Ample free parking, dog friendly, walking and jogging paths. Narrow beaches but beautiful turquoise water; great view of the downtown Miami and Brickell skyline. Walking distance to the Miami Seaquarium, sort distance to beautiful Key Biscayne villafe where there are restaurants, golf, churches, and additional beaches. Get there early and park yourself in a nice shaded area under a palm... More

The view from this beach is amazing... I love watching the sunset here. However, the beach has become noisier as people like to play loud music. I dont usually mind loud music but when its 10 or 15 people all playing the music at a loud volume, then it isnt really relaxing. The sunsets from this location are very pretty.... More

Too many People just passing by on there way to Key Biscane or heading back to Miami. Just stop and take a break. Not overcrowded and with a stunning view on Downtown Miami it is a perfect place to just come down. Enjoy it. Ulf

A fun place for a beach, great view of the Miami skyline. No lifeguards so you are on your own there. There are food vendors, rentals and a bathroom here.

Not really a welcoming dog beach considering how small, unkempt, full of trash, and rocky the area is... then again, thats probably why they made it the only authorized dog beach. The only silver lining is that being on the Bay, the water is shallow going out and there isn't really waves. So its easier on little dogs than the... More

A neat little place for a beach, great view of the Miami skyline. No lifeguards so you are on your own there. But still worth a stop. Beautiful when you consider it is right beside the highway.

It was very convenient to be able to park the car near the water eliminating the usual long, hot walk to the water. We were on the north side of the Rickenbacker because we just ate lunch at Whiskey Joe's. On the north side you park on the sand under Austrailan Pine trees like 40 years ago. Hubby had shade...
