This is a beach that locals love because it's really not crowded -- no matter when you go. This beach is just south of Haulover Beach (over the bridge). I wouldn't recommend swimming at this beach if you have children, because there is no lifeguard. Also, no bathrooms or snack bars. So, this is not the beach to go to if you want to stay all day. Go to Haulover Beach if you have kids or want to make a day of it. I don't really swim when I go to this beach, just get wet to cool off, so this beach is perfect for me. I have been coming here since I was a kid and love it because it's mostly locals. There are some tourists here, but it seems like most tourists go to South Beach these days. I usually go to the section that is about two blocks north of where Bal Harbour Shops are located. This section of beach is behind some private condos, but the beach is accessible to all, so it's great. Just don't try and use the condo's beach chairs! There's a nice walkway before you get to the beach and there are dunes between the walkway and the beach. The walkway is lighted at night. There is some beach erosion due to last year's storms, but not as bad as you will find further north of this stretch of beach. The water is clean and clear.
