Hurricane Irma

As we continue our recovery and cleanup efforts, please visit the Emergency website for the latest information on openings and closings in Miami-Dade County.


Miami-Dade Parks has some of the best swimming-and-sunning areas in Miami-Dade County: Crandon Park, rated among the top ten beaches in the U.S. for the past 10 years; Matheson Hammock Park, with its unusual atoll pool flushed with the tidal action of Biscayne Bay; and Haulover Park, with an Atlantic beachfront popular with surfers and families alike.

Or choose an island made for fun: Pelican Island, a short, breezy boat ride away from Pelican Marina, ideal for beach picnics up to 400 people, or the Tom Sawyer Island, a magnet for children, reachable only by a swinging rope bridge.

Beach Wheelchairs Available

Accessible pathways from the beach road onto the beach are available at Haulover Beach for use by persons with disabilities. Pathways are spread throughout the beach at five different areas, including north, central and south beaches. Showers and concession stands are wheelchair accessible.

Flotation Devices Not Allowed

No flotation devices are allowed on our beaches. We want everyone to enjoy our waters. Following this park rule helps to keep everyone safe. It also helps us to be good stewards of the environment as well as protect our natural areas. Chapter 26 of the Code of Miami-Dade, Rule 16 states: ''No person, minor or adult, shall enter or be in water at any bathing area wearing, carrying, pushing or towing any flotation device.''

Beach Flags Warn Swimmers

Dangerous rip currents in South Florida have claimed lives and threatened several others. Beachgoers are reminded to heed beach warning flags and to swim with extreme caution when hazardous surf conditions are present.
