Haulover Beach

Haulover Beach
Haulover Beach is a nearly 100-acre metropolitan beach park in Miami Florida. It is intensely popular with residents of the city, as well as people visiting Miami and staying close to the downtown core. Haulover Park Florida is situated on a shoal between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic, right to the north of Bal Harbour. North Miami Beach and Sunny Isles are located just to the north and Surfside, Indian Creek, and Central Miami Beach are a couple miles south. The beach is fine for families, but it should be noted that there is an area specifically designated for naturist sunbathing. Naturist sunbathing is only allowed in the well-marked and designated area on the northern end of the beach.

The entire area that surrounds Haulover Beach is absolutely breathtaking. The views from Bal Harbour and all along the beach remind visitors and residents alike that this is indeed a special place surrounded with natural goodness. The sand and surf is accommodating for swimming, sunbathing, and relaxing, and you will also be able to access all kinds of fun water sports and activities, from body boarding and kayaking to swimming and snorkeling. Portions of this beach get very busy. It is, after all, a metropolitan beach in one of the ten largest cities in the United States. As such, the weekends can get particularly hairy when it comes to battling the crowds.

Lifeguards are on active duty and there are comprehensive public facilities, including, but not limited to restrooms, showers, changing rooms, and parking.

Besides miles of sandy beach, tons of water sports and activities, and seemingly countless beautiful beach goers, Haulover Beach also offers a marina, a 9-hole, Par 3 golf course, and six tennis courts. There are also designated areas for picnicking and recreation, including a host of activities geared toward the kids. Playgrounds, convenient facilities, and access to all of the glitz and glamour of downtown are just a few of the reasons why can put Haulover Park Florida on the list of the top beach destinations in the city of Miami.

These come in many different sizes and styles and can accommodate groups of virtually any size. Whether you are a couple looking for a place to enjoy a romantic honeymoon or a large family seeking a house on the beach for a week, you are guaranteed to find exactly what it is you are looking for at Haulover.
