach access that gets you away from the crowds. You can also visit the beach during off-peak hours (on a weekday or early in the morning) for a more intimate and private proposal experience, or just take a stroll around the neighborhood, admiring the famous Art Deco architecture.

Matheson Hammock Park

If South Beach is not your scene, you can still have an amazing beachfront proposal in a more private setting. We love the beach and atoll pool at Matheson Hammock, located in the Coral Gables area. This is the perfect quiet beach for lounging or, if you’re the adventurous types, you can rent kayaks or standup paddleboards and pop the question afterwards. Celebrate with a picnic on the beach or a delicious meal at the waterside Red Fish Grill (perhaps with family waiting to surprise you!).

The Ancient Spanish Monastery – St. Bernard de Clairvaux

Looking for a Miami proposal idea that combines history and architectural beauty? Check out the incredible Spanish architecture of this monastery, which was built in the year 1133 AD in Spain, and then dismantled, moved to Miami, and reassembled in the mid-20th century. You’ll admire the breathtaking stone work, and find lots of hidden spots for a private proposal. If you’re planning on bringing a professional photographer to capture the moment, note that there is a fee for professional photography, and you’ll have to check with the monastery in advance.

If you're considering where to propose in Miami, restaurants are always a safe bet (you certainly don’t want to pop the question on an empty stomach) and this Italian restaurant, located on Biscayne Boulevard has incredible water views (sit on the outdoor balcony, if possible) and cuisine that will make you feel like you’ve been transported to Rome. Yes, it’s on the pricier side, but for a totally luxe proposal, it’s worth it!
