still wonderful after all these years

where you still want to go to understand and shop at a place that was designed as a mall without it ever feeling like one.

Unless you have stacks of cash cascading from your pockets this isn't the most budget friendly place to visit. A simple glance at the parking lot of the Bal Harbor shopping mall will immediately set the tone for the level of wealth this area caters to. But I mean it is nice to see, I guess. The area is nice... More

I have been coming to this beach for years. The sand is soft and the water is warm. However, there are occasions in December when you have to watch that you don't step on jellyfish that have washed up on the beach. That would be a painful experience. Bel harbour has a nice walking / biking track along the beach.... More

This beach is long quiet and sandy, and a great walk any day When in the area take a stool. The route winds along the beach side of the hotels on Collins Avenue and twists and turns as it goes and has many trees shrubs and grasses to look. which give a little shade on a hot day.

The beach here is very wide and very nice. It is the beach I have come more frequently in Miami. I would certainly recommend it to anyone. If you want full service you have to stay in one of the hotels.

My favorite area of Miami Beach if you're looking to chill, like biking, jogging or long quiet walks on white sandy beaches with calm blue waters. Finding parking on the weekend can be a hassle and I much prefer the vibe on weekdays. Family friendly and low key. If you need a lot of noise, action and visual distraction, this... More
