The Miami Beach Boardwalk is one of our favorite strolls in the city. A fantastic elevated Boardwalk that runs along the oceanfront and extends from 24th to 46th Street.
The Boardwalk runs through Classic Miami Beach, home to some of the the city's iconic properties, the Fountainbleau and Eden Roc.
It is a beautiful well-maintained boardwalk and one of our favorite walks in the city.
This is a pedestrian only boardwalk but undergoing some transformation at the moment.
The Miami Beach Boardwalk is in the process of being converted to a wider Paver Walkway which will accomodate pedestrians and bicyclists and will form part of the Miami Beach Walk, a north-south path running from one end of Miami Beach to the other.
But for now, we still get to enjoy this beautiful boardwalk and its magnificent views... the dunes, the beach and the sparkling waters on one side...
...Striking architecture on the other...
...You might even get a peek into some of the hotels and condos lining the oceanfront...
...And some fantastic vegetation all around...
Along the Miami Beach Boardwalk we find:
There are plenty of beach access points throughout if you are up for a dip in the water...
If you come, there are some rules though:
Not Permitted 24 Hours A Day
As mentioned before, the boardwalk is being converted at the moment. Some stretches are already completed, like this short section between 29th and 30th Streets, so this is what it will look like in the future:
The southern end of the boardwalk is at 24th Street at the moment. Here it connects to the Paver Walkway of the Miami Beach Walk which brings you to South Beach and even further to South Pointe Park at the very tip of the island.
Running parallel just west to the Boardwalk, there is a paved path from 24th to 29th Streets if you are cycling. If you are on the Paver Walkway coming from South Beach, it curves a bit and leads you to it. This is not a particularly interesting path though.
The Boardwalk picks up again after 30th Street ending at 46th Street at Indian Beach Park. The segment north of 46th Street is still under construction.
You can see the status and details of the other sections of the Miami Beach Walk here, from South Pointe to Bal Harbour in the North.
There are many access points throughout the Boardwalk, enlarge the map to see where the entry points are, they are scattered just about every other block. Keep in mind there is ongoing construction, some access points may be blocked.
We use the City Parking Lot at 36th Street and Collins, there is direct access to the Boardwalk from here and rates are reasonable at $2 per hour.
Also at 36th Street Park you find restrooms, showers and changing facilities, so you can combine a couple of hours at the beach and a nice stroll on the boardwalk.
We will try our best to keep this page up to date. If you know of any changes to the Boardwalk as segments are being completed please let us know!
