There are 2 times a year when you can expect an incredible fireworks show in Miami. One is on the Fourth of July and the other one is the last day of the year. I have created this post so you know exactly where to go when looking for the best Miami fireworks photography spots.

Keep in mind this is for photography, if you want to go watch them, there are a lot of places you can go, but to photograph them this is the best possible spot from a photographers perspective.

Best Miami Fireworks Photography Spots

This is the best possible spot to photograph the fireworks. From here you get an entire view of the Miami Skyline and it looks absolutely incredible. I shot the photo you see below the last new years. It is was amazing because they usually have fireworks on the side. This time however they had them right in front of the buildings, making it extra special.

Miami Fireworks Photography Spots


The gear I used for all my photos: Nikon D850 with Nikon 24-85mm.  A MeFOTO tripod. I highly recommend using a 24-70mm or anything in that range. I edit all my images with my Lightroom Presets download them and give them a try.

If you do not know how to shoot fireworks. Here is an article for the best settings and how to do it.

Things to remember:

Get there early as it will get packed. Make sure you get there by 8 PM at the latest. This will allow enough time to find a spot you like and set up. Tons of people will show up so if you get there earlier even better.

There is paid parking at the Miami Children’s Museum. Park there and walk over to the bridge and walk up the bridge. Bring something to drink and a snack as you will be there for a few hours.
