6 Worst Sunburns To Avoid on Miami Beach

You don’t want a Miami sunburn.

Sunburns and Miami Beach are no joke.

Sometimes the best days are when it’s cloudy — be grateful — you’ll still catch a tan from the UV’s and the breeze makes the sand mellow.

But when that Miami sun is blasting full UV, watch out, even if your black or brown, you’ll get a burn. It won’t look red but it’ll sting.

But if you’re white and don’t watch out, your Miami Beach trip will fall apart fast. Here are the worst case Miami sunburns to watch out for.

The Miami Beach Lobster sunburn

Beware of the lobster burn. This one strikes fast and lasts long. You will peel like an onion and it will hurt. Just be smart: wear sunscreen.


The “My Friends Are Totally Dicks” Sunburn

This burn is kind of funny yo.

But is it really?  Yeah, it is. Lesson here? Don’t get drunk too fast and fall asleep in the sun with a bunch of dicks as friends. You’ll become a meme.


The Gelato burn

Come on, friend.

Don’t do this to yourself.


The Bowl and Spoon burn

Please beware of what you hold on your lap. Burns can take place in 20 minutes or less. And whatever you do, don’t fall sleep.


The Tough Titty burn

Are you aware you can tan topless in Miami Beach. It’s become less popular with social media as it is, but as far as we know, it’s allowed. Just sayin.


The Wife Beater-Strikes Back burn

Yo, they’re going to have a good laugh at you back in Boston brah.

Again, what have we learned here?
