About this beach

Warnings and hazards

There isn’t much parking on weekends.

Public restrooms and outdoor showers are sometimes closed.

36th Street Park is one of the quieter beach access points in Mid-Beach, Miami Beach. However, don’t be deceived by its name – in fact, it’s not a park and there isn’t much greenery; it’s just a parking lot with a couple of palm trees and access to the beach behind it.

The beach itself is wide, quiet, and beautiful – a nice place to relax near the sea without loud music and noisy companies who tend to occupy the beaches in front of Ocean Drive.

Location and Access

36th Street Park is located in the Mid-Beach area in Miami Beach (Mid-Beach is a section of the city between 23rd Street and 63rd Street). There is a metered parking lot. You will find plenty of vacant parking spaces during weekdays, but on weekends and holidays, parking becomes an issue.

For those with a handicapped tag, parking is free. The beach is easily accessible from the parking lot as well as from the boardwalk.


There are public restrooms and outdoor showers on-site but not very well maintained. Sometimes they are closed.

Sand and Water

The beach is white-sand, clean, and spacious. There aren’t many tourists to leave garbage and usually, there aren’t many algae. The clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean are beautiful. If the weather is good, sunbathing and swimming is a must!

Tranquility and Seclusion

If you’re looking for a place to do some yoga or stretching – that’s it. The beach is spacious and doesn’t see many visitors, so you will get a nice opportunity to stay away from crowds, enjoy the tranquility and natural sounds of the ocean and shorebirds. Some female visitors feel comfortable enough to sunbathe topless.

Other Activities

Despite the fact there isn’t much greenery in the park, there are plenty of iguanas in the area so keep your eyes open. The beach is great for strolling, or flying a kite, or watching sunsets. It’s a very relaxing place.
