“I hate to give up this secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The nicest, quietest, cleanest beach anywhere! However there is no boardwalk for large stretches of it and no services, rest rooms, or snack facilities. This may be the reason why it stays quiet and clean and personally, I prefer it that way. Parking in the area is on hourly meters and limited.

“Quiet and relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

If you want to get out of the craziness of South Beach, there's nowhere to go but Bal Harbour Beach - specially with kids. I highly recommend this beach if you want to have a relaxing and quiet time with your family.

the sand, the trail to walk or bike, the warm and blue water.
I disliked that you have to pay the umbrellas and chairs at the beach

“Beach Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We liked the location very much, and the fact that the hotel had a pool and was on the beach. Also, the kitchen was handy. We didn't like the roaches and exorbitant parking fee.

“A lot of trash on the beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

A lot of trash on the beach, To bad it doesn't get cleaned every night. However the all over experience is ok because of the colour of the water and it's the only place with a breeze..
