The beach is just a few steps away. It looks picture-postcard – fine white sand and crystal clear blue and green water. Splendid! However, like all the other Miami beaches, this one sometimes gets covered in seaweed so be prepared for that possibility. Otherwise, swimming is enjoyable and safe – there are lifeguards on duty.
Good news for dog owners – the park has a designated dog area so you can take your four-legged friend with you!
