Spring Break 2021 Information

The Message is Clear, Vacation Responsibly or Be Arrested

Spring break in Miami Beach may be one of the great rites of passage, but only if you plan on following the rules. Otherwise, you might as well just stay home and save yourself the court costs and damage to your reputation.  To anyone who plans to visit our urban resort this year, you should know that Miami Beach has a rich history of welcoming the world to our beautiful backyard. We want you to make lasting memories of our turquoise water, white sandy beaches and endless summers.

But we have zero tolerance for public drunkenness, street fights, theft of any kind and illegal drug use. That simply puts our visitors and residents at risk of serious injury, or worse.

Each year, our beaches welcome millions of guests from around the world, most of whom vacation responsibly. We ask you to keep our beaches and streets free from litter, excessive alcohol, loud music and behavior that puts others at risk during your visit.  This means following the rules from the time you arrive until the time you leave, hopefully after visiting our world-class restaurants, bars and cultural institutions. Below are the rules to follow:

Please be aware that in Miami Beach:

  • Drinking alcohol in public is arrestable
  • Smoking marijuana is arrestable
  • Driving under the influence (DUI) is arrestable
  • Driving a scooter in and out of vehicular traffic or on sidewalks is illegal

Prohibited on the beach:

  • Inflatable devices
  • Tents, tables and similar structures
  • Loud music
  • Coolers
  • Glass containers
  • Styrofoam and plastic straws

Practice COVID-19 safety protocols:

  • Wear your mask
  • Practice social distancing
