This beach is nice because it is free to park and easy to get to. Even on a weekday, however, parking is tight and difficult to exit. The beach is more family friendly than the beaches in Miami Beach. There is plenty of shade under trees near the parking lot.

Only a couple of miles from central Brickel and a toll away, you can enjoy a magnificent beach that stretches for a couple of miles of clear sand and soft ocean breeze. This is a public beach, so, be aware that on holidays its going to be full and vendors of different types and origins, will offer food to eat... More

The park is great but the dog poop on the ground and around the waters edge even in the water is not so great

What a great place to have fun with the family and family pets. We enjoyed our kayaks and the abundance if sea life. Great for fishing, snorkeling, shore diving, picnicking, and swimming. Can't wait to go back

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
