Family oriented, this is probably one of the best alternatives if you’re in the south and you don’t want to drive all the way to South Beach or key biscayne . It has a small beach protected from the ocean, I love it

This is one of our favorite parks. It is quiet and beautiful. We like to go for an hour or two, bring a picnic and just pretend that Miami has not grown up into the big city it now is.

I really love this beach. I go with my family all the time. My favorite thing is that the beach is closed off from the ocean so you don't have to worry about sharks, swimming too far, etc. I don't even think the water is...More

A beautiful park hidden in the grove. A really nice place to enjoy the beach or to go kayaking. Whatever the time of the day you go, it is gorgeons.

Absolutely! It's a great location for such a special moment. Actually, there is a restaurant for dinner should you want to order some champagne or something special. Best of lucks!
