No shoes, no shirt, no problem: Miami Beach has plenty of bathing-suit-friendly eateries mere steps from the surf. At the tiny, outdoor counter-service La Sandwicherie 229 14th St.; 305-532-8934), located in an easy-to-pass-by alley, it’s the special Dijon-mustard-based vinaigrette dressing that makes the more than 30 sandwiches special. Order the Napoli on French bread (pictured above).

La Piaggia (1000 S. Pointe Dr.; 305-674-0647) has the feel of a St. Tropez beach club—it even has a pool. Snag a table on the sand and order le cheeseburger frîtes accompanied by a bottle of the house rosé wine.

Smoothie and juice bar Pura Vida (110 Washington Ave.; 305-535-4142) is where hard bodies come for their açai bowls, protein shakes, egg whites and wheatgrass shots. The less stringent can choose from espresso, bagels and traditional sandwiches.

The views of Biscayne Bay from nautical-themed Monty’s Sunset (300 Alton Rd.; 305-672-1148) are as much of an attraction as the live music, fresh raw bar, conch fritters, fried shrimp, mojitos and piña coladas.

The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach’s relaxed DiLido Beach Club (1 Lincoln Rd.; 786-276-4000) is an idyllic spot to watch passersby on the boardwalk. Tropical cocktails (try the tequila-based Chili-Rita) and the mahimahi sandwich are the key things to order. At Italian gelato chain Gelateria 4D (500 S. Pointe Dr.; 305-538-5800), try a smooth, fluffy scoop of a popular flavor like dulce de leche.
