Where to anchor

Fisher Island: One of my favourite anchorages is just south of Fisher Island, and not far from Virginia Key. It’s a choice spot to drop the hook as it’s usually in the lee, has a panoramic view of downtown Miami and there is easy access to the ocean, making it one of the best toy-friendly destinations.

Nixon Beach: Located just offshore from the former winter White House compound on the west side of Key Biscayne is Nixon Beach — in fact, a one-acre helipad still exists from the Nixon days. With crystal clear water made for swimming and a nearby sandbar that’s perfect for a stroll during low tide, you will feel secluded from the hustle and bustle but still close enough to tender in for the art fairs.
