Where to stroll, bike, rollerblade...

Views of the beach from Miami Beachwalk

The Miami Beach Walk, that fantastic path that runs along the eastern seashore of Miami Beach is still coming together and at the present time it is still a collection of paver walkways, boardwalks, and promenades, some completed, some in the process of being converted, some still in planning and permit stage.

Here is a map with the different segments, follow the links at the bottom for details on each and photographs showing current status. Many paths accomodate pedestrians and cyclists, the wooden boardwalk section is pedestrian only but now a parallel paver walkway runs alongside that allows cyclists.

Current Status of the Miami Beach Walk

Let's take a little tour starting from the southern end:

South Pointe Park - Paved Paths, Cutwalk Promenade

South Pointe Park sits at the southernmost tip of Miami Beach. You can walk or cycle along the cutwalk which follows the channel and into South Pointe Pier.

As it is the case for all of the Beach Walk, the sensitive dune network runs between the pathways and the beach. Please be sure to stay on the marked walks to minimize impact and avoid harming the dunes which are a protected area. There are beach access points throughout, use them!

And of course don't miss all ouf our colorful Art Deco Lifeguard Towers, sometimes not all of them will be visible from the path, for a closer peek walk towards the beach at any of the beach access points.
