5 Most Stunning Miami Beaches

Monday, August 6th, 2012

Anytime you mention Miami, it’s difficult for people not to immediately think about the beaches there are to enjoy with your family whenever you are vacationing there.  Even those who haven’t visited the state of Florida before have visions of a vacation at one of the numerous beaches that line the coastlines of the state.  The blue skies, the cool blue waters, and the white sands equate to a lot of fun in the sun.  The following is a list of the 5 most stunning Miami beaches.

Crandon Park Beach (Key Biscayne) – not only is this beach stunningly beautiful, it is the top rated family beach as well.  This is due to the sandbar that is situated just off shore which creates a natural swimming area for children.  Other family attractions in Crandon Park include the Biscayne Nature Center and Crandon Park Gardens.  There is also a carousel, a playground, and a roller rink for everyone to enjoy. (Rated best family beach)

Bill Baggs State Park (Key Biscayne) – this beach is tucked away on Key Biscayne’s southernmost tip, an area where families and fishermen alike come in mass over the weekends.  It is also the home of the state’s oldest structure – the Cape Florida Lighthouse – with daily tours available.  Additionally, there are bike rentals, fishing on the seawall, nature trails, pavilions, picnic tables, two restaurants, and umbrella and chair rentals. (Rated best beach for scenery)

Lummus Park Beach (Miami Beach) – if flurries of activity and people-watching are your thing, this is the beach to visit.  You won’t want to bring the kids here as going topless is optional.  Just across Ocean Drive, you will find all the bars, cafés, and restaurants you could possibly desire.  (Rated best people-watching beach)

Virginia Key Beach (Key Biscayne) – if you’re looking for a quiet beach for spending a peaceful and relaxing weekend, this is the place.  A little bit of exploring will reward you with all the solitude you could want.  If you’re hungry for smoked fish and want a beer to wash it down with, visit Jimbo’s.  The beach has ample picnic areas and restrooms as well.  (Rated best beach for solitude)

Haulover Beach (Bal Harbor) – on the northern end of the beach you will find the only Florida beach where “clothing optional” is not only the rule, it is legal.  For those of you who hate tan lines, this is the beach for you to enjoy.  The family-friendly area of the beach is out of sight of the nudist part.  (Rated best nude beach)

    I need to check out Lummus Beach. I like to go to beaches that have a lot going on, and have a lot of people. I’m not the typical lay on the beach guy. When I go, I want to do things like play volley ball, or people watch or something.
