Miami is best known for its beaches and tropical weather. Visitors come from all over the world to enjoy our world renowned vacation destination. Miami features a diverse selection of beaches. Some are great for people watching, other to spend quality time with the family, or to enjoy water sports.

Bal Harbour Beach has a Palm-shaded jogging path that curves around a mile-long beach. There is a jetty for fishing at north end of beach. You can find a metered parking lot beneath Haulover Bridge. No lifeguards or showers are available.

Crandon Park Beach in Key Biscayne has three-miles of long lagoon style beach protected by 13 lifeguard towers. Beach chairs umbrella rentals are available. Children’s playground and picnic area is also and interesting option to spend the day at the beach, making this option ideal for families available.

Miami Beach can be divided into three parts Mid Beach, North Beach and famous South Beach rated by many as the best beach in Florida.

You can walk, jog or skate along the concrete promenade bordering the beach or enjoy a drink or meal at the finest Ocean Drive cafes.

If you want to enjoy the best of South Beach’s beach, you have to stay in one of the hotels located along Ocean Drive or Collins Avenue. However, most of these Miami hotels are very upscale and offer direct access to the beach. You can find the best deals if you plan in advance and make your reservations with enough time.

You can also have a pretty good taste of Miami beaches by staying in vacation rentals in Miami Beach near the beach.

Other way to enjoy our fantastic Miami beaches and crystalline waters is to rent a boat throughout a Miami Boat Rental or Miami Yacht Charter, some of these companies will rent you a boat for a day, so you can go along all popular Miami Beaches and even Florida Keys.
