The Ancient Spanish Monastery
A truly unbelievable and awe-inspiring sight, the Ancient Spanish Monastery is a must-see for all visitors to Sunny Isles beach! Construction originally began in 1133 AD in Spain where the monastery was dedicated and occupied for nearly 700 years.
In 1925, William Randolp Hearst, an American journalist and businessman bought the monastery and had it painstakingly dismantled, stone-by-stone. Upon shipping over 11,000 wooden crates to the United States, the Monastery was rebuilt after a nearly $20 million construction project.

Hidden in the RK center off Collins Avenue, Family Fresh Cafe is another must visit restaurant! Delicious breakfast and lunch combos fill their huge menu, with massive dinner portions as well.
Enjoy one of their many traditional dishes or try something new! Family Fresh is sure to have a dish for you. We love the glazed tuna salad, borscht, and chicken francaise.
