The beach is not really a beach but more like a small stretch of sand in front of a small parking lot. It is free to park which is a good thing in Miami. Dogs are allowed - which is the best thing about this stretch of sand. Water is not the best. Rocky bottom. Lots of seaweed and ants.... More

Every time we are in Miami we make a point of going to the Key Biscayne causeway for a walk. Great views and a comfortable environment. The beach seems to be a popular place to take your dog for a walk and a swim.

Good beach if you have dogs, lot of seaweed at the beach but amazing views of Miami skyline and the bridge, good for walking or biking along the the paved path or have a picnic/barbeque' not too good for swimming.

I like the beach that is going towards the exit under the bridge on the right hand side. It has a beautiful view of miami's skyline line Miami beach cruise line and the brickell buildings. Literally, you can park 10-20 feet from the beach. My families bbq there and enjoy the beach and the shade the trees provide. Also it... More

Small strip of sand, that gets unbelievably crowded during weekends. Nice just for a stroll or for biking along the paved path, but not on summer weekends

In our family, every trip to South Florida includes a trip to Rickenbacher Causeway. It costs only $1.50 to cross the Causeway and the charge is only in one direction, not both. It is well worth it for the views you get. You should stop at the beach on the right as you drive over the causeway and then pull... More

This is a great place!! The views are spectular! Beaches on both sides, clean and shady. Atlantic on one side and the bay and Miami skyline on the other! The causeway has a $1.50 charge, but totally worth it!

The beach was quit crowded when we were there which was both a plus and a negative: <on the minus side there were too many very noisy children. On the plus side there was lots of interesting crowd watching.

Good view of Miami please bring change for the $1.50 toll. I like to go Miami Seaquarium and the Pelican Restaurant located once you cross the bridge. The Bill Bagg Park is located in this area which has quiet, torquoise beach.

The beach runs all along Rickenbacker to Key Biscayne. The views of the downtown Miami skyline and Key Biscayne can be seen on either side of the causeway. Keep in mind, there are a few vendors on the actual beach during the weekday, weekends are a lot better, but the beach gets packed, so get there early! If you are... More
