I just love the Bal Harbour beach. It's very clean, not crowded, the sea seems calmer than other beaches close by. The walking path on the beach is great!

Lovely sand. Not too busy. Nice coastal walk in both directions. Grab a bike and ride it. We was staying at the St Regis. A great hotel.

Bal Harbour Beach is probably the most manicured beach in South Florida. Beatifully manicured board walk from 96th street all the way to Haulover Inlet, dog friendly, life guards, Pier for fishing enthusiast and more. However, it is designed to keep non Bal Harbour Residents (or non hotel guests) out. The only access to the beach for non residents is... More

What an amazing beautiful beach. Clean and not as much garbage floating around like some of the other beaches. The water was an clear green blue color and very way. The waves were just enough without being to powerful and knocking you over. It was such an amazing day spent there.

Secluded northernmost point of the popular barrier island of Miami Beach. Perfect escape from the loud crowds and frenzy of South Beach. Very private and exclusive enclave anchored by expensive condominiums and Bal Harbour Shops, Miami's best selection of high end boutiques and restaurants. You will enjoy lots of open space on white, sandy beaches which end at a popular... More

We were on the beach at The St. Regis in June. Not sure if it varies during different times of the year, but there was a LOT of seaweed while we were there. The sand is a bit course, and there were a fair amount of waves (again, might be seasonal). But, the water was warm and the beach wasn't... More

Coming from the west coast of Florida, I always enjoy the breezes of the Atlantic Ocean and the waves in the morning which are NOT too strong! Lovely sandy, well kept beaches.
