Things to do when visiting Coconut Grove

Known as “The Grove” to South Florida locals, the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami is bordered by the beautiful waters of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Boutiques, art galleries and waterfront restaurants make this a charming destination for travelers to discover.

Things To Do in “The Grove”

Aquatic Experiences
Coconut Grove offers some of the best sailing and water sports in the Miami area. Whether you’re visiting for the first time or the 51st time, you can’t go wrong with a day on the water.

* Sailing
With its protected location on Biscayne Bay, Coconut Grove is the perfect place to take a sailing lesson or practice your sailing skills. Dinner Key Marina is a perfect location to take a sunset sail with family and friends for fun day adventures and weekend getaways.

* Get Active on the water in Miami
Take off on a jet ski, fly high above the waves on a parasailing adventure or paddle across the bay on a kayak or stand-up paddleboard (SUP). Parasailing will give you a great perspective of Key Biscayne, Stiltsville, downtown Miami, Coral Gables and Fisher Island. If you’re into nature and sightseeing, a kayak or SUP is one of the best ways to view native plants and marine wildlife. Watersports in Miami are a great way to take in the area. Don’t miss the sunset and moonlight from the vantage point of a stand up paddleboard.

Dockside Dining
Lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch is always better with a waterfront view. Sail in and pull up to a dock at a variety of legendary restaurants in Coconut Grove.

Monty’s Coconut Grove – Located within walking distance of Dinner Key Marina, Monty’s Coconut Grove is a great little place to kick back and relax with a drink and happy hour specials.

Chart House Miami – The casual yet elegant Chart House Miami offers great views of Key Biscayne and Dinner Key Marina. Watch yachts sailing in and out of the marina while enjoying fresh seafood, beef and poultry selections.

Scotty’s Landing – Scotty’s Landing serves everything from burgers, sandwiches and salads to fish ‘n’ chips, crab cakes and Florida’s famous key lime pie. Popular with locals, this casual and laid-back eatery is located right on the water. Docks are available for those arriving by boat.

If Coconut Grove is a destination for you and you don’t own a boat (or your boat is docked somewhere far away), renting a boat to get the most out of your experience in “The Grove” is still a great option. With Boatsetter, it’s easy and affordable to book a privately-owned boat. You can even hire a licensed captain to help navigate the waters so all you have to do is show up dockside.

By the way, October 15th marks the start of stone crab season….if you’re headed to Coconut Grove, be sure to try one the South Florida delicacies.
