Family oriented, this is probably one of the best alternatives if you’re in the south and you don’t want to drive all the way to South Beach or key biscayne . It has a small beach protected from the ocean, I love it

This is one of our favorite parks. It is quiet and beautiful. We like to go for an hour or two, bring a picnic and just pretend that Miami has not grown up into the big city it now is.

I found one trail there and it was only about a mile long. Along that trail there was lots of trash. There was a duffle bag swarmed by maggots and caution tape around it. The park didn't want to remove the bag but just have...More

If you are planning on coming to this park to enjoy the little lagoon/ beach area don't bother. Even though the hurricane that damaged it happened almost a year ago, it looks like it happened yesterday. I have not been here in years so I...More

Disappointed with our visit here. We went in the swimming atol but it was murky. The whole place seemed deserted and we didn’t stay long.

Good place to visit to relax in the breeze and enjoy a view of the Bay. We go to watch the wind surfers and to relax

I really love this beach. I go with my family all the time. My favorite thing is that the beach is closed off from the ocean so you don't have to worry about sharks, swimming too far, etc. I don't even think the water is...More

A beautiful park hidden in the grove. A really nice place to enjoy the beach or to go kayaking. Whatever the time of the day you go, it is gorgeons.

I would suggest you check directly with the restaurant on site. It's called "Red Fish Grill" Google for their website, as I can't ad a URL here. Also, I don't think you can expect a high level service ambience, but it's a... More

Absolutely! It's a great location for such a special moment. Actually, there is a restaurant for dinner should you want to order some champagne or something special. Best of lucks!

Beaches with the best facilities? (6 Replies)
Hi there... will be hitting the beaches near Miami with my son. Looking for any beach within a 45 min radius (we'll have a car). I'd like one that has parking, reasonable rates, bathroom facilities, lifeguards, and refreshments. Can anyone recommend their favorite beaches that meet this criteria? In my own research I have found: Matheson Hammock Park Crandall Park Bal Harbour- no lifeguards? Biscayne National Park- several beaches? Also, are any of the above, or others that you...More

Lummus / South Beach Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park - Key Biscayne Haulover Beach (some of it is clothing optional but not all) would be my choices.
