Large clean beach which is never too crowded therefore plenty of space to stroll and lots of beds free so you never have to try too hard to find at least two beds together which are available.
You do have to pay for beds and parasols however they are more than worth it, the beach is one of my favourites in Miami!
The sea and sand is caribbean like, just beautiful.
Cant wait to be back in Miami in 2013 to be back here!

“Pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This has a fairly wide beach which if fairly clean. I have read reviews about the seaweed on the beach, all I can say to that is "What do you expect, you are at the beach. No one can control Mother Nature". The beach itself was very clean with no visible liter. There were many place to rent chairs, umbrellas or jet skis. It could use more restrooms and the exisiting ones need to be cleaned better and more often.

“The best place to tan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is my favorite beach to tan! One because I can tan topless without have a fan club, and two because I dont have to use my passport to get here. The water is almost as beautiful as the Caribbean and the sand is nice. The chairs and umbrellas are pricey to rent but worth the money!

“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.
