Our family truly enjoyed our time at Bal Harbour Beach. My wife and I were able to take advantage of the running path, and our daughter enjoyed splashing in the waves. Truly a family atmosphere that caters to fun in the sun! We highly recommend this beach for anyone's vacation

The well maintained beaches here are never over crowded and have delightful walking and riding paths at their edges.

You have great hotels and you have shopping. The best hotel in this area is the St. Regis. Bal Bay is a community of homes across the street from the beach.

Loved the quiet, relatively private beach. Found some beautiful shells. Cabana service with fresh towels available. Great walking path along the beach with showers.

Enjoy the beach without all the fuss. This has to be my most favorite area of the beach. It's very well maintained and the crowds are usually from the luxury hotels nearby. Love South Beach for major events but not for your weekend staycation.
