A favorite among Miami locals, North Shore Open Space Park is a spacious park and beach area with plenty of space to stretch out on your own or with all your friends. Spend your morning swimming in its tranquil waters, or sunning yourself on the serene shore. Then have a picnic over on the green space, where plenty of barbecue grills can be found (just make sure to claim your early on the weekends when families tend to come out for birthday parties). The beach itself is not dog-friendly but the park area is, so if all you want is to take a walk and enjoy the sight of the Atlantic, you're free to bring them along there. Or come solo and enjoy one of the many walking trails found throughout. And finally, it's one of the few beaches where parking isn't quite as much of a hassle, so now you know. Just uh, keep it between us, yeah?
- Beaches: "Bring quarter to feed the meters. There's plenty of parking, but you don't want to get caught at an expired meter or risk getting a ticket that will ruin your beach day."
- Best for Beaches Because: A local's gem that promises sand, surf, and plenty of space (without the nightmare of SoBe parking), North Shore has won our readers over.
