  • Matheson Hammock Park has trail, picnic tables, facilities, on lagoon, lifeguard, parking. Miami skyline as backdrop, and near Fairchild tropical botanic gardens.  more »
  • Good location for kitesurfing in Miami and alternative to Crandon Park, because you can usually only kite there as a member on the weekend. Here it has shallow water and it is standing deep. Small caravan with kite school. Large parking lot where you can prepare your kite.

  • This is a very nice park with a lot of potential considering the location and the water view. Unfortunately the city of Miami has this piece of real estate neglected. They could make this park a beautiful destination. Plus generate $$$$ for its maintenance and a surplus. Unfortunately commissioners only focus now on Multimillion Dollar Grand Stadium Projects that can't sell enough seats to stay afloat.
  • A beautiful place, completely seperate from Miami, yet in close proximity. It just kept giving! The views are absolutely breathtaking of the city skyline. The beaches feel tropical with amazing coconuts growing on the trees. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would not have missed it! This is the BEST Hidden Secret beach spot - with great food as a bonus - in South Florida. The protected clean beach for kids (and adults) can't be beat. Safe spot for kids swimming - taught mine there almost a half century ago! AND the boat ramp is fantastic - too bad so many people found it
