When gazing at the aptly named Magic City from the seat of a helicopter thousands of feet in the air, this city morphs into a different beast entirely! Once airborne, Miami and its crystal waters look just like a scene from a movie. A FlyNYON Miami helicopter tour is an unforgettable experience, and best of all, you’ll have the opportunity to take amazing pictures to prove it! There are a plethora of places to visit, just take a look at our list below!
South Pointe is a park and beach at the southernmost point of South Beach. Thanks to its location, it offers breathtaking panoramic views of Fisher Island, Biscayne Bay, Downtown Miami, and the Atlantic Ocean. It is also complemented by a rustic boardwalk. Fortunately for fliers, South Beach parties don’t extend to this location, rendering it a rather tranquil spot to fly over. When viewed from a helicopter seat, the bird’s eye view of this public park become all the more spectacular.
The Venetian Pool is a historic public swimming pool, built in 1923 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Widely considered the crowning glory of the quaint little town of Coral Gables, this pool seeps unique features found nowhere else: Spanish porticos, artesian wells, picturesque waterfalls and glorious fountains. All these quality make for a perfect airborne photo op! Watch as pool goers splish-splash about, dip in and out of the grottos, and enjoy the immense pool. The verdant foliage surrounding the pool make it seem as if it were ripped right out of an exotic locations magazine, but luckily for riders, the Venetian Pool is right smack-dab in the middle of Miami-Dade County, Florida!
Bal Harbour is situated at the northern tip of the Miami Beach. A virtually microscopic town with a population of less than 3,000 people, this village offers a respite from the raging metropolis of Miami. Situated next to the sea, riders can watch as fleets of boats disembark from the town’s marina, effortlessly drifting amidst the deep blue sea. Take a gander at the rolling waves and feel the sea salt breeze caress your face while gliding through the air, or face inland and marvel at the opulent sky high residences, bedecked with open air penthouse pools!
Famous world round, the town of Hollywood is known for its iconic beach and multitude of restaurants. However, fame comes at a cost, and that cost is crowdedness during its peak seasons. Crowded as it might be, it remains one of the most immaculate and most agreeable beaches in the entirety of Florida. Whilst on the wing, the view is second to none; watch as tourists mill about the boardwalk, and beach goers play where the sand meets the sea.
Stretching over a mile long, the natural Atlantic beachfront on this beach has been ranked many times as one of the top beaches in the U.S.–and they’re not wrong. Boasting the oldest structure in the south, Cape Florida Light, built in 1825, this is a sight to see! Also lining the coast are eight fishing platforms, lending a quaint feel to this already lovely beach. A further bit inland, eighteen covered pavilions protect pedestrians from inclement weather and make for lovely spots to host a picnic under.
Also known as Villa Vizcaya, this estate emanates grandiosity. Palatial in size, the estate grounds holds an extensive Italian Renaissance garden, a village area, and is flanked by a marvelous tropical woodland forest. Villa Vizcaya hugs the Biscayne Bay, making it a much coveted area for weddings and other formal celebrations. From the seat of the helicopter, enjoy this feast for the eyes, as a lush subtropical environment, radiant orchids and majestic fountains keep you on the edge of your seat!
