What's the Weather Like in Miami in May

Compared to winter months like January, spending May in Miami is like entering a different world. At this time of year you will see higher temperatures, much higher rainfall, and higher humidity levels too.


Checking the forecast before you go out might well be essential here, as during this month the rainfall increases to 173mm across the 30 days, a large jump from April. That occurs in just 12 days of actual rain, so you can imagine the storms are quite heavy when they do hit.


As for the average daily temperatures, these soar up to 26°C, with highs of 29°C and lows of 22°C. This means that even on the coldest days, this time of year is warmer than the hottest winter days. If you want to work on your tan, now's the time to get started.


There are 10 hours of sunshine a day this month, which means the sea is heating up as well.

Sea Temperature

The average sea temperature rises to 27°C, making it more than pleasant enough for you to go ahead and take a dip in the water. Be sure to pack swimwear and sun-cream!


Remember the combined heat and rainfall is going to make for some pretty humid days. Prepare for this accordingly and take note of the fact that it can make temperatures seem even higher due to the way humidity feels on your skin. Plan to dress for hot weather always and take a break out of the heat of the midday sun if you need to.

This part of the USA sees some great temperatures as we go into the summer months. It is a bit wetter here than you would find further up the coast in cities like West Palm Beach, but with the local attractions like South Beach, you might want to stay in this area all the same. There is a lot of fun to be had around this great city.

Hotels for Miami in May

Viceroy Miami

With the weather heating up in May, a beachside hotel becomes a great choice. The Viceroy Miami is a good example of a hotel that gives you direct access to the sandy shores. There's also a 300 foot swimming pool if you are feeling too lazy to head outside of the complex.

Four Seasons Miami

For a brand you know and can trust, the Four Seasons Miami says it all. This is also right by the beach, but you might find it difficult to be tempted away from the spa. The hotel restaurant along with the bar and lounge offer fantastic dining and nightlife opportunities.

Hotel Urbano

Try the Hotel Urbano for a third option. There are only 65 rooms here each with a personalised design including the artwork in the rooms, which is all by local artists and all up for sale. You can also find a free breakfast buffet available every morning.

Beaches for May for Miami

There are three main beaches around Miami, and you will definitely want to visit at least one of them. With the sea temperatures reaching an average of 27°C, it will be amazing to take a dip in the warm waters. The white sandy beaches look great too.

Surfside Beach

The Surfside Beach offers a mile long stretch of sand which is perfect for those long romantic walks. There are also biking paths here, and the area is known for being very clean and well-maintained. What really makes it stand out is the natural beauty.

Sunny Isles Beach

The Sunny Isles Beach offers double the length of white sands, with clear waters making it a great place for water sports like snorkelling and diving. The Newport Fishing Pier is a local landmark and is a great spot to visit.

Viriginia Key Beach

There's also the historic Virginia Key Beach, where you can expect to pay a few dollars to drive or walk onto the sand. You can try windsurfing here as well as a flight in a seaplane, and you'll spot the place easily thanks to a big wooden sign marking the entrance.

Restaurants and Bars for Miami in May

Old Lisbon

The Old Lisbon restaurant on Coral Way is a great choice for those who like Portuguese cuisine and especially seafood. It also has a great backstory a small chain has grown from this first location, and it actually burned down in 2011 before reopening much bigger in 2013.

Shinju Japanese Buffet

If you are looking for all-you-can-eat, why not the Shinju Japanese Buffet? It serves sushi, hibachi, seafood, some selected Chinese dishes, and a dessert section. This is one of five locations in Florida, with the success of the restaurants allowing them to expand.


You could always go for the classic beer and burger combination at Kush. Located in the Wynwood area, this restaurant has a focus on craft beers combined with well-sourced meats. They change their beers every week, so it's worth a couple of visits.
