“Big park, nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

It is right by Fairchild botanical garden so you can comebine this trip with that. It is a big park. Nice for walking. Also the beach is very nice. It's relaxing and not too many people there.

“WILD AND NATURAL BEAUTY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

A scenic park featuring a man-made atoll pool,flushed naturally with the tidal action of adjacent Biscayne Bay.This park is amazing with coral stone buildings, a marina, fishing tackle shop, boat launch ramps, gas and diesel fuel, and wetslips. The beach sea breeze,mangroves and nature trails make it a great place to enjoy the day!

“Relax with beach and liters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

When you don't want to drive all the way to Key Biscayne or Miami beach, Mathewson is close and a great alternative. There is an atoll pool for little kids, life guards , great views and on windy days, tons of kiters to entertain you with tricks. Great breeze to cool you off, too!

“My favorite place in Miamiland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

First, there's the water, Biscayne Bay and an inlet sea that is the BEST beach EVER! Never crowded and just beautiful. I've seen two weddings there just by chance. I love to watch the windsurfers and the birds. Then, in great contrast, there's the Mangrove forest with a walking path. I can just lose myself in that place. You have to see it! Too bad, no dogs. I always want to share it with my buddies. Also, a nice fish restaurant, Red Fish, that is excellent when it's good, but a little uneven.

If you are looking for a nice place to dine, this is an excellent option. Good restaurant and nice view to the lagoon and to the beach. After the dinner, walk around the lagoon
