Located on a barrier island, Miami Beach is a continuation to the north of the white sands that Miami’s South Beach is famous for. Miami beaches are said to be the best in the USA, and arguably the most famous.
Miami Beach stretches from 21st to 45th Street and is a mecca for tourists, dog walkers, sunbathers and anyone wanting to see and be seen working on their tan..
Stroll or jog along the boardwalk lining this strip of beautiful sand and blue waters and enjoy people watching as well as spotting luxury yachts and cruise ships coming and going from the Port of Miami further south. The beach is overlooked by some of the most luxurious hotels chains with some smaller boutique hotels.
Open to the public, the beach has several parking lots nearby (fee payable) making it easy to access both the boardwalk and sands.
There are lifeguard watch towers dotted along the shores. The strong winds and tides can be dangerous at times so visitors should respect the flag system that warns of the sea conditions.
The beach is also served by restrooms, showers, picnic areas and barbecue areas along with some beach chair rentals and watersports equipment. For refreshments, head to one of the hotels or cafés backing onto the boardwalk.
