Haulover Beach is a mile-and-half stretch of pristine white sand beaches, cool ocean breezes and sparkling crystal clear waters, and yes, with the unique distinction of being Miami's only clothing optional beach.
The northern part of the beach is where bathers have the choice of going au naturel.
If this could make you or anyone in your group uncomfortable it is better to stay away.
There is a friendly environment where privacy and respect are expected, and locals are very active in promoting and protecting this environment.
Remember to observe proper etiquette at a nude beach. It is basically plain common sense: gawking is rude, making advances even ruder. Please be mindful of others.
The beaches are truly spectacular here...
As with all other Miami Beaches, visiting during the week is best to avoid the weekend crowds.
Haulover has lifeguards on duty, and there are chair and umbrella rentals available at the beach.
Concessions with restrooms and showers are plentiful, look for the art deco structures with the ship funnel shape all along the path that runs alongside the beach.
There are picnic tables and barbeque grills with plenty of trees to provide shade. The only drawback is that they are very close to the main road, so if you're looking for quiet surroundings this isn't it.
The path that goes along the beach is popular with bicyclists and rollerbladers as well.
