Biking into Matheson Hammock through the mangroves is one of the thrills I had upon first discovering that path. I like the walk around the lagoon, watching the boats, and I managed to snag a rental paddle board, which adds to the fun.

This little park near Coral Gables has Wind surfing for the adventurous or observers. A beach to relax and walking trails for the exercise prone. A definite lack of food was the only negative.

This little bay, restaurant, beach pools and marina are a little hidden treasure in fancy Coral Gables way. A windsurf/paddle board business was holding classes the afternoon we were there and, with the exception of the odd Ibis, the play park/pool was empty.

Nice beach area. Great views of the Miami and the Biscayne Key. There is a large shallow area for swimming/wading. Easy parking, bathrooms, changing area and concession stand. Lifeguards on duty. Beach was clean. Wasn't to crowded on a Sunday.

This park has a great area for walking, and just sitting while looking at the bay and Miami across the bay. There is a tranquil lagoon and restaurant to enjoy. But if you bring your own snacks, chairs and wine you can really have a great time in the late afternoon and early evening.

The bike trails are much to brag about but if you're looking for a quick and quiet little getaway of a beach... This is it. My fam of 4 hit this... More
