For those who want a beach getaway, Miami is a top destination option. Home to more than 15 beaches, you’ll have plenty of options for where to soak in some sun. That being said, with so many choices it can be difficult to pick where to go. To help, here are some recommendations for Miami’s best beaches.
For those who want to get away from the resorts and tourist attractions, 85th Street Beach is a top pick. Located along Collins Avenue, it’s a great swimming beach and features soft white sand, life-guards on duty and virtually no crowds. This is also a top choice for families due to its gentle surf. It’s also very close to another worthwhile beach—Bal Harbour Beach on 96th Street—which is great for shell hunting, fishing and jogging.

Of course, no trip to Miami would be complete without a visit to the iconic South Beach (Lummus Park Beach). This is the coastline you see in postcards and on television, full of soft white sand, beautiful people and adventurous surfers catching waves. Don’t be surprised to see models preparing for a photo shoot on the soft white sand surrounded by billowing palms. While South Beach isn’t clothing-optional, topless sunbathing is permitted. Get fit while enjoying the scenery by running along the jogging paths that surround the beach. 

Located on Key Biscayne, Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park is known for its colorful sunsets, nature trails, a historic lighthouse and untouched Atlantic shoreline. What makes this one of Miami’s best beaches is you not only get to enjoy soft white sand and azure waters, but also an array of other outdoor experiences like hiking, cycling fishing and wildlife viewing right in the park. The waters of the beach are also great for recreation offering swimming, canoeing, kayaking and other water sports.
