“A great beach park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Lummus Park is a well maintained and clean park for beachgoers. The strip next to Ocean drive has lush green grass shaded by palm trees. Between the grass and the off-limits ridge containing seagrass is plenty of area to play volleyball, horseshoes, etc. It contains a running path that extends north beyond the park along the coastline. At 14th Street and Ocean there is a public restroom. There is an area at the southern end with workout stations, and scattered along its length are shower poles to wash off the salt water/sand from the beach. Along the path or sidewalk on each side you'll find skaters, bikers, and segway riders. On the beach are vendors from which you can rent lounge chairs for about $10 and umbrellas for about $15. They also have clamshells available for rent for sunshade. There are manned lifeguard stands the length off the beach. There were a few people hanging around that appeared homeless, but never seemed to pose a threat to anyone. Across the road are a plethora of restaurants and hotels so you can stay almost literally on the beach. Though the area was crowded and noisy on the weekend during our week's stay, it was less so during the week. Mid-way there was a mobile police observation tower present for 5 days. Even after it was gone I never felt unsafe, even though on two nights I went for late-night swims at the beach until midnight. The beach closes between the park and the water from 12a to 5a. You will need to pay for either streetside or garage parking.

“Perfect on a hot day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Visited Lummus Park Beach on a recent trip to Miami. It's beautiful, white sand and blue water. Surprisingly enough i found the sand in the water better than the sand on the beach. A great place to catch som rays on a sunny day.

“Find a quiet spot...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

....and just lay on your back and look up. That view - that one right there - with the blue sky, green palm fronds and sunlit sky - THAT is South Florida. Enjoy.

“Loved it years ago”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Was great a long time ago. Now a tourist area and not a place I want to be. It is a beautiful beach and area, but definately a tourist hang out.

“Great public beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Loved the park and paved beach walk. A great place to get into the water, sun bathe, or walk. Showers outside to rinse off your feet. Good grassy and tree lined areas to stop and rest. Also, you can rent bicycles right at the park areas. The sand here is the grainy, gritty kind, not nice white, soft sand.
