Crandon Park Beach

Crandon Park's beautiful two-mile beach is consistently named among the top ten beaches in the nation. It is one of the most popular recreation destinations in all of Miami-Dade County. The beach is celebrated for its pristine sand, calm water, winding promenade, concession stands, and multiple picnic areas with tables and grills.

Crandon's famous offshore sandbar protects swimmers from a crashing surf. The sandbar changes constantly because of seasonal squalls, storms and currents. It is enjoyed by many people who swim to it and walk or wade along its length.  The beach is what's called a lagoon style, or low surf impact beach, and the shoreline varies--sloping from wading depth to six to twelve feet, depending on the tide.

Crandon's ocean and waves offer challenging sails for wind warriors. Kite-Board equipment rentals and lessons are offered at the park's beachside water sports concessions.
