Established on August 1, 1945 as Miami’s ‘Colored Only Beach’ immediately became a spot for social gatherings to tourists and residents who made trips to enjoy amenities such as the carousel, the dancing pavilion or the mini-train that would run through the enormous park. Now, characterized by a unique and precious natural environment, the City of Miami’s largest recreational jewel serves as the ultimate recreational location for those who want to bask in the splendor of the sun and ocean.

  • Park located right at the entrance of Key Byscaine you have to pay $8 per excellent beach vehicle with many tables with benches, barbecues, showers and lots of shade, excellent to spend a day at the beach we buy fruit and drinks in a supermarket and had a good day in its crystal clear waters although this year I don't know that it was really due, we found it with many algae on its shore that made it difficult to access the sea, I think that being a national park this would have to take more into account and take it a little more into account and keep it a little bit in mind and keep it a little more care.

  • Great beach to relax and play. I love coming to this beautiful beach. Has restrooms facilities. There’s lifeguards usually guarding this area. Great place to bring your kayak or paddle board and launch from the shore. Small parking lot so if you get there early enough you shouldn’t have an issue of finding a spot.
  • Went here for ultra music festival. The place is beautiful but it has only one bridge in and out and once that's crowded the traffic is insane. It took us 45 minutes to go 4 miles. Plus cops had blocked lanes on both sides of the bridge that didn't make things any easier.
  • Location for 2019 Ultra Music Festival. Beautiful historic spot I'm happy to see it brought back to life for this event. Great views
  • Beautiful Park. I was there for the finish line of our race and it was definitely a wonderful way to end the day! Found a cool wooden sculpture. The beach was a sight to see. The water was clear! We had an amazing time. Even met a small kitten! I will definitely be returning here on a day with no race!
  • Nice park with quieter beaches in the north part. And a good place for paddle boarding. Unfortunately as in many other places people are pigs and you should watch out for pieces of broken glass in the sand. Also there is garbage bins everywhere so use it and do not dump your plastics all over the place ..
