Excellent little beach. Definitely a hidden gem south of miami. It has an atoll, which is great for young kids where it's not too deep. Lifeguards are on duty. You can pay with your phone or with an app when you get to the beach.
In one of the most beautiful areas in Miami, Matheson Hammock Park is a window to the sea with a place for several interests . Walk in the mangrove, rock your boat, take sailing classes, Or bask on the beach by the atolón with your young children. My last visit on my bicycle at sun down allowed for a beautiful sunset, the sounds of birds as they prepared for night and q magical ride along the mangrove surrounded road where I could hear the creatures of the night come alive.
