“Crammed-in Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Visited there today and found the beach noisy. If you love feeding the seagulls you will haters everywhere you look and scream at you move on!!!

The shoreline is still filled with seaweed and now it costs $6 to park in the lot. You can rent gazebos, beach chairs, and umbrellas. You can still find a shady spot FOR FREE under a palm tree which makes me inclined to give this beach an average rating instead of below average.

“Quiet beach though it needs renovation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

It's a nice place and it is not noisy like Miami Beach. Picnic tables have been added and some structures like public bathrooms have been painted and renovated but the place needs much more renovation of the natural areas. More trees need to be planted and they need to clean much more the place. The sidewalks, roads need to be cleaned.

“A part of paradise ... fading but still great spaces”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

It's a park begging for help...such a golden space with so much of the infrastructure falling down. We saw how much potential there is waiting for long overdue attention ... the once great Miami Zoo space, the gorgeous beach cabana area, the promenade, the parking areas, sidewalks, roads, curbs, the heavenly beach.
It's difficult to see such a great space so far behind in maintenance. What an opportunity for Miami to make the place great again.

“Isn't the best but not the worst”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

The weather in Miami hasn't been so pleasant lately... It's raining a lot therefore crandon park has many trees around it's surrounding and brings out all the Mosquitos . They have bikes in which you can rent and it's fun but the beach isn't the best in cleanness . The water isn't clear and very shallow . They have water activities such as kayaking or paddle boarding for an extra charge . I would highly choose maybe miami beach over crandon park.

“Nasty Beach”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Wow!!! I could not believe my eyes! I grew up going to this beach. Went back home this summer to enjoy the beach and got back home to GA with a bad bug :-(. Day 4 my 5 year old has 103.1 of fever. Stay away from this beach!
