Plenty of parking for big, nice beach.

I was amazed how much parking there is for this large beach area but it's needed because the location is very popular. It is a very pretty white sand beach and the water is nice... read more

Very disorganized operation. Staff are unhelpful and unfriendly. I was informed the day before my 25 person BBQ that i would have to move to the shelter the furthest away from where i needed when i asked why they told me it was double booked and then preceded to hound me for a justification as to why i needed the...

I was amazed how much parking there is for this large beach area but it's needed because the location is very popular. It is a very pretty white sand beach and the water is nice. Chair and umbrella rentals are available but bring a cooler with snacks and drinks because you may have a long walk to concessions. I think... More

You are just across the Causeway from Miami and the large park (soccer fields etc) but you really get the feel that you are away from it all on the beach. Very quiet - the lifeguard stands are pretty cool and lots of coconut palms. The beach isn't particularly wide, but that makes it easier to sit under the palm... More

Not much of a beach. Most of the beach area is fenced off. The views and parking is great. The grass area is good for picnic.

We rented paddle boards here, despite the heat and horrible smell on the beach. The strong current and winds kept blowing us onto the sand bar, but we got a decent workout.

I was very pleased with a visit here with my ten and eight year old daughters. It was a family vibe. The water was so warm and it was great to lay in the shade of a palm tree. There was a lot of seaweed. That was the only negative thing I can think of.

Not very well maintained. With so many nice beaches so close, not a very good choice. Many beaches on Virginia key and Bill Bags so close, we ended up moving to Bill Bags, which the kids enjoyed more. Brandon beach smelled of sewage and had a very uneven bottom in the ocean. There were a ton of pits the kids... More

We visited this location once before earlier this year and were disappointed the lighthouse was closed to refurbishment, so we went back to visit this time around on our visit to Miami. We went specifically for the lighthouse and at $8 per car, it was a deal. The lighthouse itself is closed so you don’t get to go up and... More

The day we were there there was a bad odor in the water along the beach. Everything else was fine. There is a a picnic area complete with grills and restrooms and the day use/parking fee is only five dollars. The odor problem was spotty as if there was some sort of alge or sewer problem that washed in and... More
