About this beach

The beach is clothing optional.

Sexual activity is strictly prohibited.

Sprawled against the Atlantic shore, the world-famous Haulover Beach offers not only a beautiful and spacious sandy beach for clothing-optional recreation but also plentiful parking, well-maintained restrooms, showers, food concessions, and rental services. In addition to that, Haulover Beach impresses visitors with its beauty, convenient location, and laid-back relaxing atmosphere.

Location and Access

In contrast to many other naturist beaches, Haulover Beach is located not on a primitive remote shore but just north of Miami in a well-maintained and quite commercialized area.

The precise address is 10800 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, Florida. It’s near Highway A1A and Sunny Isles Causeway (SR #826). The beach stretches from the 12th to 16th lifeguard towers. Entrance is free; parking is ample and costs $5. The beach is open from sunrise to sunset daily.


Haulover Beach has all the necessary amenities including restrooms, outdoor showers to rinse the sand off, concessions with snacks and drinks, and covered picnic areas with tables (on the southern end of the park) for those who would like to have their freshly cooked meal outdoors. If you’re a sports enthusiast, you can use one of the tennis courts. There are also a marina and an enclosed dog park available.

Naturist Recreation

Since Haulover Beach is included in the Top 10 Nude Beaches throughout the world, it’s easy to guess it’s a place where you’re not required to wear any clothes at all. It’s the most popular and oldest official public naturist beach in Florida, attracting nudists from all over the world who come here to soak up the sun and have a swim in the turquoise waters of the Atlantic au naturel. The beach was officially recognized as clothing-optional by South Florida Free Beaches in 1991.

Swimming Conditions

The beach is wide and very clean with transparent blue water. The ocean is calm, warm, and inviting on most days. You can feel quite safe in the water because there are lifeguards on duty during the open hours.

Other Activities

Haulover Beach is a great spot not only for swimming but also for surfing. Note that any flotation devices are prohibited in the area. There is a bike trail and you can rent a bicycle from Electribike Miami from 10 a. m. to 6 p. m. Kite flying is another popular activity on the beach. If you are interested in fishing, you can cast a line in one of the dedicated areas along the Intracoastal Waterway and the Baker’s Haulover Cut – but only if you have a valid Florida fishing license.

Question: Is there any talk about Haulover being closed because of COVID-19? Thanks.
Asked by Randy over 3 years ago
Answer: In October, the local authorities planned to close Haulover Beach for visitors - not due to the pandemic, however, but because of the dangerous red tide algae. To get to know whether the beach is now open, please call the Halouver Park administration office +13059473525.
