Hollywood Beach

 

It’s no surprise that Miami is one of the hottest destination in America, literally. As the southernmost metro in the U.S., Miami is the best of both words with a vibrant city life and tons of beaches. No matter what your preference is, you’ll find a beach in Miami that fits your interests. Whether you want a family-friendly beach, surfer beach, or secluded beach, you’ll find it in the Miami area. Below we highlight a few of the can’t-miss beaches the next time you’ve booked flights to Miami.

Lummus Park Beach: Lummus Park Beach has long been one of the most popular beaches in Miami. This is the iconic beach in Miami where you’ll find the beautiful people of Southern Florida strutting their stuff. You may find them even doing a little bit more, since topless sunbathing is allowed. For a break from the beach, there are several great restaurants located along Ocean Drive that are within walking distance. Whether you like the iconic crowded beaches or not, Lummus is worth a visit for the experience alone.

Haulover Beach: Haulover Beach Park isn’t exactly for everyone. That’s because Haulover Beach is a clothing-optional beach. Similar to Lummus Park, even if you aren’t exactly a nudist, consider a visit to Haulover just for the experience. Haulover has also established a name for itself in Southern Florida as one of the top surfing beaches.

Hollywood Beach: For a full beach experience, head north toward Ft. Lauderdale for Hollywood Beach. There are no nudists here, but you’ll find a little bit of everything, making it a great beach for everyone. You’ll often find some of the classic beach activities happening up and down the beach, including volleyball and Frisbee. Take a break from the sand and enjoy walking the two-mile boardwalk.

Matheson Hammock Park Beach: Matheson Hammock Park Beach is much more a family beach. Much of this is due to the manmade lagoon, which makes the waters very calm. Bodyboarders and surfers will have to head to some of the other beaches on this list if they want good waves. With more of a laid back feel, Matheson Hammock Park Beach is a nice retreat if you don’t want the hustle and bustle of most of Miami’s beaches.

Virginia Key: If you really want seclusion, head to Virginia Key. Virginia Key requires a little bit of a drive, but it offers a quaint ambiance you’ll find on few other beaches in Southern Florida. Located on Key Biscayne, it features miles of picturesque and quiet beaches. Since it’s located outside of Miami, make a day of it at Virginia Key and take advantage of the bicycle trails and make a visit to the Seaquarium.
