Pay $5 for all-day parking, spend the morning on the beach under palm trees for shade, lunch time at one of the many, many, picnic tables, and the afternoon walking through the bird sanctuary. At the beach and picnic area there are clean restrooms and outdoor showers to rinse off. In the bird sanctuary we saw peacocks, ducks, geese, ibis,... More

This park is well maintained and a great place to take very small children to play in the sand and water. We went on a week day so the place was empty. There is a roller skating area, an old zoo that is a little spooky because it is so empty, but has lots of nice birds. We didn't eat... More

Based on all of the recommendations for this beach we visited it. It was gross, littered with trash and butts. We also saw the police questioning people and it made us a little nervous. It seems like maybe in the 90s this was a nice park .Now it has been let go. It cost us a few dollars to cross... More

Water was so frightening and smelled. This video is closest I've come to what I experienced June 2014. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW4ZdF0W8vI

Loved it here, stumbled upon it. Lovely beach with loungers and parasols, BBQ areas and sports facilities. Huge car park and only 5$ entry for the car. Really enjoyed my day.

I visited Miami in January, 2015, and spent a day walking Crandon State Park and Virginia Key to see a little Miami nature and take sunset pics. Here are my thoughts: PROs: -Close to downtown Miami - 20 minutes or so by car (with minimal traffic). - Easy to access by car or public transportation. I took the metro people... More

The beach was OK, but the working attitude of the staff members need a big improvement. We went there during Christmas. We paid our admission and got in (otherwise, how can we got in?), but never got the parking stick. When I went to the office to explain the situation, a guy with uniform said it was not his fault....

Visited several years ago, and at the time, we were one of 5 cars in the lot. This time, the lot and the beach was much more crowded. Having said that, we still had a great time. Beach had loads of space to enjoy, and water to play in. This is an added plus of being a photographers paradise with... More

Crandon Park Beach is on Key Biscayne, a very nice beach and a picnic ground for those that favor family beaches instead of the "loud beachgoers" on cramped South Beach. The beach itself is just as good, the water is cleaner and the parking is a whole lot cheaper, $5 flat rate on weekdays instead of up $10/h at the... More
