Like Ponce de León, you’re on track for a world-changing discovery: On Saturday travel to where 182nd Street meets Collins Avenue, then trek east 45 paces.
The X marking this spot? Bella Beach Club.
By day, the oasis behind Trump Towers lures shore-loungers with white wicker chairs and daybeds outfitted with canopies and plush teal cushions. Sip rosé shipped from St. Tropez beneath umbrellas, or dine on Mediterranean-style grilled fish, lobster, caviar, and raw bar bites at the sand-underfoot restaurant.
Come nightfall, relive the old-school days (Nikki Beach, The Raleigh’s Sunday soirees) with sets from Dr. Love and DJ Indigo, or class it up with the occasional flutist or singer. Welcome dusk with after-work gatherings on Fridays. And take in the constellations at monthly full moon parties.
Let the North Star guide you home.
Bella Beach at Trump Towers, 18001 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles (305-692-5777 or bellabeachclub.com). Official opening party, Saturday, 2 p.m.
