Relaxing getaway

Loved the quiet, relatively private beach. Found some beautiful shells. Cabana service with fresh towels available. Great walking path along the beach with showers.

Enjoy the beach without all the fuss. This has to be my most favorite area of the beach. It's very well maintained and the crowds are usually from the luxury hotels nearby. Love South Beach for major events but not for your weekend staycation.

This beach located North of Miami is excellent. Very clean with nice sand and waves not too dangerous (it was windy during our stay). As bal harbour is very safe with many cops, the beach is safe too.

I just love the Bal Harbour beach. It's very clean, not crowded, the sea seems calmer than other beaches close by. The walking path on the beach is great!

Lovely sand. Not too busy. Nice coastal walk in both directions. Grab a bike and ride it. We was staying at the St Regis. A great hotel.

Bal Harbour Beach is probably the most manicured beach in South Florida. Beatifully manicured board walk from 96th street all the way to Haulover Inlet, dog friendly, life guards, Pier for fishing enthusiast and more. However, it is designed to keep non Bal Harbour Residents (or non hotel guests) out. The only access to the beach for non residents is... More

What an amazing beautiful beach. Clean and not as much garbage floating around like some of the other beaches. The water was an clear green blue color and very way. The waves were just enough without being to powerful and knocking you over. It was such an amazing day spent there.
