If you have to Miami on your list of possible future destinations, you will want to know in advance some of its beaches and what will you find when you get there.
Perhaps the best known of the beaches of Miami. South Beach gained notoriety in the ’80s thanks to the television series Miami Vice and became a filming location for films, commercials and fashion productions. Its aesthetics became an icon of the city known worldwide.
This sector was the first section of Miami Beach which was developed beginning in the 1910s. The area has changed over time by human and natural, as the hurricane of 1926 that destroyed most of the area.
The ’30s brought a huge architectural revolution to South Beach: Art Deco style with modernist aesthetics and nautical gave character to the hotels and condominiums being built in this area, further south of the island. An earthquake in 1931 destroyed the structures and chose the new avant-garde styles of the time.
South Beach (or “Soubi”) is bordered by sea on one side and the Ocean Drive on the other. Take your time to tour these 23 blocks (from lane 1 through 21, past the Convention Center) and find all sorts of restaurants and shops along the avenue.
The beach is wide and soft sand. The sea here can be dangerous so I’d better follow the instructions of the lifeguards who watch everything from its colorful booths.
Here very few women are topless, however, find that the sand is more like a gateway for human display where to look and look left.
In 1945 he “creates” this beach for black people, over a period of racial segregation and was then the only beach open to blacks (or “African Americans”).
In these times is, of course, open to everyone and one of the beaches to go if you want to make real contact with local residents. It is very well located and is ideal for picnics as it has tables and barbecues, and large umbrellas that provide some shade, as well as permitted to be on a leash.
It has a playground and miniature train Rickenbacker Biscayne Central Virginia, making it an excellent choice for those traveling with children.
This is an ideal beach for families and where it is unlikely that you cross paths with celebrities.
A magnificent stretch of sand between the ocean and the canal. Haulover is the only beach in Miami where nudity is allowed in a small part of it.
It’s a crowded beach that sits right in front of a marina with restaurant, tennis courts, golf course, restaurants and shops. A full choice for those who do not want to the beach with the fridge.
Despite its visitors nudists, however, is a very familiar beach with calm and carefree environment, away from flashes and starlets.
State Park Bill Baggs Cape
He has been voted one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the United States.
More than 1 kilometer from soft sand and clear water offers much to visitors.
An ideal place for cycling, rent an umbrella or prepare a grill (a “barbecue”) on the grills that are in a flag for that purpose. Or for a picnic by the sea, with family or friends.
In No Name Harbor and overnight camping is allowed in caravans and you can visit the historic lighthouse Bil Baggs Cape built in 1825, rebuilt in 1846 and the oldest structure throughout the county.
The visits are free, Thursday through Monday from 9 to 17 hours with guided tours at 10 and 13 hours. In the cafe of the lighthouse you can try authentic Cuban cuisine and the Boater’s Grill you have to give you an international feast (at good prices).
Homestead State Park
It is the gateway to the Florida Keys off the coast of Bay of Biscay or Biscayne Bay. An excellent place to isolate the high turnover of Miami.
Homestead State Park has a marina, solarium, Lunches area, fishing area and a strip of sand where there is room for everyone.
Located near the wonderful with endless opportunities to discover the underwater flora and fauna of the Keys, a step away from Miami.
