South of Fifth or "SoFi" as locals call it is an exclusive enclave located South of Fifth Street in South Miami Beach which is home to some of Miami Beaches' most expensive real estate. It is a small, vibrant and scenic destination in its very own right. This area features luxury waterfront condos along Government Cut and South Pointe Park.
South of Fifth, which is bordered by water on three sides, is a triangular shaped area comprised of less than two square miles. To the west you will find Biscayne Bay, a lagoon where you can still see Florida Manatees and Bottle-nosed Dolphins living in their natural habit. To the south is Government Cut, which serves as the gateway to the Port of Miami. And, lastly, to the east lies the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
The buildings that dot the southernmost part of South Beach are multi-million dollar high rises and are the first and second homes of wealthy businesspeople and quite a few big-name celebrities. These fortunate residents simply have to step outside their buildings and can bike, jog, run or walk to the beach or take a relaxing stroll through South Pointe Park's walkways and gaze at the exclusive Fisher Island, downtown Miami, Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
If great food is what you are searching for, search no more. Restaurants such as DeVito's Taverna Opa, Smith & Wollensky and the legendary Joe's Stone Crab serve locals and tourists alike.
If you are unfamiliar with the area and want to explore the southernmost part of the city like a local, book a room at the Bentley Beach Resort on Ocean Drive, jog in South Pointe Park and dine at Joe's Takeaway. We promise that you will return to live in this tranquil oasis.
