One of the most beautiful beaches in Florida, this natural vegetation has been restored. It is great not to have tacky commercial activity on the beach, although the beach is colonized by the Park's concession selling umbrellas and beach chairs, which just spoils the whole look and makes it seem like a resort. But you can walk away from the action. After the beach day on the Atlantic, walk around to the Bay Biscayne side for lovely views. If you are lucky you might spot a turtle or dolphins. The restaurant at the beach is set back on the dunes, so it doesn't interfere -- haute cuisine not, but good to come from breakfast, smoothies, etc.
