Staycation anyone? Tidal Cove Waterpark in Miami is a stunning retreat you can escape to this summer. Whether you want to glide down a lazy river or drink out of coconuts in your private cabana, you'd be remiss not you spend a day at this luxurious spot.
Located at the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort and Spa, Tidal Cove initially opened in 2019. In its debut on the Miami scene, it snagged a spot on USA Today's Best New Attraction list, sliding in at number seven.

After one visit, it's not hard to see why this world-class spot was quickly awarded in its freshman year. The waterpark features a 60-foot tower with seven water slides, a 4,000-square-foot kiddie pool, and a surf simulation.
However, it's the lazy river that will be calling your name this summer.
Peacefully drift down this breezy waterway that flows through a canopy of lush, tropical foliage. It's perfect for those days when you just can't be bothered by sandy beaches.
Stretching less than a mile long, you and your crew can lounge on the lazy river and watch as all your worries float away. It will feel as though you booked an exclusive tropical vacation to the Caribbean as you breeze through the surrounding palm trees.
This dreamy oasis rivals many of Florida's natural rivers that tend to be overcrowded and jammed with tubes during this season. Find yourself being one with nature as you work on that sunkissed tan on the river or the lagoon-style swimming pool.
If you're more adventurous, you can test your surf skills by tackling the FlowRider Triple or get released from a trap door on the Aqua Drop slide. There's also the Boomerango that will have you sliding down a near-vertical wall.
Whether you decide to spend the weekend at the resort or just looking for a fun day by the water, Tidal Cove is the perfect place for you to splash into summer.
