10 Soul-Soothing Spots in Miami That Prioritize Wellness (…Other Than the Ocean)

To borrow a line from Will Smith, Miami is known as the place where the heat is on. As in fiery temperatures (obviously), but also the best beaches, music scene, and some seriously incredible cuisine—she's the whole shebang. Not so surprising: The city's wellness scene is stellar, too.

From the highest-vibe workouts in every category to blissed-out spas, and some of the best lattes, fresh-squeezed juices, and cocktails (or mocktails), Miami is loaded with soul-soothing wellness-centric spots that are a must-see for your next trip. Find a few of our favorites ahead!

Miami's sweetest spots to eat, sleep, sweat, and play

Good Sleep

1 Hotel South Beach

With three different pools on site and its own private beach, there’s no shortage of ways to make a splash at the 1 Hotel in South Beach. Snag yourself something delicious at the lobby farmstand, which is stocked with picks from local farmers and suppliers, on your way to getting an Insta-worthy blowout at the hotel's open, airy Salotto Salon. Food highlight: Habitat, with organic eats and farm-to-table vibes courtesy of Miami chef Jose Mendin. Get the avocado tartine with pumpkin romesco; you won't be disappointed.

Good Food


Start your day right with a pitaya bowl complete with mango, banana, strawberry, and MCT oil, or enjoy a Light and Breezy cocktail for a poolside happy hour while soaking in ocean views at this bright, beachside café. Looking for a midday pick-me-up? The watermelon poké with macadamia is next-level.


With seasonal vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and Paleo options on the menu, DIRT is a one-stop shop for anyone with some sort of dietary restriction. Its Summer Adashah Plate with edamame mashed potatoes is a must—so is the house-made citrus vinaigrette it's served with.


With more than 200 organic ingredients in-store, this is *the* place to snag a juice or superfood smoothie post-spin class. Keeping processed ingredients, unnecessary sugars, and GMOs out of its offerings, you’ll get clean eats every time that'll stave off belly bloat before hitting the beach.

Della Test Kitchen

If you’re big on bowls, this is your spot. Open at noon every day for lunch and dinner service, this Wynwood find is all about giving diners the option to customize their meals with add-ins like avocado, raw roots (carrot, beat, jicama), marinated kale, and ripe plantains (among other options).

Good Sweat

Spartan Gym

Enter Spartan Gym through its oversized industrial steel door, and you’ll be greeted by 14,000 square feet of turf, battle ropes, plyo boxes, and rowers. Private and group training sessions are open to people of all fitness levels—also, 1 Hotel guests get to sweat for free because the workout facility, an offshoot of the endurance races of the same name, is housed in the hotel.

Good Times

Lapis Spa

With rooms modeled after the hammams of Marrakech, the Lapis Spa at the iconic Fountainbleau Hotel is a must-see on our list. Treat yourself to an ocean-inspired wrap then de-stress in the mineral pool, steam, or visit its rain rooms.

Art Deco Walking Tour

Besides its sandy shores, South Beach is probably best known for its Art Deco architecture, namely classic hotels like The Webster, The Carlyle, and The McAplin. The neighborhood is a U.S. historic district, and you can learn about its backstory while sipping your favorite cocktail. Or, opt to learn about one of the city’s most culturally diverse neighborhoods on a walking tour of Little Havana and snag some flavorful eats along the way. Cubanos, anyone?

Walk South Pointe Pier

Located on the southern-most tip of Miami, the pier is part of a 17-acre park. Home to small cafés, restaurants, and an observation deck, it's the perfect place to snag sunset and sunrise photos.

SoSUP Key Biscayne

What’s a trip to the beach if you don’t make it out on the water, right? Rent everything from stand up paddleboards and pedal boats to bikes, beach chairs, and umbrellas at this sports store, which is located next door to Miami's Seaquarium in the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park.
